International Visiting Students

International visiting students

International visiting students come for a one or two-semester guest study at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences. Because they do not complete the entire degree program including graduation at our university, a simplified application procedure apples for them.

With regard to international visiting students, we distinguish between the exchange students who come within the framework of university partnerships at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences, and freemover students. Freemover students come from universities which are not partnered with the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences, and can complete a guest studies with us, as long as study places are available. The following applies to both groups: They must remain enrolled at their home university during their stay at the Osnabrück University of Applied Sciences.

Visiting students as well as freemover students benefit from our services that contribute to a successful study visit:

  • We find you accommodation
  • At the beginning of your stay and also later, a buddy assists you. Your buddy is a student in a higher semester, which picks you up from the train station, helps your while moving into your dorm room and accompanies you, for example, when completing administrative procedures or doctor's visits.
  • As a guest student, you can not only take part in the university courses, but also in the courses and seminars offered by the Career Center and the Learning Center, the offerings of the university sports and the university school communities and much more

On the following pages, you find information on all major aspects such as  to the application process, the university, costs and financing opportunities.
