Erasmus+

Steps to successful exchange studies

Are you enrolled in a partner university of the University of Kassel and wish to come to study in Kassel for one or two semester with Erasmus+ or another programme? If that is the case, you have found the right place.

All exchange students can take part in a pre-semester Erasmus German course.

This is a two-week long intensive language course. A fee is required to be paid for participation in this course.

The current dates of the course can be found in the semester plan.

If you are enrolled in one of the partner institutions of the University of Kassel and wish to spend one or two semesters at the University of Kassel as an exchange student (i.e. LLP/ERASMUS programme or double degree), please fill out the online form. By sending the completed form you are applying for a place of study at the University of Kassel. For further information on the application procedure see the webpage for online applications.

As a prospective exchange student you are not required to present us with any academic certificates. Your application can be submitted in either German or English.
