Mobility Advisors per Field of Study ("Departmental Coordinators")

Every subject with a SEMP-exchange agreement must provide a designated departmental coordinator. This person is often also responsible for student exchanges with non-European universities (Faculty-Agreements). Departmental coordinators also function as the liason between students, lecturers and Global Student Experience.


The primary functions of departmental coordinators are the nomination as well as the assessment of students' application documents on Mobility Online. Please note that all activities related to student mobility are processed on this database.
