International Studies of Sport Science and Coaching Courses


Erasmus & Degree seeking students

Students who decide to study at the University of Leipzig have the chance to earn an excellent university education within a rich learning environment.
So if you want to study here for one to two semesters, you can join us as an ERASMUS student, as an exchange student or as a scholarship holder.
If you're seeking a certain degree - e.g. Bachelor, Master, PhD - you need to qualify, because these study programmes require an admission.
Furthermore you have various options to develop your knowledge of German in Leipzig before and during your course.

The International Centre informs you on its website in German or English and of course its members are available to give you personal advice, too. The Faculty of Sport Science itself provides in addition the ERASMUS-coordinator.

Living in Leipzig

Speaking of studying in Leipzig: how is living in Leipzig?

There is a wide range of reasonably-priced apartments and rooms in Leipzig. A room in a hall of residence has the advantage of already being furnished and enables you to make contact with other students.
Shared apartments, so-called Wohngemeinschaften (WG), are particularly popular among Leipzig students.
Finally there is a wide choice of temporary accommodation for your first few days in Leipzig.

If you're more interested in Leipzig - its art and culture scene, its countryside und people -, don't miss to read "Wunderbar! The best of Germany" by The Guardian or "Arts Thrive in Leipzig, Bach’s Backyard" by The New York Times or discover the city by bycicle.

European Masters in Sport and Exercise Psychology

The European Masters in Sport and Exercise Psychology (EMSEP) is a new Erasmus Mundus Master's Programme organised by four leading European universities in the field: the University of Jyväskylä (Finland), the University of Leipzig (Germany), the University of Thessaly (Greece) and
Lund University (Sweden).

The network universities offer a joint curriculum for the students, as they will study in at least two universities during the programme. The programme graduates are awarded a double degree after successful completion of their degree studies. Scholarships are also available for best applicants.

Further information (e.g. deadline for applications) you find on the website of the University of Jyväskylä.

International Coaching Courses

Every year, on behalf of the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, in cooperation with the Sports Science Faculty of the University of Leipzig, we organize International Courses of Continued Studies for coaches and P.E. teachers from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Caribbean.
All courses are translated in the languages English, French, Arabic and Spanish.

Furthermore the International Courses are available for participants (up to 40 years of age) having a university/college degree in the field of sports, experience as active athletes and as coaches / P.E. teachers as well as good physical and psychological aptitude.

The duration of our courses comprehends 5 months (either from March till July or from September till January).
Course subjects are specialization (theory and practice), general science of training, sports medicine, sports pedagogy, sports psychology, strength training, sports massage and German language.

The course is sponsored by the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany. Every participant receives a monthly allowance and bears the costs for travelling to Leipzig and back home.
