Dear exchange students!
We are very happy that you have chosen to spend
your exchange period at the University of Hamburg. For general information, please have a look at the University pages for visiting ERASMUS students
. This page will also provide you with information on German classes
After you have been nominated
by your home university, it is time for you to decide on your programme of study.
If you wish to attend classes, please search the list of modules for Erasmus students
. You will be able to take only modules of one colour for each semester to avoid time clashes.
We also offer a limited number of lab-based research projects, these are, however, subject to constraints of space in the labs and staff.
Please feel free to ask for information regarding classes research projects, used techniques, lab equipment etc.
Make sure that you get your choices approved by both the ERASMUS-coordinator in Hamburg and your study advisor/coordinator at your home university.
The University of Hamburg does not charge tuition fees. You must, however, pay a semester contribution fee
. All exchange students pay a reduced rate which is € 263,00
in winter semester 2017/18. The semester contribution fee includes a seasonal ticket for illimited travel by public transport throughout the Hamburg Traffic Community (HVV). Please do not pay before finding a request for payment in your STiNE account.
We will try to accomodate you in one of the halls of the Studierendenwerk
which are located all over Hamburg, but we cannot guarantee you accomodation. The application form will be sent to your by the ERASMUS coordinator. Please be aware that we do not accept requests for a particular hall. The minimum period of stay will be 5 months in the winter semester
and 4 months in the summer semester
. In case of a shorter stay, you may apply for a short-time contract at a slightly higher rate.
A good grasp of German is essential for getting on well in classes, writing papers and making presentations. So please take a look on the page on German language classes
