Which courses are available in English?
For each course there is a course description available in English. However, many courses are only taught in German to date. The courses in English are highlighted (yellow background) on our “Courses“ sites and you can also find the necessary information within each course description in the section “Language of instruction“.
In which language do I have to take the exams?
Independent of the instruction language of a course there is the possibility to take the examination in English. This has to be organized with the particular lecturers directly.
What are the language requirements?
The Justus Liebig University has no special language requirements for exchange students. However, a level B1 in German is recommended.
How many credit points do I get for a course?
If you attend a course and pass it successfully, each course (lecture or seminar) is credited with 5 ECTS. In case that you find different information (e.g., 6 or 9 ECTS for one module), please ignore them, since these information are inappropriate for exchange students. In case that you need additional credit points for certain courses (as a requirement of your hometown university), these additional credit points and the corresponding work load can be discussed directly with the lecturers.
If a course is split into part A and B (A in the winter term and B in the summer term), am I allowed to sign in for only one part of the course?
Yes. You may either attend part A or B, whatever is available during your one semester exchange period.
How many courses should I attend during a one semester exchange?
The Department of Psychology does not have any requirements concerning a number of courses to be attended. Our recommendation is around 30 ECTS (ideally including a language course with 5 ECTS if desired), thus making a total of about six courses which represents the regular amount in the B.Sc. studies.
