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. For TOEIC test scores we require all four components. For the Listening and Reading part, the required minimum is 800 and for the Speaking and Writing part, the required minimum is 320. and have a minimum score of 800-850. 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). If the application for entry visa and/or residence permit is applicable to you, you will receive information on how to apply from the International Office.
Together with the Welcome e-mail, you will also receive a preliminary course offer overview. The course registration will open later and you will be informed on how and when to register in due time. It is, however, important to already look at the course offer and inform yourself at your home university which courses you are allowed to take during the exchange.
If you have met the academic and English language requirements, the official letter of acceptance will be sent to you via the online system.
Deadlines for application:
Fall term: May 15
Spring term: October 15
