Before your departure from Lüneburg

1. Confirmation of departure

All Erasmus students must submit an official confirmation of their exact departure date to their home institution. Please make sure to obtain this confirmation in person from the International Office before your departure. A belated issue by e-mail is not possible.

2. Checkout with the local authories

Please inform the International Office (studyabroad@uni.leuphana.de) about your exact date of departure, so we can give notice to the Registration Office and the Foreigners' Registration Office of Lüneburg accordingly. If you leave Germany without giving proper notice, serious difficulties may arise when you apply once again for a visa or wish to reenter Germany at a later stage.

3. Evaluation

In order to improve our service for international exchange students, we kindly ask you to complete an online questionnaire before you leave Lüneburg. Many thanks!
