How to apply?

  • We recommend you make yourself familiar with all the travel-related restrictions and entry requirements. Due to Covid-19, many universities may make last-minute decisions to teach online.
  • Before you apply, please look at the website of the partner university and do your research about the courses they offer. Please consult your study counsellor whether the subjects are suitable for your studies. 
  • Please note that academic calendars can be different. 
  • Do not forget to plan your exchange semester into your curriculum and do not be afraid to ask for advice from your study counsellor.
  • Pay attention to the application deadlines and do not leave it at the last minute. Exchange studies outside of the EU require a visa or temporary residence permit, which means you need more time to apply for necessary documents.
