Students studying at one of our partner schools are welcome to apply for an exchange at RSM and are to be nominated through their home institution.
Nominated students will receive a so-called Welcome E-mail which will inform you on further application procedures, about one month before the application deadline.
Students applying for an undergraduate exchange at RSM are expected to have good academic standing at their home institution, and should have at least completed the first year of undergraduate studies.
Part of your home institution’s selection process is an evaluation of your proficiency in English. We trust our exchange partner schools in nominating students who will not have difficulties in class due to the language. As a guideline, the following definitions of language levels are applicable: TOEFL iBT score of 90+, an IELTS minimum score 6.5; Level B2.2 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) or written proof of a comparable level of English. Non-native English speakers whose existing study programmes are completely taught in English are exempted though proof needs to be provided. In all official statements, the language level needs to be mentioned.
To study at RSM as an undergraduate exchange student, you must first be nominated by your home institution. Please contact your university's study abroad adviser/coordinator for more information on requirements and selection procedures.
Deadlines to be nominated are:
Fall term: May 1
Spring term: October 1
In the Welcome E-mail you will receive from our programme manager, you will find further information about the online application procedures. Subsequently, you need to complete the online application and upload requested additional documents (a copy/scan of your recent academic transcript, proof of your proficiency in English). Other additional documents include a completed Student ID card application form and completed checklist for entry visa and/or residence permit (both can be downloaded via a link provided after submitting the online application).
Another required document is the completed course registration form that is also attached to the Welcome E-mail. You need to fill in the form and have it signed for approval by your home university. The deadline to send in the signed form is mentioned in the information.
If you have met the academic and English language requirements, the official letter of acceptance will be sent by email to your home university. The programme manager will provide you with all the relevant information about your exchange.
Deadlines for application:
Fall term: May 15
Spring term: October 15
