Learning Agreement

Before your foreign exchange begins you should list all of your intended courses including ECTS points on the Learning Agreement. Our faculties will check your Learning Agreement and may make some changes. By signing the Learning Agreement the faculty confirms acceptance of your study plan. Please note: The Learning Agreement is not an official course registration. Course registration is usually completed separately. For this reason it is not possible to guarantee that you can participate in the selected courses. Please contact your Departmental Coordinator as soon as possible to find out how you should register for your courses!

Important: Since you most likely need to apply for a visa, we strongly recommend you complete the application procedure as early and quickly as possible, so that you can receive our admission letter in due time.
