What happens after you have sent your documents to the University of Music and Dance through your international office?

The university coordinator checks the documents for compliance with the legal requirements and for completeness.

The documents are then passed on to the Erasmus departmental officer, who then selects suitable lecturers or, if a teacher wishes, they can contact the lecturers.

The checked documents will be returned to the coordinator by mid-June with the information as to whether the respective lecturer would like to accept the student in the class or not. This is a recommendation, not a decision.

The final decision lies with the department, which decides on admission in consultation with the coordinator and the prorector for international affairs.

Once you have received a place as an Erasmus student, you will receive a letter of admission and further information for your stay.

If you have any questions or problems, from registering to finding accommodation, the university's support office will be happy to assist you.

Please contact the supervisor at: betreuungsbuero(at)hfmt-koeln(dot)de.

The course catalog of the HfMT Cologne can be found here.

If you have any questions about your learning agreement, you can contact the Erasmus officer of a department directly.
