Exchange Students

Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt enjoys a good reputation among students of its partner universities from all over the world. Thus, a steadily growing number of international students decide to spend one or two exchange semesters at THI. We meet this increasing demand with a continuous extension of lectures taught in English at all faculties.

The International Office provides exchange students with all necessary information and support during all phases of their stay in Ingolstadt:
