Tip: If you’re currently studying at a university, college or some other institution of higher education, it’s good to confirm your study abroad plans with them first. Take a look at the course offering of the university you’re interested in on our website and create a study plan that you can present to your institution.This way you’ll already know if the study credits you earn abroad can be counted towards your degree at home.

2. Apply easily online

Get the required attachments for the university or program of your choice. See the list of required attachments by university and program here or on the application page of each university below.

Fill out the application for the university or program of your choice through the links below. Please read the applications instructions carefully before you apply.

In the application form, indicate whether you want to study for one or two semesters or complete a full degree (if available). If you wish, you can even combine two destinations or universities to a whole year abroad. It’s possible to apply for a second semester later on as well.*

3. Confirmation of study placement

We will process your application in 1-3 working days on average. We will then send you an email confirming your study abroad placement. In the email you can find your initial acceptance letter and further instructions.

Soon after you get the initial acceptance letter, we will send you an invoice for the application fee.

Then you’re ready to…

4. Get prepared

After receiving your confirmation email and initial acceptance letter you can begin your travel preparations. Here are some useful links:

Please note however that you cannot apply for a student visa at this stage yet – that comes later after you get your official acceptance letter (see below).

Funding & scholarships

If you need to apply for funding, do so early. Visit our scholarship page for more information on scholarship resources.

Asia Exchange Guide

With your initial acceptance letter that confirms your study placement we will also send a link to the Asia Exchange Guide for your destination.This Guide has more accommodation resources and much more besides. You will get the most up-to-date version of the Guide about 2 months before the semester.

5. Pay tuition fee, official acceptance letter & visa

You’ll get the invoice for the tuition fee about 2.5 months before the start of the semester.

You’ll also get the host university’s official acceptance letter a month before the semester starts at the latest. The letter will be sent to the street address you wrote in your application, so keep us updated if you happen to move.

The official acceptance letter is what you can use to apply for a student visa. Depending on the destination, applying for the visa might take from a few days up to a couple of weeks. See our visa pages for more information on how and when to apply for a visa.

6. Arrival and orientation

Ready, set, go! Once you have your student visa in hand, you’re good to go! Pack your backs, throw a farewell party and step into the best adventure of your life! We recommend you to arrive in time for the orientation, where you will learn how to navigate in the everyday academic life of your host university.

Keep your friends posted! Let your friends and family know about your adventures by writing a student blog. Be active, take part in your classes and learn everything you can both in- and outside of the classroom. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so make the most of it!
