Every year, we are pleased to welcome around 150 exchange students from all over the world at our faculty. Here, they benefit from a wide range of English-taught courses, from living in Göttingen – where the dynamics of a student city meet the charm of a traditional German old town – and from a great international environment at our University right in the heart of Germany.

Interested in spending an exchange semester with us? When your University takes part in an Erasmus Agreement or an exchange program with the University of Göttingen, you can apply at your home University for an exchange semester in Göttingen.
