How to apply

Students who want to apply for an exchange program at TU/e need to apply directly to the Erasmus and ECTS coordinator of the department where they want to study. This also applies to free movers. A list of the Erasmus and ECTS coordinators can be found here.

The following items are needed for the application:

  • The TU/e application form (see documents for exchange students below), including Annex I to apply for housing, and Annex II
    • NB Annex II can only be used by EER students. Non EER students have to submit an original IELTS test (minimum score of 6.5 on average and at least a 6.0 per section) or TOEFL test (minimum score 90 internet based with at least 21 per section) with the application documents;
  • Transcript of records from their home university detailing all the study components undertaken to date at the home university;
  • A copy of your passport;
  • A completed learning agreement (see downloads).

The application form needs to be signed by you and the ECTS coordinator of your home institution. Exchange programs normally take place within the framework of a bilateral agreement. Students, who apply as free movers and are accepted by the department, need to pay tuition fee to TU/e for the period they are studying at TU/e.

Unless specified otherwise by the department, the application deadline for applications for the first semester (starting September) is 1 May, the application deadline for applications for the second semester (starting January/February) is 1 October. The department concerned will inform you of their admission decision.

After completion of your period of study abroad at TU/e, your TU/e department will provide you with a transcript of records containing the study program components you followed at the TU/e, the number of credits and the grades.
