Where in the world should I go?
Spain or Singapore, Japan or Jordan, Ukraine or the United States? The important thing is to ask yourself what you expect from your study visit abroad. Do you want to quickly participate in courses taught in a language you already know, or are you more interested in learning a new language and discovering a new country? And what benefits do you hope to gain for your academic career and professional prospects? Before applying for study abroad, we recommend getting information about your first-choice universities which will make it easier to write your application.
In addition to the established student exchange partnerships supported by the University of Münster, you can also apply as a "free mover", i.e. individually as a visiting student, at numerous universities worldwide for a duration of one or two semesters. You can obtain specific information about such offers directly from the International Office or the respective host university. The application requirements for guest students often include providing a certificate of language proficiency, a transcript of your academic achievement, in some cases, a letter of motivation and references from your professors. You may also be required to pay tuition fees to the host university.
You can find more information about foreign academic systems, universities and application modalities on the website of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). For general tips on organising foreign visits abroad, the International Office offers an information event for students interested in study abroad.
