Learning Agreements

The University of Koblenz' ERASMUS code is "D Koblenz02". In the field "Department", enter "FB4: Computer Science".

If you are enrolled in an economics study programme, enter "041 (Business and administration)" in "Field of Education". If you are enrolled in a computer science programme, use "061 (Information and Communication Technologies)" instead.

We do not participate in the Online Learning Agreement platform. Hence, we cannot sign you learning agreements there.

Instead, please send your learning agreement as a pdf file to the ERASMUS departmental coordinator for computer science, Dr. Ulrich Wechselberger.

He will also happily answer any of your academic questions.

Course Registration and Credit Points

You should register for any courses via KLIPS. Please refer to the section above, "Course List and Module Descriptions" for a list of available courses.

In case a lecturer rejects your registration, please contact him or her and explain that you are a visiting student. Many lecturers take in visiting students even the course is fully booked.

In order to receive credit points for your studies, you must pass the examinations to each course. Exams are scheduled after the end of the lecture period.

You shoud register for examinations separately using KLIPS. If this is not possible, please contact the corresponding lecturer. Usually we will then organise your examination separately.

You will receive your final transcript of records after finalising your exams by your contact person in the International Relations Office.
