One last thing

If necessary in the Credit Exchange of the student, we can also design a Study Program of 20 ECTS. In this case, the Group Project (12 ects) will be replaced by an Individual Paper (2 ects). Students then can stay till end of April – middle of May. If there is no Partner Agreement yet, our International Office can arrange this. Contact us for more information.
