  • For your Certificate of Arrival: contact the IO-Erasmus office:

  • You are welcome to inquire about your changes to your Learning Agreement with the coordinator Dzubiella. 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/Prüfungsamt (Physics Examination Office) 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.
