Students may apply to live in one of four residence halls.
As is common in Europe, the residence halls are independent of the university, requiring a separate application process. While exchange students receive some preference, placement in one of the halls cannot be guaranteed. Flensburg's International Office can provide guidance in securing private accommodation, as well.
Students will take the equivalent of up to 15, but no less than 12, KSU credits per semester. Please note that English-language courses are only available in the Faculty of Business Studies: Business Courses in English.pdf
