Courses to study and how to find them

You are free to choose courses from different study fields and study levels. The access to some courses might be restricted due to a low course capacity (e.g. courses in Biological Oceanography). We recommend a language competence of B1.

Recommendations for Exchange Students and Sample Learning Agreements (This is not a complete courses catalogue!)

Lecture Directory, courses for ERASMUS/exchange students

Complete Lecture Directory

UnivIS is our main Lecture Directory. Unfortuntately sometimes it is updated shortly before the start of the semester. In this case use the previous semester as reference.

Modul handbooks (Modulhandbuch)

Some study programmes already have a complete module handbook ready. The you find detailed course descriptions.

Another approach to find courses when univIS is not yet updated or you can't find the number of credits

If courses are not uploaded yet or you can't find the information about the number of credits please look in the study structure of your study programme. First you choose a subject. You open "Modulübersicht" and if necessary you choose "Studienfach 1". Study programmes consist of Moduls.Those moduls include a flexible number of teaching units (e.g. lecture, seminar, exercise, excursion, internship).

Example from Political ScienceIn the column "im...Semester" you find out in which semester the course takes place: Uneven numbers indicate that the course takes place in the summer term, even numbers tell you that course takes place in the winter semester).

In the example you see that the module "Einführung in die Sozialwissenschaften" consists of two lectures (VL) and one exercise (Ü). All courses take place in the winter semester. For the lectures you receive 4 Credits (LP) each and for the excercise 2 credits.
