Course Registration and Current Courses at the Department of Psychology

The registration procedures for courses at the Psychology Department (and most other departments of the university) are undergoing a number of changes right now. The only reliable source for information regarding course registration at the Department of Psychology for exchange students is the website you are currently reading. 

For the summer semester , the deadline for course registration is **05 March, 1PM**. To register for any seminar or tutorial at the Department of Psychology in the summer semester, incoming exchange students have to use the registration form. Direct registration in Marvin is currently not possbile for exchange students. Only if we receive the form by the this deadline, you can be treated preferentially during the allocation of seminar and tutorial places. Afterwards, you can only attend courses that still have vacancies. 

The course registration dates and procedures for courses taught at other departments vary. Please check the department's websites, contact the department's exchange coordinaor or the lecturer of the courses you are interested in and ask them if and how you can join their course.

Courses taught in English at the Psychology Department

Summer Semester 2020

The final course catalog for the summer semester 2020 will be published in Marvin on the 02 March.

Here are the premilary information we have on the courses:

Courses starting with a "B-" are part of the Bachelor's degree, whilst courses starting with "M-" are part of the Master's degree. You may attend all of these courses, but this helps to estimate the level of difficulty and you will need the lecturer's permission if you attend a course outside your own degree.

Winter Semester 2019/2020:  

Please note that these courses are outdated. We cannot gurantee that they will be taught again in the upcoming Summer Semester 2020. However, they might be useful for incoming students to create a Learning Agreement beforehand (if needed).

Courses starting with a "B-" are part of the Bachelor's degree, whilst courses starting with "M-" are part of the Master's degree. You may attend all of these courses, but this helps to estimate the level of difficulty and you will need the lecturer's permission if you attend a course outside your own degree.

Other courses, departments and semester

Exchange students may attend courses of the psychology modules listed in the Study Guide's Appendix, if they are offered in a given semester. There, you can also find more details on the available modules (semester, duration, common language of instruction, recommended prior knowledge). Detailed descriptions of the content are on the following pages:

You might also want to have a look which other courses are offered at the university. As an international exchange student, you have the possibility to choose modules that are not part of the Psychology degrees as long as the responsible lecturer (and the international coordinator of your home university) agrees. 

Detailed instructions how to search for courses in upcoming and previous semesters can be found in Section 5.3 of the Study Guide. (The Psychology course catalogue for the upcoming winter semester will be provided online late in August and for the upcoming summer semester late in March.)
