Besides, they are strongly advised to have completed at least the first two years of their Bachelor's degree programme before starting their exchange semester at our faculty.

Master-level exchange students can study with us for a maximum of one semester. Bachelor-level students can stay for up to two semesters, depending on the amount of places available according to the relevant exchange agreement.

Note: Courses for exchange students in the fields of Sociology and Pedagogical/ Educational Sciences are only offered in the autumn semester!
