You can directly at the department's Examination Office. To do this, you must submit the following documents:

Reporting on Your Experiences

The semester abroad has likely afforded you with many opportunities to gather experience, inside-knowledge and memories. We would be very happy if you share some of these with us. By doing so, you are helping us to improve processes and to prepare future participants well for their Erasmus semester.

Furthermore, we find that the experience of our former Erasmus students is a great way to encourage and inspire others to spend a semester abroad. You can decide how public we make your information and which parts of the questionnaire you fill out.
