We are pleased that you are interested in spending your stay abroad in the beautiful Hanseatic and University City of Rostock.
During your guest study period you can study for one or two semesters at the University of Rostock, without having to acquire a degree at the end.

It gives you a chance to get to know the German academic system, the University of Rostock, and the advantages offered by a university city by the sea. You can collect credit points (ETCS / Credit Points) during this period and obtain an achievement certificate, which can be credited to you by your home university.

We have been welcoming students from all over the world since 1419 - will we perhaps welcome you soon too?

We look forward to hearing from you, and to seeing you soon in Rostock!

Every semester, the Rostock International House (RIH) organises diverse and interesting orientation weeks to welcome newly enrolled international students to the University of Rostock. Here you can find information on the current orientation week.
