Gener­al Information

re-enrol­ment and regis­ter­ing in moduls

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.

Library

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.

Office for Study Affairs and Examin­a­tion Office

In the Office for Study Affairs in the Linnéstraße (room 223, 222 and 216) 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.

examin­a­tion board

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.

study abroad​

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).
