Overview of partner universities

In the following overview you will find all partner universities of the three schools of Pforzheim University. For detailed information, for example, semester dates or courses, please search for the corresponding university in the partner database.



Partner universities are universities with which Pforzheim University has a written agreement for an exchange. It is agreed that a certain number of students from one university can study abroad at the other university and vice versa.

In most countries, unlike in Germany, studying abroad is not free of charge and sometimes involves high tuition fees.
With this agreement, tuition fees are waived for Pforzheim students at these universities. In addition, Pforzheim University supports you in the organisation of your studies abroad and acts as your intermediary to the partner university.

You can filter our database according to your degree programme and all suitable exchange opportunities will appear.

We have only been using the Mobility Online database since the summer semester of 2023. As soon as the students return from abroad, the first reports of their experiences will be available in the database.
