The ISM campuses offer you an international atmosphere with a growing number of exchange students coming to the ISM every year. At the ISM, you can study in international teams and meet students from all over the world.

If you would like to apply as an exchange student, you need to give short notice to the ISM’s International Office and to your home institution’s international office, so that we can jointly organize your exchange semester with us. If you are not a student of a partner university, please contact the International Office of the ISM online. In both cases, please use the application form and fill in your personal data and tell us what information you require.
