Central Information & Advice


Application and Immatriculation: Further places to go:

Acceptance of Study Periods, Credits and Exams

Consultation Evidence:
In the case of a change of program after the 3rd semester, you will need proof of academic advising: Please contact the general academic advising office for this (see above).

Classification Notice:
For entry into a higher subject semester in the case of a change of university and degree program, you will also need a placement notification for enrollment. For the B.Sc. degree program in mathematics or for the subject mathematics in the polyvalent two-major program, send your documents (performance overview or similar) to the Examination Office Mathematics.

Recognition of achievements:
After immatriculation following a change of university and course of study, the recognition of achievements can take place. The chairwoman of the examination committee is responsible for this.
Prof. Dr. Angelika Rohde
Chairwoman of the examination committees for mathematics

Credits to be made up in the Master of Education degree program:
If you transfer to the University of Freiburg for the Master of Education program, you may have to make up credits from your Bachelor's program (as the Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs has set requirements for the "complete package" Bachelor+Master); Conversely, achievements from your Bachelor's program may be recognized in your Master's program.

EUCOR – The european Campus

Students of the University of Freiburg have the opportunity to attend courses at the five member universities of Eucor – without paying additional fees. The members of the trinational network include the universities of:

  • Basel
  • Freiburg
  • Haute-Alsace (Mulhouse/Colmar)
  • Strasbourg
  • and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT)
The point of cross-border studies is, in particular, that you can attend complementary courses not offered at your own university at another Eucor university. You can benefit from the ECTS credits attained during this mobility as part of your curriculum (please get in touch with the exchange representative of the Mathematical Institute or with the coordinator of the degree programmes). At the same time, you can also gain experience abroad and learn new languages. The universities support their students’ mobility by covering their travel costs.

Students from Eucor – The European Campus benefit from the same rights of use for services in the five member universities as in their home university (online services, canteens, student residences, reduced rates for public transport, reimbursements for travel expenses, mobility grants, library loans, etc.). For more information, please see the Eucor website of the International Office.
