Spending a semester in Bingen
We are very pleased to welcome increasing numbers of exchange and programme students from many partner universities all over the world to Bingen.
Good and individual support is very important to us, ensuring students are able to get off to a great start and study successfully in Bingen and the Middle Rhine region.
For our exchange students, we offer modules taught in English. Please find a list of these modules below.
Our regular lectures are held almost exclusively in German. For exchange students who wish to participate, a minimum of B1 proficiency in German is required, provided this is covered in the Inter-Institutional Agreement and our Departments do not require other prerequisites (Please note: Other requirements apply to students who complete a full course of study with us and are pursuing a degree).
How to apply
Anyone wishing to spend an exchange semester or year with us through a university partnership between their own university and Bingen UAS must first apply to their home university and be selected.
The information on this page is intended for those students who would like to take part in our regular (mostly German-speaking) courses during their exchange stay.
Application Deadline yearly for winter term is 1th December and for summer term is 1th June.
2. Online Application
After you have received an e-mail about the registration, you can fill out and send the application online. This is possible in German as well as in English.
3. Processing your Application
After you have sent your application to us online, your application will be processed further. You will be informed by us about the documents to be submitted.
4. What is the next step?
Your application will now be reviewed. If all requirements for an exchange stay at Bingen UAS are fulfilled, our Registrars' Office will send you a Letter of Admission with further information about payment, health insurance, orientation week and housing.
It is advisable for you to obtain an overview of the lectures and classes offered as early as possible. At the latest when applying, a Learning Agreement must be drawn up in coordination with the responsible persons at your home university, listing which lectures you would like to attend here in Bingen.
Generally, all classes are open to exchange students, including classes from other degree courses.
Unfortunately, Bingen UAS does not have a central lecture directory. Possible lectures can be found in the module guides of the individual degree courses. These guides can be found on the pages of the degree courses under “Dokumente”.
When selecting classes, please check whether they are offered in the semester of your stay at Bingen UAS. Most modules take place either in the summer or in the winter semester. You will find this information as well as detailed information on the number of ECTS, weekly semester hours, module contents and type of examination in the module guide.

Please notify your health insurance company that you wish to enroll at Bingen UAS and provide the following university sender number: H0001634. Your health insurance company will then send an appropriate notification.
The orientation week for exchange and double degree students (Erasmus, DHIK, IGCHE) will take place from 25th to 28th of March 2024. This is a mandatory event for all exchange and double degree students. Therefore, make sure you are here and able to participate as of March, 25th 2024.
