International Module Handbook for Exchange Students

During your stay as an exchange student at our faculty, you can attend various courses offered by our institutes that are taught in English. Apart from that, there are many courses with an international focus. The international module handbooks in the "Downloads and Links" section will give you an overview about the courses that are offered at our faculty.

Application and Admission Process

There are different ways to apply for an exchange at our faculty. If you are from Europe, there is the inner-Europe exchange program ERASMUS. If you're not from a European country, you may benefit from our worldwide network of partner universities. Furthermore, there is always the possibility to apply for the admission of international students whose university does not belong to our current partner universities or exchange programmes.

Incoming exchange students are administrated centrally at the International Office. You are admitted as non-degree student for a limited study period (one or two semesters). As an international programme student, you are allowed to register for classes and to earn credits under the same conditions as regular students at our university.
You can find more detailed information about the application and admission process using the link in the "Downloads and Links" section down below.

Important: the application deadlines are May 31 for the winter term and December 31 for the summer term.
