Dear Partners, Colleagues and Friends,
Warm greetings from HdM/Stuttgart Media University! We hope this email finds you well.
The highlights of an exchange semester in Stuttgart are certainly the small groups and the personal contact to our lecturers, the state-of-the-art equipment, the beautiful surroundings of our city, the cultural activities in Stuttgart (including our beer festival), the possibility of making friends from all over the world, our outstanding one-to-one buddy program, and all the social events organised by our Erasmus Student Network (ESN). Due to the current COVID-19 developments none of this might be possible for exchange students to experience during the coming winter semester.
Despite the fact that we are not yet able to guarantee physical mobility at HdM, we decided to now open our online application portal for winter semester 2020/2021 exchange studies. We are committed to facilitate an international experience for your students and to support them in the best way we can.
Those of your students, who cannot postpone their mobility to summer semester 2021 or winter semester 2021/2022, but wish to spend an exchange semester at our university in the winter semester 2020/2021 or plan to come to Stuttgart for the full academic year 2020/2021, are welcome to apply until 31 May 2020. Please advise them that they need to be prepared for travel restrictions, quarantine regulations and possibly also online teaching arrangements. Students might also face extra costs for travel and housing, in case the situation changes due to COVID-19 developments.
We have decided to only offer the October intake without a German Intensive Language Course in September this year.
Please ensure that you nominate your student/s by using this short survey (one survey per nominated student):https://forms.gle/
All nominations should comply with the number of students and fields of study stated in our partnership agreement. If you already nominated your students via email, please also submit this survey.
After having received your nominations, and starting later this week, we will contact your students directly and send them a link to our online application portal.
The list of the required support documents can be found on our website
