Application Procedure


The application period for Erasmus study places for the academic year 2023/24 is from 01.01. - 31.01.2023.

The central online application portal will be open from 01.01.2023 (00:00) to 31.01.2023 (12:00). You can reach it via this link: central application portal for studies abroad.

The application period for possibly remaining places for the summer semester is from 01.04. - 15.04.2023.

In the online application form you can specify a maximum of 3 preferred partner universities, for each of which you will assign a priority. We try to nominate each student for a place at his/her preferred university. However, this is often not possible due to the exchange numbers agreed upon in the bilateral agreement. Our Student Exchange/Erasmus Office will be happy to provide you with information on the rough ratio of the number of applications for partner university X to the number of available places. We therefore recommend that you apply to several partner universities. After the final allocation of places, we will nominate you at the partner university (nomination period varies, winter semester usually mid-March - early May). In general, you will be contacted by the partner university or by us and informed about the further application/registration process at the partner university. An online learning agreement must be submitted to the International Office of the RWTH at the latest two weeks before the beginning of your stay abroad. Credit transfer of the study achievements abroad may be granted upon application after return from the exchange stay.
