Applications to spend a semester at one of THI’s international partner universities have to be submitted online.

Please read the data privacy statement of Mobility Online (currently only available in German).

Click here for the online application in Mobility Online.

Please be sure to observe the application deadlines mentioned above and the following steps necessary for a complete application. This is initially the application deadline at the THI, not the application deadline at the partner university! You will receive the application information at the partner university after you have accepted the assigned study place and have been nominated by us at the partner university.

Follow the instructions on the online form. To complete your application, you need to register on Mobility Online after you have submitted the application, upload a current grade sheet and the certificate of enrolment for the current semester. You can find both forms in PRIMUSS. If you are in your first semester and have not yet taken any exams at the THI, you must upload a copy of your A-levels certificate showing your average grade; if you are a Master's student, please upload a copy of your Bachelor's certificate. Your application is only complete once you have done this!

Once the application deadline has passed, places at the partner universities are assigned in accordance with the cooperation contracts and quota agreements for each faculty. If there is a surplus of applicants for individual partner universities, places are assigned based on faculty quotas as well as on academic/school grades to date, and your academic progress.

There is no entitlement to a (fee-waiver) place at any particular partner university.

If you have not been allocated to a place at any of your selected universities and there are still free spots at other partner universities, you will be invited by the IO to take part in a selection procedure for the remaining vacancies. IO will contact you via email regarding this matter.

We reserve the right to make changes to the application and selection procedure.

Summary of the necessary steps for a complete application:

  • Complete the online application form
  • Register on Mobility Online
  • Upload grade sheet or university entrance certificate and enrolment certificate
