FAUexchange – Direct exchange programme at FAU for students of all faculties
Study at FAU partner universities throughout the world
Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year can be submitted from 15 October 2021 via the Mobility Online portal. Further information is available at Applications.
FAU collaborates in teaching and research with a number of universities abroad. Many of these collaborations also involve student exchanges. As a result, FAU students can study abroad for one or two semesters, usually without paying tuition fees.
In most cases, the exchange programmes with FAU partner universities are for specific subjects. In other words, they are only open to students from a particular degree programme, department or faculty. The advantage of these exchange programmes is that you can be sure that the topics covered at the partner university will fit in with what you are studying at FAU. A major benefit of this is that it is easier to have course achievements obtained abroad accredited towards your studies at FAU.
Bearing this in mind, we would recommend all students to make faculty and degree programme specific exchange options their first choice (ERASMUS+, direct exchange).
As a first step, you should always check which exchanges are already offered by your degree programme and faculty.
Information about the exchanges offered by the faculty or specific degree programmes is available from the following offices:
- Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology: International Office
- Faculty of Business, Economics, and Law (School of Business, Economics and Society): International Relations Office
- Faculty of Business, Economics, and Law (School of Law): Internationalisation coordinators
- Faculty of Medicine: Office of the Dean for Student Affairs at the Faculty of Medicine
- Faculty of Sciences: Internationalisation coordinator
- Faculty of Engineering: Office for Student Information and Advice
FAUexchange – Direct exchange programme open to all students
The direct exchange programme FAUexchange coordinated by International Affairs offers further options for faculty and degree programme specific exchanges. This exchange programme brings together 36 partnerships across the university with universities located predominantly outside of Europe and offers various exchanges for FAU students at all faculties. It is particularly interesting for students in degree programmes or faculties which do not offer any suitable exchanges.
You can apply for an exchange place in your degree programme or your faculty (ERASMUS+, direct exchange) and for a place in the FAUexchange programme at the same time. Please watch out for different deadlines, procedures and points of contacts.
