Semester Exchange

How to apply

Exchange students from universities that have a partnership with the WiSo Faculty can be nominated for their study abroad programme directly by their home university's exchange coordinators.

The WiSo Faculty does not accept freemovers, i.e. students from universities without an existing partnership with the WiSo Faculty. Students who are interested in completing their entire programme in Cologne are requested to get in touch with the WiSo Student Service

Your academic options

During your stay as a guest student at the WiSo Faculty, you can attend courses in Economics, Business Administration, Sociology and Political Sciences. Incoming students have access to all courses offered in the Faculty's 'Course options for incoming students'. These comprise a comprehensive range of bachelor and master courses taught in English as well as a number of bachelor courses taught in German.

Bachelor students who come to Cologne in the fourth year of their bachelor studies may also choose from the course options offered at master level.

You can find information on the WiSo Faculty's departments and institutes as well as their respective areas of specialisation here.
