For any additional queries you may have, please contact the student exchange coordinators at OTH Regensburg incoming-international(at)oth-regensburg.de.
German language requirements: To follow lectures in German language, we require a B2 German language level for application. If you only choose English taught lectures, we do recommend a B1 German language level, but we do not require it for application.
