The selection process

We work with the Committee for International Scholarships/Grants to select “Study Abroad Global” and Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility participants on the basis of their application documents and, usually, an interview. The committee is comprised of student representatives, non-professorial academic staff representatives, professors and International Office staff. If you will be invited to an interview depens on the number of applicants, on the application situation and the exchange programme.

You will need to be enrolled at the University of Konstanz, even while you are on your exchange, to take part in a University of Konstanz exchange programme. Additionally, you will need to fulfil your host university’s requirements (for academic level, language skills, etc.) in order to be accepted. We will also take your extracurricular activities and personal qualification for an exchange into account.

The University of Konstanz nominates applicants for an exchange at a partner university. The partner university then makes the final decision about whether to accept an applicant. Generally, the nominees are accepted to the exchange programme.
