Exchange & Short-Term Programs

Students at our partner institutions (see list) in various countries around the world have the opportunity to study with us for a semester or a full academic year. Interested students must consult their university’s KIT exchange coordinator and be approved by their home institution before applying for a KIT exchange. Partner institution and KIT coordinators will facilitate applicants’ study arrangements and be available for consultation during the exchange.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic in Japan, KIT will not accept exchange students unless the border control measures (e.g. to wait for 14 days at a designated location, to refrain from using public transportation from the airport) are lifted 2 months prior to the start of study at KIT.
