Within the framework of the programme, only one course or module can be attended at the host university.

Find out below which subjects, departments or specific courses are offered by the member universities. The application deadline is 30 April for the following winter semester and 30 September for the summer semester.

The contingent is limited. Please note the individual requirements of the respective partner university.

Participation in examinations and the awarding of ECTS credits is offered individually according to the module. Credit transfer or recognition of achievements must be agreed with the home university. There is no entitlement to credit transfer and recognition of achievements.
