UC Berkeley Exchange Program
Outstanding bachelor students of our department are invited to apply for the Berkeley exchange program.
Once a year, up to three students are given the opportunity to spend a year abroad at our partner University UC Berkeley, California. Students should have excellent grades and the goal to apply for the Ph.D. program at the BGSE after finishing their bachelor degree. Credits earned in Berkeley will be transferable towards the doctoral program in Bonn.
Successful candidates will need to apply for individual grants by organizations, such as the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), German Academic Scholarship Foundation (DFG), or Fulbright for their stay abroad. The Department of Economics offers support in issuing letters of recommendation and reports.If you are interested, please contact the coordinator Daniel Krähmer.
