Please note:

  • Due to the very high number of registrations we receive, we will only send you an answer if we can find a tandem partner for you. You can check your current status in your user profile.
  • Please note that we do NOT match on a 'first come, first served' - basis
  • If you are going to stay for two semesters, make sure to register again for the following semester.
  • The acquisition of credit points (ECTS) for participation in the tandem programme is only possible if you have been matched before the last introductory session. Please note the deadlines for the respective semester. If you are assigned a tandem partner after this deadline, participation is only possible without obtaining credit points.

  • We will only get in contact with you through your University of Münster- email address. Please make sure you check it regularly (and also your spam folder).

Data privacy: By sending in the registration form the sender agrees that their data will be saved and used for the matching process of the tandem programme and that, in case a tandem partner has been found, the data will be forwarded to the tandem partner.
