Exchange & Erasmus

"An exchange is not simply a semester of study at a foreign university in a land far from home. In filling out that stack of rather tedious documents and learning agreements etc etc etc you are signing onto an expedition of self discovery. The word exchange could easily be switched for discovery."

Caroline Burke, Home University: University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Exchange students, both undergraduate and graduate, can take a broad variety of courses, taught in German or English.

Please note:
In order to successfully take and finish courses at the University of Konstanz, exchange students should be fluent in either German or English. This translates to a B1/2 level of the Common European Frame of Reference for Languages. 

If you wish to attend courses offered by several different departments, this is certainly possible. However, please make sure that most of the courses you wish to take also correspond with the subject area(s) you are studying at your home university.
