The re-enrolment takes place every semester by paying the semester fee. This means that you are a student of the University of Leipzig for another semester. The re-enrolment period for the winter semester is from 1 June to 31 July and for the summer semester from 1 January to 28/29 February. After you have successfully re-enrolment, you will have to have your student ID card re-validated. Registering in the modules always starts shortly before the lecture starts and takes place in the first weeks of the lecture period. It takes place via the AlmaWeb. If you have problems registering modules or miss the deadlines, please contact the Student Office as soon as possible.
The most important branch for you of the Leipzig University Library (UBL) is located in Liebigstraße. But also in the Institute for Theoretical Physics (ITP) in Brüderstraße is a branch office with some papers about theoretical and mathematical physics.
The rooms of the UBL are often used by students for concentrated work in a quiet atmosphere. The campus library invites students to do this around the clock. At night, access is via the night entrance in the direction of the Gewandhaus. The Biblioteca Albertina and its large reading rooms in Beethovenstraße are particularly attractive from an architectural point of view.
In the Office for Study Affairs in the Linnéstraße (room 215) you can get information about almost all questions concerning your study planning. If you have problems with the module registration or would like to cancel a module, you are just as right here as for the registration of project, bachelor and master theses. If you are unable to participate in exercises or examinations due to illness, you must also submit your health insurance voucher here.
The Examination Office is located in the same room and is responsible for all examinations and grades. Here you will get a proof of your achievements so far (Transcript of Records) and your graduation certificates.
The examination board is relevant for you if you want to take a second repeat examination, if you want to have modules and degrees from other universities credited to you or if you have problems with the recognition of modules for the elective area (e.g. language courses). All this has to be applied for at the examination board. You submit an application to the examination board (PA) either by e-mail or in printed form together with all necessary documents and send it to the Studienbüro. The PA meets once a month. We will also be happy to help you if you have any questions regarding the PA.
A study abroad is usually a great personal enrichment, as you get to know people from many other nations and cultures, broaden your language skills, experience a different educational system and generally broaden your horizons. In the Bachelor’s programme, the fourth and fifth semesters are the most suitable, in the Master’s programme the first two semesters or the complete Master’s programme. But of course you can also study abroad outside these times. But to ensure that your studies abroad are a success and do not lead to unnecessary delays in your studies, it is important to pay attention to a few things in advance. For example, it is essential that you conclude a learning agreement with your partner university and clarify in advance with the examination board that the modules you want to study abroad will also be credited for your studies.
It would be a bit out of place to inform about everything about studying abroad. Competent contacts are the Akademisches Auslandsamt (AAA), the Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst (DAAD) and the ERASMUS coordinator of our faculty (currently Dr. Jochen Zahn).
