Applying for an Exchange Programme

To participate in an exchange program you have to apply in a two phase procedure. In the first phase you have to apply at the Department of Computer Science. Then, eventually, you will be nominated for a place of an exchange program. After that, you apply at the partner university directly. Once you have fulfilled all prerequisites (e.g., TOEFL), an application usually is successful.

Note that if you are studying in a study program that extends over multiple departments, detailed information how to apply can be found in the FAQ section.

Applying at the Department of Computer Science

For the first phase of the application procedure you have to apply directly at the Department of Computer Science. To do so, you have to submit your application form in time in the study abroad office hour.

Please note that it is possible and also encouraged to apply for more than one university. But you have to include a motivation letter and a description of the courses you like to participate for each university.
