Orientation Study Program at TU Hamburg: Applications are open until August 31st.

Application Procedure: necessary steps

1. Nominiation

Your home university nominates you by sending the nomination form to internationaloffice(at)tuhh(dot)de

The nomination deadlines at TUHH usually are 15.04 for winter semester stays and 15.10 for summer semester stays.

Please note that these dates may change. Check the homepage regularly for current updates!

2. Before the application

The TUHH international office will send you the exchange application link by Email and inform you about the upcoming procedure and dates.


3. Starting the application

To start your online exchange application, you need to follow the link you received from us by Email. It directs you to an online form, which is the first part of your exchange application.

Fill out this online form and click ‘send’ at the bottom. This will create an application for exchange studies in our database Mobility-Online.

NOTE: This application is still incomplete!

Mobility-Online will send you a confirmation email and asks you to create a user account in Mobility-Online.

4. During the application

Follow the link in this Email to register as a user in Mobility-Online.

You need to choose a user name, login and password. This will enable you to view and complete your still unfinished exchange student application.

Your entire exchange stay at TUHH will be managed through Mobility-Online. You’ll need to get back to your application/mobility workflow in Mobility-Online before, during, and after your stay at TUHH.

5. Complete the application

Complete your exchange application. The steps in the workflow are consecutive: they have to be filled out one after the other, and they are all obligatory.

Download information and forms from the workflow and upload filled out and signed forms to your exchange application workflow.

Note to ERASMUS students: We are about to switch to the OLA (Online Learning Agreement). For now, we are still using the PDF-paper-based Learning Agreement form.

Documents to down- and upload:
a.    Learning agreement form
b.    Transcript of records with previous and current work
c.    Language Certificate
d.    Motivation letter
e.    Facial picture
f.    TUHH exchange application form

6. Finishing the application

The last step in your application is the upload of a scan of the exchange application form. Your home university needs to sign this.
This last upload completes your exchange application and notifies the TUHH International Office.


7. The accommodation application

If you would like to apply for a room in the student's halls in Hamburg, please go the webpages of the Accommodation Office TUHH. You will find there all the necessary information on contacts and procedures. The accommodation office will advise you as well about the possibilities of finding private rooms and flats in Hamburg.
