Become part of Europe’s largest exchange programme

Are you studying at a foreign European university and would like to complete one or two semesters in Germany?

The benefit to you: you will be approved in a simplified process at the FOM and will not pay any student fees for your visit. There is also an option to receive a monthly bursary from the European Commission via the university in your home country.
