How to register for lectures (Vorlesungen, VO) and exams

Lectures (VO)

Regular attendance of lectures is not mandatory.

Lecture exams take place at the end of the semester. You must register separately for every exam!

    • Registration for lectures of the winter semester 2020 opens 01/09/2020 and closes on 30.09.2021.
    • Open the course page in u:find and click on "Register/Deregister for this course".
    • You will be forwarded to the u:space login page. After logging in with your u:account user ID and password you can complete the registration process.


As soon as the date of an examination is set, you will find it on the lecture page in u:find.

  • Registration (exam)
    • Click on a date to check the registration deadlines.
    • Then click on "Register/Deregister for this exam" (this link is visible only while registrations for the exam are open!) and you will be forwarded to the u:space login page.


If you get an error message while trying to register for an exam, send an e-mail to the mobility coordinator during the registration period.

The e-mail must be sent from the same e-mail address you used when you registered in Mobility Online and must contain:

  • your student ID number (Matrikelnummer)
  • title and number of the lecture.
  • if you wish to register for an exam: the exact date of the exam

Please keep in mind that the mobility coordinator can help you only as long as registrations are open.

How to register for courses with continuous assessment

Courses such as Exercises (Übungen, UE), Introductory Seminars (Proseminare, PS), seminars (Seminare, SE) and lectures with exercise units (Vorlesung mit Übung, VU) are courses with continuous assessment.

Performance is assessed through class participation, written assignments, presentations, midterm and/or final tests. Regular attendance is mandatory.

Students are required to register for courses with continuous assessment before the semester starts.

The registration periods are in September (winter semester courses) and February (summer semester courses).

Please check this webpage regularly for updates about course registration deadlines for the winter semester 2020.


After the first allocation of places the mobility coordinator will send you a dcoument confirming your status as an incoming exchange student.

If you are still on the waiting list ("auf Warteliste") after the second allocation of places or if you did not register at all, you still have a chance to get a spot in the courses. Go to the first session of the course(s) you wish to attend and show the document to the course instructor.

  • If you are already on the waiting list, you can be registered directly by the course instructor.
  • If you are not on the waiting list, the course instructor will have to contact the StudienServiceCenter.

In both cases we cannot guarantee that you will be accepted in a course until you get confirmation from the instructor!
