Exchange Students

Hints and FAQ for handling the Coronavirus (COVID19)

Dear students and interested students,

Please visit the university website for the latest information on how to deal with the coronavirus! You can find a current article here.

Short-term studies, visiting students, exchange programmes

In case you only would like to spend one or two semesters at TU Ilmenau instead of the whole course of studies, you are welcome as exchange student. As a prerequisite, you have to be enrolled in the same or a similar subject area in your home country and you have to finish it there as well.

Nevertheless, in this case the maximum period of studies at TU Ilmenau is one year. The application procedure depends on whether your home university has an inter-university partnership agreement with us or not. Exchange students coming from such a partner university apply at home university’s local responsible first.

FREEMOVER apply directly at TU Ilmenau. Please note that not all subjects are offered to exchange students in all semesters. Information on available subjects can be taken from the TU Ilmenau course catalogue.

In order to guarantee smooth organisation, please apply until December 1st for the summer term and June 1st for the winter term. We cannot guarantee that applications after these dates can be dealt with in due time.
