Application and Admission

Before you come: Application and Admission

If you are a student at one of our partner universities and would like to spend a semester or year studying in Mannheim, you need to apply for an exchange at your home university. Please contact the International Office at your home university for information on application criteria and deadlines.


After Arrival in Mannheim

Exchange students coming to the University of Mannheim to complete a semester or year abroad are supported by the International Office and the exchange coordinator at the respective school. While the International Office handles administrative issues (such as admission, visa issues and registration) as well as accommodation and German language courses, the exchange coordinator can support you in the more academic aspects of your exchange, in particular your course choice and learning agreement.

The exchange coordinator for the master’s program in Economics is:
