Your path to Mannheim University of Applied Sciences depends on what you want to achieve.
- If you wish to study as a full-time student to obtain a degree, please consult the information for degree-seeking applicants.
- If you wish to study for one or two semesters only, then you are a non-degree-seeking applicant.
You are studying at one of our more than 120 partner universities and would like to spend one or two semesters in Mannheim. You intend to have your credits transferred back home.
In this case you need a nomination from your home institution. This is a requirement for obtaining the exchange student status – especially for Erasmus+ scholarships and other fixed programmes. Please contact the responsible office at your home university for information regarding the nomination process.
You have been granted a DAAD scholarship (or a similar funding opportunity) and have found a suitable course of study at Mannheim University of Applied Sciences.

These depend on your plans and may differ considerably. Be aware of the expected level of proficiency! For more information, see this site.
Important: The Center for International Students in Konstanz does not assign university places. They check your documents (free of charge!) and issue the certificate needed for admission.
In most cases, the best route is to apply for a student applicant visa during the selection process instead of first waiting for admission! Otherwise you may risk losing your place because there is usually not enough time between the admission period and the start of the semester.
