Do you have questions about your application as a non-degree individual (freemover)? We have already answered the most frequently asked questions. Have a look!

Your application process

No. The application procedure is entirely online. Simply upload the required documents as described on our website.

If you have technical problems with the C@MPUS application platform, please send an e-mail to C@MPUS support.

There is no fixed course program for freemovers at the University of Stuttgart. You can freely choose your courses, but should do so according to the requirements of your home university. Please discuss with your student advisor at home what is expected of you.

You can choose your courses in consultation with your academic supervisor in Stuttgart, regardless of the course or level (Bachelor or Master). Once you have chosen your courses, please contact the responsible lecturer directly and ask for admission to the course. Your academic supervisor can also assist you with this.

For restricted-entry courses – i.e. where the number of places is limited or only advanced students are accepted – you will find the details in the online course catalog on C@MPUS.
Please discuss all academic issues concerning your courses and examinations with your academic supervisor. The International Office is not in the position to offer academic study counseling.

All courses offered at the University of Stuttgart are listed on the online platform C@MPUS. C@MPUS provides you with course descriptions including ECTS points, language of instruction course schedule and information if you have to sign up for the course. To find the courses you can choose the faculty page on the left side and click on “course offer” or “courses”.

The final course catalog with schedule and locations will be published in February/March for the following summer semester and in August/September for the following winter semester. You can always have a look at the course catalog from the previous year, because similar courses are offered every year.

These examinations and certificates are accepted as proof of German language proficiency.

We strongly recommend entering Germany with a minimum language level of A2 according to the European Reference Frame. Having basic skills of the language is necessary in everyday life. However, if your academic supervisor at the University of Stuttgart agrees to supervise you without or with little German skills your application will be considered. Prerequisite: a written confirmation of your academic supervisor.

If you are interested in English-speaking courses, please consider our Master’s Programs taught in English (select 'Master' in the drop down menu 'Degree' and select 'English' in the drop down menu 'Language'). The courses offered by these programs are listed in the online course catalog C@MPUS. We strongly recommend that freemovers introduce themselves in person to the professors at the beginning of a class and ask if there is space available in the course.
