Welcome on the Site for incoming students

Living in Kiel


The International Center of the University offers dormitory rooms for exchange students. The rent of the various dormitories is currently 140,00 Euro to 220,00 Euro per month, the renting periods are currently at least six month and the renting contracts have to be signed for this period. In order to apply for a room in the dormitories please submit the form for application before the deadline expires and send it via mail or fax to the International Center (the form is available on their homepage). The application deadlines are June 15 th for the winter term and January 15 th for the summer term. It is very difficult to find rooms on the private housing market and also often much more expensive than the dormitories.




Most of the courses in the bachelor program are offered in German language. The economics master programs Economics, Quantitative Economics, Environmental and Resource Economics and Quantitative Finance, are exclusively taught in English. Courses offered in Englisch language for bachelor students :Current list of courses in English

But nevertheless it is appropriate to visit German Language Courses, because some courses are only held in German. Further information about learning German you get at the International Center.




All the application forms for the Erasmus+ Program you get at the International Center. If you have any questions not answered by the International Center website the staff will happily assist you. Just write them an E-Mail to erasmus-incomings[at]
