Applications and enrolment

If you are interested in studying at the University of Münster as an exchange student, you can apply through the ERASMAS Programme or participate in an exchange programme arranged between your home university and the University of Münster.

Living in Münster

The University of Münster does not provide accommodation to students. This means that all students are responsible for finding a place to live. Since rooms and apartments are in high demand in Münster, finding a room should be the first thing on your to-do list as you prepare for your study visit.

Academic support in the faculties

Advisors are available in all faculties and institutes of the University of Münster to help you with any problems you have concerning your major or degree programme. The advisor for your particular subject can give you information about lectures, seminars and credits, and even help you draw up a study plan.

Language courses

Studying in Münster is a good opportunity to learn German or build on your existing knowledge of the language. The Language Centre at the University of Münster offers a wide range of German language courses to get you up to speed.

Welcome Week, Buddy Programme and recreational activities

A "Welcome Week" for exchange students is held at the beginning of every semester. In the Buddy Programme, exchange students team up with student mentors who help them get acquainted with Münster and the University. There are also regular recreational activities where German and international students can get to know one another.

Practical information

Those who decide to study at a foreign university are thankful for any advice and help they can get. That's why the University of Münster offers exchange students a wide array of support services. There are also practical matters that you will have to take care of before and after you arrive in Münster.
