Choosing courses

  • Erasmus+ students must take at least 50% of their courses in the subject area named in the Erasmus+ exchange agreement.
  • LMUexchange students must take at least 50% of their courses in a single subject area.
  • Erasmus+ and LMUexchange students can take the other 50% of their courses in no more than two further subject areas (example: 50% of courses in German Philology, 25% of courses in History and 25% in Political Science).
  • If you have no previous knowledge in a given subject area, you may only attend introductory courses in that subject area.
  • If you are in a bachelor's program, you are generally not allowed to take master's courses (LMU will discuss exceptions to this rule internally).

You can find a list of all the courses offered at LMU at LSF (you do not need to be logged in for this), including seminars and lectures taught in English. Courses for the summer semester are listed from the end of February/beginning of March, and courses for the winter semester from the end of July/beginning of August.

If the course catalog is not available by the application deadline, please refer to the courses from the previous year's course catalog. It is still possible to update your Learning Agreement after you arrive in Munich. ECTS credit transfer points are not disclosed in the online course catalog. You can find this information on the various department websites or you can get it from the program representatives.
