UCM Exchange students will need to take 12-15 credit hours while attending EBS. EBS follows the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). As a general observation, students should expect 2 ECTS may count towards 1 UCM credit, so to be full time, students will need to enroll in 24-30 ECTS. Students are strongly recommended to confirm their coursework at UCM before finalizing courses at EBS. Credits are awarded only when the course and all required examinations have been successfully completed. To learn more about ECTS as EBS, please visit their website
Coursework at EBS is divided up in "modules." Modules are groups of courses which are tied together and which can only be registered for as a whole. An overall module exam is taken at the end of the semester which includes elements from all courses within this module. However, only one overall mark is given. Few modules are structured in such a way that it's not possible to take the whole module during one semester. In such a case, students can take the course on its own - these courses are labeled as "stand-alone-courses". For each stand-alone-course a separate exam takes place.

EBS Housing Office assists international students in finding affordable, furnished and convenient accommodation near both campus sites. Since Housing is not an automatic part of your Study Agreement, finding a place to stay can be challenging. We help to overcome the language barrier and some real estate customs such as f.i. year-long contracts, renting out unfurnished flats or complicated rental fee structures. Nearly all our students rent in the surrounding towns and villages, renting private apartments or sharing flats. In terms of dormitories, there is very limited dorm space in Oestrich Winkel, whereas in Wiesbaden students can rent into three privately managed student dorms and a number of student apartment houses. From Wiesbaden, there is good public transport connectivity to the Oestrich campus sites. Business School exchange students and students taking part in our international full-time programs will be contacted by the Housing Office as soon as they are enrolled. EBS Law School exchange students start by contacting our law exchange coordinator to learn about their accommodation process. For information about renting a flat in Germany, please visit their website

By law, every student at a German university has to prove adequate health insurance which covers you against any illness or hospitalization. This is also applicable for all international students registered at EBS for exchange or for degree programmes. Emergency travel insurance plans are NOT considered sufficient cover. Since Spring 2014 it is mandatory for all exchange students staying at EBS for more than 1 semester to provide a German public health insurance plan (except you can provide a European Health Insurance Card). If you come from a non-EU Member country you will most likely need to purchase additional health cover for studying in Germany. Please keep in mind that emergency travel coverage is NOT sufficient to get a student residence permit. You need an insurance plan for STUDYING in Germany. The German immigration office is very strict which plans they accept for your visa/residence permit application. EBS will recommend certain insurance plans acceptable for visa and immigration matters when issuing your admission documents.
Non-EU nationals usually have the right to stay in Germany for 90 days. To extend this period, you have to apply for a residence permit after arrival. German Law requires all persons living in Germany to register their address within 10 days of moving to or within Germany. The process can be completed at the local registration office (Germ. "Einwohnermeldeamt") of your community. Please visit EBS' in-depth guide
for more information on German Visa and Immigration procedures.
