Even if you are not currently receiving BAföG, you may be eligible for funding.

Recognition of Credits

The “Studierendenbüro” is responsible for the transfer of credits for English and American Studies students. In most cases, this transfer is completed according to the Erasmus+ framework. We advise students to coordinate the selection of courses with the designated staff in advance in order to facilitate the process.

  • The application documents must be submitted by the above-mentioned deadline as a PDF-document to this e-mail address: auslandskontakte-anglistik(at)

Selection Criteria

The student’s performance (an average grade of at least 2.5) and motivation determine the selection of candidates. An English and American Studies Institute committee will evaluate the applications received. They will consider the overall application: the grades, the academic intention expressed in the letter, the transcript, and the CV should be consistent with each other and provide a coherent image of the candidate. After reviewing the applications, each student will be invited to an interview with the committee. At this stage, the overall presentation and language skills, and the academic motivation will be determining.
