We welcome you in Münster! If you are planning to go abroad for a semester, you can spend a semester as a guest student at our department. In this case, you will be able to obtain credits, but not a degree. We have inter-institutional agreements with eighteen universities all over the world.
It is an important to us to strengthen the mobility of students, staff and lecturers. Although no tuition fees are charged at the Münster University of Applied Sciences, all students have to pay a social contribution of around € 260 each semester.
Support, language courses & workshops
In order to ensure a smooth start for your stay, our International Office offers an International Reception Service (FHiRST). The office organizes language courses, workshops, trips and many other activities.
We offer a wide range of modules in five degree programs. International guest students are able to select courses freely within our department and furthermore within all departments of the university. Courses are taught mainly in German throughout the year, whereas English courses are usually scheduled in the summer term (April - July). The program of English courses is designed to assure that every incoming student can achieve at least 30 credit points (European Credit Transfer System, ECTS).
