Studying abroad is an experience of great value. Facing a new environment, a new culture and a new organization means facing the world and consequently facing your own habits, culture and environment. This experience will enrich you, so embrace this new experience and open your mind to what it might teach you!

HU offers English-taught programmes in two semesters. Please see our language requirements. Click the buttons to view the course offer.


HU has partnerships with nearly 250 universities around the world. HU has been awarded by the Erasmus Charter for Higher Education 2014-2020 which offers students the possibility to participate in the Erasmus+ mobility programme within Europe. As an exchange student from a partner university you are able to spend a semester or a year at HU by waiving tuition fee. It is only possible to get accepted as an exchange student at a faculty or school if your home university has an agreement with that specific department. Please check with your home university if there is an exchange contract with HU or check our list of exchange partners. Please note that the list is subject to change.
