Course suggestions summer semester

In this section we have prepared a selection of courses for you. It is structured in subjectareas, but all courses can also be combined individually as you like. We have set some of those courses as recommended, because for those we can guarantee to the instruction language would be in English only and they are organised by the Institute for International Cooperation and Study Programs: 

If you click on the course title you will be directed to the university's course catalogue. All courses which are recommended here show you a more detailed description (requirements, content, learning outcomes, assessment, etc.) in English language. German speaking students can choose all courses of the university which gives a much greater variety of course. The online programme (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) is unfortunately quite complicated to access and understand, so in this case it is best if you contact us and tell us the areas you are interested in or need to study. We will work out suggestions for you.  

Important: do not try to register for courses in the ph-online system on your own. We will do that for you according to your learning agreement (together with you after your arrival!)
