Incoming Exchange Students

Incoming exchange students 2020/21 - winter semester

 

The application process is completed. Decisions were communicated by email.

Applications are accepted under the condition that exchanges are possible and safe. We carefully will observe the development of the Corona pandemic and reserve the right to withdraw the acceptance.

Depending on the course of study teaching will be completely or partly online. Please contact the exchange coordinators and ask for further details.

Some classes might only be available online. The timetables and study plans might be subject to change, if necessary. At the moment, we cannot confirm that students will be allowed to use the studios and workshops to the full extent, as usual.

The winter semester starts on 28th October 2020 and end on 27th February 2021.

Information on the following steps will be sent by email shortly.

The COVID-19 pandemic remains unpredictable and we are facing many possible challenges for the winter semester in terms of safety, international travel restrictions and academic developments.
