Many paths lead to Hochschule Hannover - University of Applied Sciences and Arts as an exchange student. Whether you want to come to us for just one semester or for a longer stay, whether you come from ZUST and want to take part in the 2plus3 programme or whether you want to study at Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts as a freemover, here you will find all the programmes possible at the university.

We distinguish between exchange students who come to us through a partnership agreement or a special programme (2plus3, 3plus1, Labi3, ERASMUS+) and students who wish to study with us without a partnership between our university and their home university (freemovers).

ERASMUS

ERASMUS+ is the European Union program for education, youth and sport. The successful program offers a large variety of measures to support the internationalization of European higher education institutions in cooperation with partner institutions within the European Union as well as with non-European partners.

The following video offered by the National Agency DAAD provides a short introduction to the ERASMUS+ program: study abroad with ERASMUS+

The ERASMUS Charter of Higher Education (ECHE) is a requirement for the participation in the ERASMUS+ program. By applying for and signing the ECHE, the institution commits itself to following the principles and quality standards of the ERASMUS+ program. The Hochschule Hannover has been awarded the ECHE for the new program generation 2021 – 2027.

Please find the ECHE and the European Policy Statement here:

European Policy Statement (EPS)

The Hochschule Hannover - University of Applied Sciences and Arts encourages and supports incoming student mobility within the frame of the ERASMUS+ scheme. In case you should be interested in an ERASMUS+ exchange to our institution, please contact our incoming student coordinator.

Freemover

Students who study at a university abroad with which Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts does not have a partnership programme and who would like to come to us for a semester abroad are called "freemovers". They usually organise their stay abroad on their own and have to think about and plan a lot in advance.

Freemovers are not nominated by their university, but apply directly to Hannover University of Applied Sciences and Arts. If you are interested in spending a semester abroad with us as a freemover, please write us an email at hsh-incoming(at)hs-hannover.de
