Enrollment for Exchange Students
You have already taken the first step with your registration as an exchange student in Mobility Online. What happens next? We have compiled the most important information on how to get here and how to start studying at TH Köln. If you have any questions, please contact the Department of International Affairs.
! Important information about digital enrollment !
Your enrollment at TH Köln will be completely digital. This means that you do not have to come to TH Köln to receive your documents, but they will be made available via Mobility Online. This requires you to log in to Mobility Online regularly. If you have questions regarding the enrollment or if you face any problems with Mobility Online, don't hesitate to contact us via phone or email.
Selected – what's next?
After successful registration, verification of your application by TH Köln and all necessary steps on your part, you can generate and print your admission letter in Mobility Online. For the winter semester, admission letters are usually available in mid-June, for the summer semester in mid-December.
In the meantime, we urge you to please make arrangements for accommodation. TH Köln cannot provide accommodation for you. We recommend that you apply immediately for a room at the Kölner Studierendenwerk (KSTW) online.
We strongly recommend that you start looking for other housing options at the same time, since an application to KSTW is no guarantee for a room.
During the enrollment phase, the Department of International Affairs offers digital information sessions for newly arrived international exchange students. There you will receive information about your first steps at TH Köln and in the city. The staff is also available to answer your individual questions. Participation in one of the infosessions is mandatory.
