Advice for the North American direct exchange

In North America, it is much more common than in Germany for exchange students to be included in societal and academic life. Sociableness and open-mindedness towards political, cultural and social matters are therefore prerequisites along with good academic standing. We strongly recommend applicants thoroughly inform themselves about the North American university system as well as about our specific partner universities. As the North America program is usually in high demand among applicants, we also recommend for applicants to be flexible concerning their choice of partner university. Applicants should have very good academic standing for this program.
