Exchange programmes worldwide

If you are interested in studying abroad during your studies at the University of Münster, you have various options.

As a freemover, you have the opportunity to go to a university abroad without a partnership agreement. You should, however, pay attention to certain things that we have compiled under the topic Freemover in our brochure: "Where will you go?"

In some cases, the individual faculties offer study places as part of non-European exchange agreements. If you are interested in such a place, please contact your departmental coordinator, as your faculty is responsible for advising, applying and awarding these places.
