Semester of Study

You are in your 3rd- 6th year of studies and would like to spend one or two semesters with us attending lectures, courses and seminars and, if necessary, supplement these with clinical internships? If so, please submit the following documents in order to apply:

  • Immunization Record (Deadlines: 5th April or 5th December)
  • German Language Certificate B1 (Deadlines: 5th April or 5th December)
  • Course Preferences (Deadlines: 15th July or 15th January)

Deadline: 5th April (for winter semester) or 5th December (for summer semester)

Once successfully nominated, you need to make sure you have all required vaccination documentation and lab reports necessary to the Immunization Record in time. The form “Immunization Record” is to be completed and signed by your family doctor or general practitioner. The document for data protection “Datenschutz, Widerruf und Schweigepflichtentbindung” has to be signed  by yourself. Both documents must be then sent to the Occupational Health (Betriebsärztlicher Dienst) of our university hospital before the respective deadline via or by post:

Universitätsklinikum Düsseldorf
Betriebsärztlicher Dienst
Moorenstr. 5
40225 Düsseldorf

Please note: Failure to provide the completed Immunization Record prior to the respective deadline may lead to a rejection. The tuberculosis vaccine cannot be substituted by a tuberculosis skin test! The Immunization Record contains health information considered confidential to you and the Occupational Health (Betriebsärztlicher Dienst), and so must be sent directly to Occupational Health (Betriebsärztlicher Dienst) and must not be sent to us to the Medical Faculty or the International Office of our university.

Deadline: 5th April (for winter semester) or 5th December (for summer semester)

Please also send your German language certificate B1 to us, the Office for International Affairs at the Medical Faculty via prior to the respective deadline. We strongly recommend that you obtain one of the following official German language certificates: www.testdaf.deGoethe-Zertifikat des Goethe Instituts, Deutsches Sprachdiplom der Kultusministerkonferenz or Telc, covering Speaking, Writing, Reading and Listening.
Should you submit a language certificate other than the aforementioned official certificates or should your certificate be older than two years, you will be invited to a telephone interview by us, through which your German language skills, especially oral skills, will be examined. Insufficiency in German language skills will lead to rejection!

Deadline: 15th July (for winter semester) or 15th January (for summer semester)

Please us your course preferences (Fächerwünsche) prior to the respective deadline first before filling in your Learning Agreement. Please read through carefully the course selection guide “Anleitung zur Kurswahl” first and then fill in the excel sheet for course preferences “ECTS-Punkte und Fächerwünsche”.

After completing the excel sheet “ECTS-Punkte und Fächerwünsche” please convert it to PDF format and send us the PDF file. Please do not type the courses in the e-mail body but rather use only the given form “ECTS-Punkte und Fächerwünsche” and the comments box in it.

Learning Agreement

The Learning Agreement is an important part of the Erasmus+ programme. It should include all the lectures, courses and seminars the student is expected to attend during the exchange. Once signed by all three parties (both universities and the Erasmus student) the Learning Agreement becomes valid.

Please make sure to e-mail us your course preferences (Fächerwünsche) in PDF format prior to the respective deadline: 15th July (for winter semester) or 15th January (for summer semester). After the deadline we will begin verifying your course request. You will be notified via e-mail whether your course choices are feasible or you need to do any changes.

Until 30th September (for winter semester) or 31st March (for summer semester)

Once you have received our e-mail confirming that your course request is feasible, you can start completing your Learning Agreement. You will receive the access data of the Online Learning Agreement or the template of the Learning Agreement in paper format from your home university. Please let your coordinator sign the Learning Agreement first.

Note: Please do not enter any internships (Famulaturen) in your Learning Agreement at this stage yet, as they will be organised after your arrival in Düsseldorf. Once the chosen clinics have confirmed the Famulaturen we will be able to add them to your Learning Agreement.

We will be able to sign your Learning Agreement as soon as having received the Learning Agreement signed by you and your coordinator. If you are using the Learning Agreement in paper format you will be able to pick up the original in person after your arrival in Düsseldorf.
