Visiting Students (ERASMUS, University Partnerships etc.)

As an alternative to full degree studies, foreign students have the opportunity to study at the University of Rostock for one or two terms, gaining credit points accepted at their home university. This refers to visiting studies without degree, based e.g. on the so-called ERASMUS programme or one of our university partnerships.

Information on the ERASMUS programme, university partnerships and the application procedure etc. are provided at the links displayed below.

In addition, there is the opportunity to come to the University of Rostock as a „free mover“, i.e. as a student from a university that has not entered a partner contract with Rostock. Applicants who use this opportunity have to arrange all aspects of their stay abroad themselves. In any case, the international coordinator or examination office at the home department should be contacted.

Application deadlines

15.1. for the summer term (1. April – 30. September)

15.7. for the winter term (1. October – 31. March)


ERASMUS is an acronym for „European Action Scheme for the Mobility of University Students“ and belongs to the European programme „Lifelong learning“ (LLP). Study visits under the Erasmus programme may last between 3 and 12 months. The University of Rostock has entered many partnerships with universities from all over Europe. The Rostock International House cares, in cooperation with the departments and partner institutions, about entering, prolonging and implementing these bilateral contracts. New partnerships can be entered short term and uncomplicated if both sides agree about the type, duration and extent of the related exchange programme. The first contact persons are the ERASMUS departmental coordinators of the home universities. They inform about exchange opportunities, support you with making contact and with issuing the Learning Agreement.

The ERASMUS programme not only ensures that the credits earned abroad are accepted by the home university but does also support students with monthly paid scholarships. The related study places are allocated by the home universities.

University Partnerships

In addition to the ERASMUS programme, which is relevant for Europe only, students have the opportunity to arrange their stay abroad on the basis of Rostock’s (worldwide) university partnerships. The university cooperates with universities from Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and South America regarding research and education. There are regular exchanges with partner universities in the USA, Canada, South Africa, Mexico, Western Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Cuba and Argentina.
