Interprofessional and problem-based learning, individually planned clinical/practical modules, and carrying out supervised research projects are some of the study opportunities offered to exchange students at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences.
Partner universities are kindly asked to confirm their nominated students. This can be done either in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in a letter which the student uploads in the web-application.
The academic year consists of two semesters. Autumn semester runs from mid-August to mid-January, spring semester from mid-January to the beginning of June. Students doing clinical rotations usually have a study period of three months (according to agreements).
Please note - Exchange students must be present at the start of the semester, and take part in the Orientation Week. You will find the dates for the Orientation Week in the online application form (see link below).
