Many of our incoming exchange students come for one semester - and then chose to stay on for another. The best compliment ever. Exchange students are fully integrated into our regular programmes and can select from a broad range of courses across various semesters and diverse programmes.
To apply for an exchange semester there are a few basic provisos
- You must be enrolled at one of our 130 partner universities (we do not accept Free Movers)
- You must be fluent in English for a semester in an English-taught programme* (or in German for a semester in a German-taught programme)
- You need to submit an application dossier
Students enrolled at the FHNW (outgoing) may (or if they are IM students, must) apply for one or two semesters abroad at one of the partner universities. These applications must be made via the International Coordinator of their campus.
* Especially suited for exchange semesters are the various courses taught entirely or partially in English: BSc in Business Administration (International Management in Olten and the BSc in International Business Management (semester 3 in autumn and semester 6 in spring entirely in English) in Basel.
