Student exchange / Intercambio de estudiantes / Intercâmbio de estudantes
A crucial element of CALA is its compulsory student exchange leading to a double degree. CALA students from Münster spend at least two semesters at top-tier Latin-American partner universities and a semester in a company in Latin-America. MSB maintains partnerships for more than 23 years and provides free of charge exchange places. Vice-e-versa, exchange students coming from our partners in Latin America enrich the programme´s intercultural student mix in MSB´s courses - hereby obtaining a double degree from FH Münster.
Student exchange is supported by MSB´s international office (OfIS). Every student receives personal guidance and support. Students from our Latin-American partners are introduced through various events and a buddy programme. They mix with students from Germany and other countries in courses and receive personal support during their whole stay in Germany.
