Incoming Students

This is the right section for you if you want to come to the School of Social Sciences at the University of Mannheim as an exchange student. You are considered an exchange student if you stay at the University of Mannheim for one or two semesters and then return to your home university to finish your studies. Since you don't obtain a degree from our university you are classified as a non-degree-seeking student.

Mannheim is located in the centre of the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region: at the intersection of the three federal states of Baden-Württemberg, Hessen and Rhineland-Palatinate, the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region is characterized by a unique blend of innovative enterprises, outstanding scientific research and a culturally diverse lifestyle.

The International Office offers a range of general information for Incoming Exchange Students.
