ERASMUS+ guest students (EU) need to fill out the ERASMUS+ Learning Agreement (provided by home university) and send it to us through their International Office. Please have in mind that the minimum recommended language level for German is B1.
Our admission is based on the recommendation/ nomination of your home institution. Although it is not mandatory we appreciate to receive an up-to-date transcript of records. It helps us to advise you on choosing the ideal modules. Application deadline for the winter semester is June 15th, for the summer semester December 15th. You will receive an answer from us some weeks later.
International, non-ERASMUS-applicants may use the following form. Just leave the specific ERASMUS-questions, like "ERASMUS Code", open. If your home university requires you to fill out its' own form, that's fine with us, as long as it contains all the information required.
