Registering for courses, the “Belegliste” and Transcript of Records

As an incoming student, you cannot register online for courses and exams on the website Marvin. Instead, you register for courses by e-mailing the instructor for each individual course, asking to be registered for the class, and then adding them to your course list or "learning agreement before mobility".
