Univ. of Ulm - Baden-Wuerttemberg Exchange

Exchange students are not restricted to choosing their courses from one single study program, instead, they can choose a combination of courses from different programs and from different faculties. It is possible to choose a combination of courses in German and English, as long as the applicant meets the language requirements in both languages (at least level B1).

The Vorlesungsverzeichnis lists all the courses in any given semester
. However, the Vorlesungsverzeichnis is often not completed and finalized until a few weeks before the beginning of the actual lecture periods. Therefore, students should check the listings of previous winter or summer semesters while planning their courses as most (but not all) courses are repeated on an annual basis. Moreover, the International Office provides you with information about available courses
In general, the language of instruction is German. Most study programs offered at Ulm University are German-taught programs. However, there may be select courses taught in English even in German study programs. In addition, there are is a growing number of Master programs taught in English. However, medicine and dentistry are strictly taught in German.
The university offers intensive German language courses
before the semester starts as well as German language courses during the semester.
The Studentenwerk Ulm leases rooms at several residential homes in Ulm and Neu-Ulm. Rooms are usually leased for one semester minimum (6 months). The best time to submit the application is around 3 months before your intended arrival.
It is somewhat difficult for international students to find furnished rooms or apartments in Ulm. Students are therefore strongly advised to use the housing assistance service offered by the International Office. All students renting a room in a student residence must make a security deposit of € 300.
