Incoming Exchange Students


If you are planning to  come to Erlangen as part of an international exchange, the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg has plenty to offer you. Our medical engineering programm offers a wide range of courses in English in our three branches: Medical Image and Data Processing, Medical Electronics and Medical Production Technology, Device Engineering and Prosthetics.

For the application as exchange student, a German language certificate is in general not necessary for ERASMUS exchange students if you have comparable English language certificates and want to choose English modules. If you like taking your entire degree here, you need a German language certificate (please refer to this page). For studying as an exchange student at the University Erlangen-Nuremberg, you have to apply at the Central Office for International Affairs of our university. Further information can be found here.

On this page you will find relevant  information for exchange students about the lectures taught in English language, lecture periods, examination periods and deadlines.
