Number of courses
Normally it is required by your home university to take courses with an ECTS equivalent of 30 points each semester.
Courses will mainly be taught in German, though some courses may be offered in English. Therefore solid language skills at least at the level of B1 are required to be able to follow the courses. Exams can in accord with the university teacher eventually be written either in English or in German.
The courses you will take need to be agreed by the ERASMUS coordinator of your home university and by the local ERASMUS coordinator. To get the agreement by the local ERASMUS coordinator you can either send your Learning Agreement via e-mail or you get it signed while the office hours.
Certification of passed exams
For every passed course you will get a certification (called "Schein") which states the mark and the number of ECTS points you reached for the course. Before the exam you need to hand a blanco version of the Schein form filled with your name and the title of the course to the teacher of the course. If you have to write an essay to pass the exam it may take longer until the Schein is ready. In that case ask the teacher of the course to send the Schein to the local ERASMUS coordinator, if it will not be finished before your departure.
Transcript of Records
To get your transcript of records you need to bring all your "Scheine" to the local ERASMUS coordinator who will set up the transcript. If not all your Scheine should be finished before your departure you can ask the teacher of the course to send the Schein to the local ERASMUS coordinator and the complete version of the transcript will be send later.
