Anyone who would like to come to Münster on an exchange programme during their studies can do so with the ERASMUS Programme, for example, or with any other exchange agreement between Münster University and their home university.
Exchange students can apply to the Student Support Services for single rooms or apartments. Another option is to look around on the market for rented accommodation. ERASMUS students also have their own "accomodation exchange".
In all the departments and institutes of Münster University, there are coordinators who can answer any questions you may have on studying in Münster. The coordinator for your particular subject can provide information on lectures, seminars and credits and also help to prepare a study plan.
Studying in Münster is a good opportunity to learn German or to build on existing knowledge of the language. There is a wide range of German language courses on offer at the Münster University Language Centre.
