FAUexchange – Direct exchange program at FAU for students of all faculties
Study at FAU partner universities throughout the world
FAU collaborates in teaching and research with a number of universities abroad. Many of these collaborations also involve student exchanges. FAU students can study abroad for one or two semesters at a partner university, usually without paying tuition fees.
In most cases, the exchange programs with FAU partner universities are for specific subjects. In other words, they are only open to students from a particular degree program, department or faculty. The advantage of these exchange programs 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.
We would recommend all students to make faculty and degree program 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 program and faculty. An overview of contacts is available under International Service
FAUexchange – Direct exchange program open to all students
The direct exchange program FAUexchange coordinated by International Affairs offers further options for faculty and degree program specific exchanges. This exchange program 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 programs or faculties which do not offer any suitable exchanges.
You can apply for an exchange place in your degree program or your faculty (Erasmus+, direct exchange) and for a place in the FAUexchange program at the same time. Please watch out for different deadlines, procedures and points of contact.
Information on the partner universities in the direct exchange program FAUexchange and help with the application procedure is available on our websites.
