Incoming students


  • The interdisciplinary EU-office of the University of Freiburg informs you about the Erasmus application 
  • The department of physics has one coordinator J.Prof. Dr. Harald Ita, who is available for questions and local support with your stay in Freiburg.


  • Please notice the application deadlines typically in the beginning of April

  • You need to provide evidence of sufficient knowledge of German (B1/B2) and English (B2) (levels as described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR))

  • You and the departmental coordinator of your home institution needs to compile a study programme (the so-called Learning Agreement). Meeting deadlines before the beginning of the semester, the Learning Agreement is to be submitted for signature to erasmus@physik.uni-freiburg.de.

  • You can find the course catalogue on the webpage (please adjust the year information in the link). By adapting the link you can view future and past course catalogues. Often not all courses are advertised at the time of your application and you will have to contact the lectures for more detailed information. The course catalogue of previous years will help to find the expected courses.

  • The application (welcome page of the online application) has to be sent directly to the EU Office: ulrich.eckelt@zv.uni-freiburg.deeuropa@zv.uni-freiburg.de


 During your stay

  • Upon request in person I am OK to share my cel-phone number, so you have an emergency contact in Freiburg.

  • You are welcome to discuss changes to your Learning Agreement with me. However, even more important will be to discuss this with your home institute, to make sure that the courses will be acknowledged appropriately. Once you know your changes, please send the changes to your Learning Agreement directly to the departmental coordinator of your home institution.

  • At the end of the semester you will have to keep your HISinOne records up-to-date and collect certificates ("Scheine") of your exam results if these do not appear in your HISinOne records. Then hand in a  complete list of the certificates to the erasmus coordinator/Pruefungsamt to obtain your Transcript of Records. You can submit the material by email. It is important to remind lectures well before the end of term that you are an Erasmus student and that you will need certificates. You will need to complete this before you leave Freiburg.

 After your stay:

  • Please stay in touch with us via e-mail until you have received your Transcript of Records.
