  • The application for a (double degree) exchange to the US is organized by the International Office. The central application deadline for this exchange is 2nd of November. The information about the application process can be found here.

Please note that, after successful selection by the department, students will have to hand in their documents at the partner university in order to complete the enrolment there.

  • Students can go abroad during the first or second year of the MA. We recommend students who have not studied at the University of Konstanz during their undergraduate period to choose the second option.
