How to become an exchange student at the WiSo Faculty

Exchange students from universities that have a partnership with the WiSo Faculty can be nominated for their study abroad programme directly through their home university's exchange coordinators. After successful nomination on our WiSo Exchange Platform (WEX) and after the official nomination deadline has passed, students will receive a welcome email from the ZIB WiSo and a separate email with their personal log-in data for WEX. They will then be asked to complete the necessary steps to receive their admission to the University of Cologne, as described below.

The WiSo Faculty does not accept freemovers, i.e. students from universities without an existing partnership with the WiSo Faculty. Students who are interested in completing their full studies in Cologne are kindly asked to get in touch with the WiSo Student Service.
