Language Certificate

Occasionally, partner universities request a proof of your language proficiency. In case you do not have a certificate (e.g. TOEFL or DAAD) yet, contact the language center to certify your language proficiency after examination. Find further information on the homepage of the Language Centre.

Application at the partner university

After we have selected and nominated you for an ERASMUS+ place, you will need to apply at the partner university. Please keep in mind the following suggestions:

  • Obtain information about the application procedure, application deadline, accommodation, and course offer on the website of the partner university.

  • Hand in the requested application documents as early as possible. Do not wait until the end of the application deadline. Courses are often distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. Therefore, try to apply for and enrol in courses as early possible.

  • Often, accommodation in student residences is only limited. Again, it is beneficial to apply for a room early.

  • Would you like to get in touch with students who studied at the partner university you applied for? We can give you contact information on request.

Buddy programme

The language center of the Kassel University organizes a "Buddy programme", matching incoming students with local students, called buddies. Would you like to be a buddy and assist an incoming student during his/her first days in Kassel? It is a great opportunity to gain experience and international contacts. Find more information here.
