The International Office looks after student exchanges within the framework of our about 90 university-wide partnerships, and will be happy to help you with all the organizational questions you may have regarding your study stay with us. On these pages we would like to give you some initial general information about your stay at the UoC and in Cologne. You will receive more detailed information from us when you have been officially accepted as an exchange student at the UoC.
