What are you planning to do with the cat when you leave?

You can apply all you want, but there is very little chance of getting it.
New students (and as an exchange student you are a newbie) start with a shared apartment often with 2 or 3 others.
Only after a couple of years they qualify for a single apartment.

Put it to streets where it won't get food, don't have shelter etc. or euthanize... by the way former is offence punishable with fine (in worst cases up to two years of jail).
edit. go to pet some cats here or volunteer to work there.

For example if an animal needs a short-term placement. Then you are really doing the opposite of putting an animal out to the street, you are helping the animals that are already in need.
Another thing you could do to get animal company is offer to take other peoples' dogs out for walks, most people would be happy to get help in tiring out their dog once in a while.
