Admission procedure

If you're interested in studying for up to two semesters at WHU and your home university is a partner university of WHU, you may apply for admission to WHU as exchange student after being selected and officially nominated by your school. Please contact the international office at your home university for details on your school’s exchange program with WHU.

Once we have received your official nomination as an exchange student from your home university, you will be provided with further information about our online application system from our exchange coordinators.

After submitting a complete application, you will then receive an information package and your letter of acceptance, opening the doors to Germany.

If your home university is not a partner university of WHU (see list of WHU's partner universities), you may apply for admission to WHU as a guest student / freemover under certain conditions. For further information, please see the guest student / freemover section.

If you would like to apply for admission to WHU as a degree-seeking student, please contact the respective program office at WHU.
