Learning Agreement

What is the Learning Agreement?

The Learning AgreementAdobe is an agreement of the study plan between the ERASMUS students, the home university and the ERASMUS coordinators of the University of Heidelberg. The Learning AgreementAdobe is compiled independently by the students according to the requirements of the home university.

After choosing the lectures you would like to attend, fill out the document according to the completition instructions below and send it to the ERASMUS coordinator for review and signature. Depending on the requirements of your home university, this may be necessary before or at the start of your stay.

 

Tip: Take a look at the diagram showing the steps and documents within the framework of the ERASMUS stay.

 

Keep in mind: The Learning Agreement should be submitted to the ERASMUS coordinator by mid-December (winter semester) or mid-June (summer semester) at the latest.

You can arrange your timetable independently according to the requirements of your home university. In general, you can attend all courses at the Law Faculty (exception: Practical preparation course).
