Applying as an Overseas Student

Students apply via Mobility-Online after being nominated for an exchange or dual degree program by their own university. Nomination details will be provided each semester via email to our partner universities.
Only after students have been successfully nominated they will receive the application details from us!

  • Signed application form
     (to be completed via Mobility-Online and then uploaded after signing!)  

  • Study plan

    Please note that at this stage your study plan is provisional only, as the final course catalogue is not published until shortly before the semester start. Participating in certain courses is therefore subject to a subsequent review and cannot be guaranteed. It is also not clear at this stage if the number of participants will be restricted.
