Choosing Courses

Erasmus students, who do not intend to take 100% of their courses in one department of LMU, must choose at least 50% of their course modules from the department with which their home university has an Erasmus bilateral agreement.

LMUexchange students must choose at least 50% of their course modules from one department only.

Erasmus and LMUexchange students should take the other 50% of their course modules in no more than two other departments (example: 50% of courses in the Department of German Philology, 25% of courses in the Department of History and 25% of courses in the Department of Politics).

Please note that if you have no previous knowledge and study experience in a subject area, you will solely be permitted to take introductory courses in this field.

If you are a bachelor student, you will, as a rule, not be permitted to take master courses (any exceptions to this rule will be discussed and decided by LMU).

The complete course catalogue is available here.  

Courses for the summer semester are online from the end of February.
The course catalogue for the winter semester is available from the end of July/ beginning of August.

Among the downloads below on this site you will find instructions on how to use the course catalogue and lists of courses taught in English for the current and previous semester.  

If you have to complete your learning agreement before these dates we advise you to select courses from previous semesters.  You can always make changes to your learning agreement after you have arrived at LMU and have signed up for courses.

The LMU academic calendar might be helpful.

Note that ECTS points are not listed in the course catalogue. You will find ECTS information on the faculty/department websites or you can ask the departmental exchange student coordinator.

There are different ways of enrolling for classes (i.e. emailing the lecturer, personally visiting them in their office hours, online enrollment). It is therefore important that you read the information on the relevant faculty websites or get in contact with your departmental coordinator to find out about enrollment procedures.

Some departments provide specific information for exchange students:
