How to apply: non-degree students

International students who come to Leipzig for one or two semesters either on an Erasmus exchange or as exchange students from our other partner universities abroad are called non-degree students, or 'Teilstudenten', at HTWK Leipzig. 'Teilstudenten' because they only complete part of their studies here, rather than study for a full degree. 

To apply for admission as a non-degree student, please submit with the following documents:

  • Application for admission to non-degree studies for international students of partner universities (PDF)
  • Learning agreement - programme of study
  • Transcript of records of all courses and exams completed at home university and copy of Bachelor Diploma (Master students only)
  • Proof of German/English language skills: Please submit a copy of a recognised language certificate and/or the HTWK Leipzig Language Certificate (PDF) completed by a language instructor at your home university. If you wish to attend courses taught in German, HTWK Leipzig requires German proficiency of at least level c which is roughly equivalent to B1/B2 levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. If you wish to attend courses taught in English, HTWK Leipzig requires English proficiency on a comparable level. We strongly recommend that you take German language lessons before arrival, as general structures and university life function largely in German.  
  • Proof of health insurance coverage: Students from EU countries please submit a copy of their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC); students from non-EU countries are required to contract health insurance immediately upon their arrival in Leipzig.
  • Registration form for the introduction course 'Deutsche Sprache und Landeskunde' (PDF)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • one passport-size photograph (35mm x 45mm); no scan, please!
