We are pleased that you have decided to study at Mainz University of Applied Sciences. Studying at Mainz University of Applied Sciences means intensive contacts between students and university teachers, small teaching units and many joint projects.

We know that the decision to live and study in a foreign country is always a difficult and exciting step. But it is one that you will not regret.

We at the International Office will support you in your plans and are here for you before and during your stay here in Mainz. We offer assistance with an introduction to studying here (at the beginning of the summer and winter semester). In addition, tutors are also available to answer questions about everyday life, other organizational questions and, of course, questions about studying.

Student exchange to Hochschule Mainz – Winter Semester 2024/2025

Dear students, dear friends and colleagues,

Hochschule Mainz, University of Applied Sciences, is looking forward very much to welcoming exchange students in the winter semester 2024/2025.
We know that a stay abroad during your studies is a „once-in-a-lifetime-opportunity“ for you.

The schools of Design and Engineering start with the introduction on second half of September. We advise exchange students to arrive slightly earlier so they can settle in before the start of studies.

Please note that rooms in the student residence can only be rented for the entire semester, from 1st of Septemer 2024 to 28th of February 2025.

Please find more information for incoming exchange students on the faculty-related websites below. We are looking forward to welcoming you in Mainz!
