Please contact your home university to sort out any problems concerning the number of ECTS points you are required to attain.

ERASMUS students are required to fill out a Learning Agreement form for their home university. The Learning Agreement is a list of the modules (seminars, lectures, etc.) which you would like to attend at the University of Kassel.

  2. In the form, fill out the modules which you would like to study at the University of Kassel.
  3. The completed form must be signed by the ERASMUS coordinators of your home University.
    • Departmental Coordinator (of your department)

Send the completed form to the University of Kassel. There it must be signed by the ERASMUS coordinators, too:

You can either send the documents via post, email or upload it with your application. We will forward the documents to the Departmental Coordinator who is responsible for your application. Who is in charge depends on your field of study and country of origin.
