How to apply

Application deadlines

The deadline for applications to go on exchanges through AU's agreements depends on when you are going but also what you are studying. There are two application deadlines a year but please be aware that not all students can apply by both deadlines.

  • 1 December for the following academic year - e.g. you need to apply 1st December 2017 for exchange spots in the autumn semester 2018 and the spring semester 2019
  • 15 September following spring - e.g. you can apply for exchange spots in the spring semester 2019 at the deadline 15th September 2018

If possible, we recommend that all applicants apply by the 1 December deadline. By the 1 December deadline, you can apply for an exchange either for one semester (autumn or spring) or for a full academic year.

By the 15 September deadline, you can apply for an exchange in the following spring. This application round is primarily for newly admitted master students who are applying for exchange during their second semester.

 

 

Allocation criteria

The study places are allocated on the basis of the various criteria, among others:

  • average mark at the time of the application deadline
    • if you are a postgraduate student who have not yet received any marks at AU, it is the average mark of your bachelor degree 
  • number of years of study
  • special requirements under the exchange agreement, e.g. a motivation or a statement, will always appear from the database AU GO
