STEP 2: INTERVIEW - CHECKING YOUR MOTIVATION AND LANGUAGE ABILITIES

In a Skype interview we will check your language capacities and your motivation to study in our University as an exchange student.

If you get a "Notice of Acceptance", please continue with:

STEP 3: REGISTRATION AS EXCHANGE STUDENT:

After receiving Notice of Acceptance from our department, you need to register as a student. Your Notice of Acceptance will hold all information how to do this.

After acceptance and registration...

In the learning agreement, which you find under: STEP 1 - NR. 6 we have prefilled a number of classes as PROPOSED STUDY PROGRAMME. This is to ensure the basis to achieve 30 ECTS. In case you get accepted there will be a meeting in the first week of your study in IO, where an individual study-programme for each exchange student according to wishes and needs will be set up. The classes mentioned in the learning agreement are at your disposal. However, if your German language proficiency under STEP 2 turned out to be adequate, you may also take part in non-individual classes (theory, CAD, photo).

Please note: the approval of your application is done soon after the exchange students are selected. This selection will take place shortly after the deadline of application.
