How to participate

Application process

IS-Link strives to offer students a structured application process.
According to preliminary considerations the application process will be roughly structured into the following five phases:

1. Advance Planning

In order to be able to seamlessly integrate studies abroad into their domestic programme students are asked early — ideally at the beginning of their Master’s or PhD programme — to determine their motivation and objectives, to choose universities they would like to visit, and to select assignments they would feel confident undertaking abroad.

2. Application

In order to simplify the application process, to improve student allocation, and to accomplish accurate selection decisions students will have to apply at their home university. According to the suitability of a student and available exchange contingents the universities pre-select incoming applications and transfer them to their partner organisations.

3. Admission and Enrolment

Intended host universities decide upon the admittance of a student and guide all those admitted through the enrolment process.

4. Travel Preparation

Home and host universities provide succesful applicants with essential travel preparation support, including assistance with visa applications, health insurance coverage, and accommodation.

5. On-site Support

During their stay, host universities offer their guest students on-site support with academic and administrative matters and provide specific services for foreign students such as language courses or local study trips.



On-Site Support

The IS:link network offers students and scholars helpful services — at their home university as well as at foreign host universities.

Basic services

IS:link provides students and scholars with specific support services that are available at all IS:link member universities:

  • IS:link coordinators at home universities support students in planning ahead for a stay abroad that integrates a study abroad seamlessly with their home study programme.
  • Home and host universities guide students and scholars through a defined application process (See Information for Students)
  • Assistance with housing, and enrollment (for further details see the individual university presentations within the Participating Schools section)

In order to find out who is responsible for IS:link at your university or who you may contact at a foreign university, please have a look at the IS:link Team page. Do not hesitate do get into contact with your local IS:link coordinators, if you are interested in studying abroad!

Additional services

In addition to the IS:link assistance services most participating institutions offer further services for exchange students, including the following:

  • Local language courses
  • Counselling to avoid bureaucratic obstacles.
  • Study trips to distinctive cultural and tourist attractions
  • Presentations on distinctively cultural, legal, economic features of a region (e. g. “How to do business in …”, “Typical intercultural misunderstandings”)
  • Meetings (e. g. regulars tables) for experiencing exchange in an unaffected setting
  • Festivals and parties

Please refer to the individual presentations of the universities for more information and do not hesitate to contact your local coordinator.
