Studying in Cologne for one or two semesters
Students from partner universities in other countries can come here for a semester abroad (Semesteraufenthalt), during which they take and attend courses, seminars, internships, and written exams from the Human Medicine course curriculum provided by the Medical Faculty.
A term abroad can last for one semester (half an academic year) or two semesters (one academic year).
To be able to spend a term abroad here, the student’s home university must already have a cooperation arrangement (partnership) with the Medical Faculty at the University of Cologne.
Unfortunately, students from non-partner universities cannot spend a term abroad here.
Nomination deadline are as follows:
01 December for the following summer semester (April - September)
01 June for the following winter semester (October - March)
