Depends on the study program: please see description of the study program on our website.
For programs in English: Level B2 in English
You will also find a handbook of modules under each course. Here you can find out in which semester the modules are offered. Please check if the desired study program is offered at Kleve campus or Kamp-Lintfort campus!
Exchange Students will be enrolled for one study program. You are able to take other modules within the same Faculty, depending on your previous education and the possibilities offered by our Faculty’s study plan for the given semester.
However, please note: If you select courses from different study courses or different semesters (e.g. semester 2 and 4), this might lead to clashes in your time table and/ or clashes in the examination period, as the faculties usually can only assure that examinations within one semester are not overlapping. Please consider this in your planning.
Bachelor degree students: For the winter semester only modules from se- mesters 1, 3, and 5 and for the summer semester only modules from semesters 2, 4, and 6 can be chosen from the module catalogue.
Master degree students: Please check on the website of the university whether the program you are interested in starts in the winter semester and/or the summer semester. Then see in the module description which modules are offered in the semester you will be here.
It is only possible to take whole modules and not individual courses within a module (many of the modules consist of two courses).
Our winter semester (usually End September to Beginning February) is referred to on the learning agreement as Autumn; our Summer Semester (usually End March/Beginning April – Mid/End July) is referred to on the learning agreement as Spring.
