Arrival Information and First Steps
The completed and signed documents (Application Form, Accomodation Form, Transcript of Records, Learning Agreement or Training Agreement) are necessary before you can be accepted by the Westfälische Hochschule as an exchange student for one or two semesters. Please note that your subject and course choice has to be approved by the sending institution. Without the signature of the contact person and an official stamp of the sending institution the subject choice form (Learning Agreement) will not be processed.
