General Information

Information for exchange students

General information about the exchange semester at HM Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences can be found here .

Modules and Workload

Your home university will tell you how many courses you have to attend and successfully complete. Usually you will have to earn 30 ECTS credits per semester. Modules, language of instruction and assessment method as well as workload and ECTS credits are listed in the Study Plan (please refer to option 1 below). The subjects are offered every semester of the regular BA program (we have winter and summer intakes). The additional "CIE-courses" might vary each semester.

Registration for courses and Learning Agreement

As a general rule, final course selection and registration for courses will take place in Munich (after your arrival!). You will need to fill in a "Learning Agreement during Studies" with all the changes a few weeks into the semester at HM.

Examination and ECTS

Almost all modules will be completed with a written examination at the end of the semester (about 2 weeks examination period at the end of the lecture time each semester). You need to register for the examinations and they will have to be passed in order to get the ECTS credits.
