Note: Our Bachelor program consists of 3 years (6 semesters) and a total of 180 credits. Our Master program includes 2 years (4 semesters) and a total of 120 credits. Since your study program may have different structures, we urgently ask you to obtain the following rules:

Depending on the total credit points at the beginning of each semester, you can choose courses accordingly from the Bachelor or the Master program. If you have earned less than 160 credits by the start of your exchange semester, please choose courses exclusively from the Bachelor program. If you have earned already between 160 and 180 credits, in your own interest please also choose courses from the Bachelor program in your first semester here. In your second semester at our faculty you can choose courses from both, the Bachelor and the Master-Program. As well as you can do so, if you have already earned more than 180 credits.

Study Structure and Modules


Application Requirements

A minimum Level of B1-B2 (German language) is required for a stay within the Erasmus Plus Program.

You will need these language skills if you want to achieve 30 ECTS-credits.


RWTH Aachen University does not offer beginner courses for Erasmus students. However, there is an intensive course in September as well as courses during the semester. If you want to participate in the EURO language course in September 2013, you must check "yes" in the appropriate box in the application form. Precondition for this course is a certificate for 200 hours of German or a A2 Certificate. The participation fee is100 Euros.

If the language skills are insufficient for a participation in the intensive course, the language center of the RWTH Aachen University offers a GERMAN LANGUAGE SUMMER COURSE in August. The language courses are offered at levels ranging from B1 to C1. There are no offered courses for participants without any previous knowledge of German.

ATTENTION: without the knowledge of the German language, it is hardly possible to attend lectures, seminars or design projects. Instructions are in German, English skills are an advantage.
