Exchange Students

Welcome to the DHBW Mosbach!

The DHBW Mosbach welcomes about 100 exchange students to its two campuses every year and we would be very happy to see you here as well.

The DHBW Mosbach is one of nine locations of the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University in the federal state of Baden-Wuerttemberg in southwestern Germany. The DHBW Mosbach has two campuses: one in the town of Mosbach and one in Bad Mergentheim. With their charming city centers with traditional German architecture, their location amidst hilly woods and castles and their many cultural events, both towns attract hundreds of visitors throughout the year.

Reasons for choosing the DHBW Mosbach as an exchange destination include:

  • Semester-programs in a tightly-knit group of students
  • Courses in English (or, if you prefer, in German)
  • Small classes
  • Dedicated support by International Office and German buddy
  • Safe, friendly and beautiful environment with easy access to the rest of Europe

On this page, you can find out more about the courses you can take during a semester at the DHBW Mosbach, about the application for an exchange semester as well as details about your life on one of our two campuses, accommodation, and other useful information regarding your stay in Germany.

More information about the DHBW Mosbach in general, including some pictures of the two campuses, can be found here.

If you are not enrolled at one of our partner universities worldwide, you can apply to come to DHBW Mosbach as a study abroad student (also called "freemover"). Please note that freemover students from outside the EU are subject to a tuition fee of 1,500 Euros per semester. Exchange students are excempt from the tuition fee. Freemover students can only be admitted to our International Programs after all applications from exchange students have been accepted.
