In order to be admitted as an exchange student to the FAU you have to meet the following requirements:

  • Your major must be in business administration, social sciences or another related subject
  • Your home university has to send an official nomination letter or email to us.
  • You must have at least completed the equivalent of a first degree (2 to 3 years of education depending on the country of origin)
  • You must have sufficient command of the German language (A2 or better in CEFR) to be able to follow the lectures and to ensure a succesful social and cultural integration.

In Germany the independance and self-maturity of the student is at a very high level, so it requires communication skills in German for all aspects of daily life inside and outside the University.
