To which email address do I send my Online-Learning-Agreement?
(Some universities still use the pdf version of the LA. Please send it to:

Do I need a language certificate English for the application in January?

Can I submit the application by mail?

Should I apply for a semester of leave?

If you take a leave of absence for the obligatory stay abroad, you can still take exams in Osnabrück, so it is always advisable to apply for a leave of absence in the Bachelor (Studierendensekretariat).

The only advantage of staying enrolled is that you can validate your CampusCard, which means that when you return you will have the semester ticket again and can pay cashless in the Mensa (but of course you will then pay the full amount).

Can I apply for ERASMUS+ and university partnerships at the same time?
Yes, but the application procedures are different. For university partnerships please contact Mrs. Beate Teutloff in the Int. office. For ERASMUS+ applications Petra Dießel in the Mobility Office of the IKW.
