ERASMUS/ Exchange Students Application

All exchange students have to apply online at  JGU - a "nomination" is not sufficient.

The online application is valid for ALL exchange-students (Bachelor, Master, PhD). To apply, you have to create an account with the online portal JOGU-StINe, the "Study Information Network of Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz". You find some useful help for the online application under "related links".

If you have technical problems with the online application, please contact:

The deadline for ALL exchange applications is:

  • winter term: Mid/end of May - July 15
  • summer term: Mid/end of November - January 15.

To receive an official letter of acceptance of JGU you need to apply online:

  1. Create an account at the online platform JOGUStINE
  2. Receive password automatically via e-mail
  3. Log onto the online application system
  4. Answer all mandatory questions
  5. Send the application online

Please note:
The application for studies does not include an application for a room in the dormitories. Please apply for a room in the dormitories directly at the Team Housing International of the Studierendenwerk Mainz.

Letter of acceptance

If you fulfill all requirements, your application will usually be accepted.

Your letter of acceptance will be uploaded in JOGU-StINe, where you can download and print it. This letter is verified and officially vald. It is the official confirmation that you can enrol as exchange student at JGU.

The letter of acceptance is uploaded from mid-July to mid-September for the winter term, and from mid-January to mid-March for the summer term respectively.

Important: You need to download your letter of admission as long as your applicant's account is still active. Maybe it is a good idea to save it on an external hard drive/USB stick. You will need your letter of admission for your enrolment.


In your letter of acceptance, you will find the exact date when to enrol in person at JGU.

The enrolment can only take place here in Mainz, normally within the InfoDays for exchange students, but never bevor the InfoDays.

If you cannot make the date specified in your letter of acceptance, please send us an e-mail.

Please keep in mind that an admission as exchange student at JGU does not automatically include a room in the students’ dormitories.

Therefore, if you want to rent a room in a students' dormitory, please apply at the Service International Students - SIS of the Studierendenwerk Mainz.
