Are there any disadvantages compared to Erasmus students regarding course selection, taking exams or the status as student in general?
Differences are in the application process, your application will be checked after our Partner Universities students' applications. The study process will be similar to Erasmus+ students, you will follow the general timetable and take exams with the other students. The information meant for you is the same as for other exchange students. The course offer is limited for Business, Economics and Cyber Security students.

EU Citizens don't need temporary residence permit. Students from third countries need a temporary residence permit or long term visa.
Is it necessary to translate the documents (currently italian and german)?
Yes, the documents have to be translated into English.
When I have graduated already and do not study anywhere, may I apply for free-mover status?
