Do you wish to apply as ERASMUS exchange student? Does your university have a cooperation agreement on student exchange with RWTH Aachen University?
To apply, please visit the link below. You can apply either within the Erasmus+ program if your coordinator already nominated you as exchange student, or within RWTH Exchange Worldwide if we cooperate with your home university located outside Europe.
We look forward to hearing from you!
German language skills
Keep in mind: you will be in contact with many German speaking patients, you will be involved in the clinical everyday routine, and in order to get the most out of this experience, we strongly recommend you a good command of German, starting with B1 or B2 (CEFR levels). Insufficient command of German (less than B1) is a reason for rejection of your application.
