Welcome to DHBW Mosbach!

You want to study a semester abroad as an exchange student? Then you have come to the right place!

DHBW Mosbach has two campuses: one in the town of Mosbach and one in Bad Mergentheim. With their charming city centers with traditional German architecture, their location amidst hilly woods and castles and their many cultural events, both towns attract hundreds of visitors throughout the year.

The DHBW Mosbach welcomes about 100 exchange students to its two campuses every year and we would be very happy to see you here as well.

Really good reasons for choosing DHBW Mosbach as your exchange destination:

  • Semester-programs in a tightly-knit group of students and small classes
  • Courses in ready-made programs: English-taught programs (International Programs) or German language and culture classes (GLACIP)
  • Lots of fun excursions and events included in the programs
  • Dedicated support by International Office and German buddy
  • Safe, friendly and beautiful environment with easy access to the rest of Europe

Courses for Exchange Students

We offer courses for exchange students in ready-made programs all year around:

For students fulfilling the necessary prerequisites, it is possible to combine certain programs (depending on availability of placements). This way, you will create a six-month program with up to 60 ECTS!

Freemover students

If you are not enrolled at one of our partner universities worldwide, you can apply to come to DHBW Mosbach as a study abroad student (also called "freemover").

Please note that freemover students from outside the EU are subject to a tuition fee of 1,500 Euros per semester. Exchange students are exempt from the tuition fee. Freemover students can only be admitted to our International Programs after all applications from exchange students have been accepted.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Life on Campus

In Germany we have a saying: "Vorfreude ist die schönste Freude" - which means, loosely translated, that the greatest pleasure lies in the anticipation. Accordingly, we hope that all the information provided on this website will make you giddy with anticipation. We also hope to eliminate some of the question marks that you may still have regarding what life on one of the two campuses of the DHBW Mosbach will be like. Thus, you can find below some information on housing, integration at the DHBW Mosbach and a link to our Welcome Guide.

By the way, you can find more student testimonials on the websites of the respective International Program, here for the IPB and here for the IPE.

We hope that your exchange semester at the DHBW Mosbach will be simply unforgettable!
