information about your exchange period

Welcome to the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning

We welcome a very high number of international students every year. They study in an interdisciplinary and multicultural environment. The Faculty Office for International affairs will be happy to help you plan and organize your study exchange. Please find contact information in the box below.

How to find the course program and which courses can I enter in the Learning Agreement?

The faculty does not have a specific course program regarding the individual semesters (first, second or third semester, etc.).
We have a so-called vertical system. That means we mix students from different years and different study programs in the same course. Furthermore, in our faculty there are no recurring courses that are repeated every semester or year. The course program is created anew each semester. Therefore, at the time the Learning Agreements are created, it is unfortunately not yet possible to know exactly which courses will be offered in that semester.

There is a list of courses that are open to exchange students. However, this only contains the general module designations and, if applicable, the assignment to subject areas. The exact course content is then determined in each respective semester. The institutes develop a teaching topic and then assign it to one of the module containers on the list.

So when you write the learning agreement, please take modules according to your study program (Bachelor / Master) from the list that can be found at this link.

As an example, the current course program (Lehrangebot) can be found here.
