Visiting international students

Each semester the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences welcomes students from our partner universities. We're always happy to watch how they lose a bit of their heart to Hamburg while they're here.

If you are a student at one of our partner universities and you would like to come to HAW Hamburg, please contact the International Office at your home university as a first step. Unfortunately, it is not possible for students from universities that do not have a cooperation agreement with HAW Hamburg to complete a visiting semester with us.

You can study in German or English in our departments. To do so, you need to have the necessary language skills.
