Do I need to study in the local language of the university?

Most partner universities will offer courses in English but some will offer courses in the local language. You may need to demonstrate proficiency in English in order to be accepted at the university.

Can I study language courses during my exchange?

Some host universities arrange language courses at different levels for exchange students. Check the International Relations Office webpage of the partner university for more information.
