Faculty cooperations worldwide (non-European)


The faculty has a number of separate faculty agreements with partner universities worldwide. These exist in addition to the worldwide university cooperations, within the framework of which you can also apply as a student of RWTH.

In contrast to university cooperations, only students of the same faculty can apply for faculty cooperations, i.e. the number of applications for one spot is usually smaller. Generally, any student enrolled in a degree program of the faculty can apply.

The study and examination achievements that have been completed at the foreign university and are classified as equivalent after an examination, will be recognized at the home university. However, an agreement must be made with the Student Exchange coordinator of the faculty before the stay abroad and as part of the registration process.

So far, experience has shown that the best time to study abroad is in the first or second semester of the Master's degree program. The reasons are:

  • good academic qualifications after completing the basic subjects in the Bachelor's degree program,
  • more flexibility in the selection of the courses offered in the Master's degree program compared to the Bachelor's degree program,
  • sufficient range of English taught courses in the Master's degree program.
