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 a graduate exchange at RSM are expected to have good academic standing at their home institution, and should have at least completed the 3 years of business 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 minimum score 91+ (minimum 22 on all sub scores); IELTS minimum score 6.5 (minimum 6.5 on all sub scores); Level B2.2 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). 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.
Please note that the English language requirements for participation in the International Consultancy Project are more strict:
TOEFL 95+ (internet-based), with a minimum of 23 in all subscores
IELTS 6.5, with a minimum of 6.5 in all subscores.
To study at RSM as a graduate 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). At the end of October, you will receive the course registration form that you will need to fill in and return before the deadline mentioned in the information.
After the application deadline and if you have met the academic and English language requirements, the official letter of acceptance will be sent to your home university by email. The programme manager will provide you with all the relevant information about your exchange.
