Here you can find a list of courses offered at the Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Educational Sciences, Faculty of Law and Faculty of Social Sciences

Faculty of Arts

You should choose the majority of your courses from the degree programme (or the study track) that has the exchange agreement with your home institution. If you are applying based on a university-wide exchange programme, you should choose the majority of your courses from the degree programme (or the study track) which is closest to your educational background.

However, there are several degree programmes (e.g. Master's Programme in Russian Studies, Master's Programme in Linguistic Diversity and Digital Humanities and Master's Programme in Area and Cultural Studies) that offer courses that are open for all degree and exchange students. You can find a list of the courses in English suitable for all exchange students below.

Course descriptions for most courses can be found on the Course pages using the course code or name when searching. Please note that "suitable for exchange students" tab on the Course pages does not work for the Faculty of Arts. Please use the list below, instead.

Advanced Bachelor's level students are usually allowed to take Master's level courses, too. However, there may be some restrictions for certain degree programmes.

 

Please note that there are restrictions regarding course access as listed below.

We are experiencing a high demand for courses, and priority is given to exchange students enrolled in the Faculty of Educational Sciences. This means that if you are enrolled at another faculty, it may be difficult to fit on these courses. Please note that you also need to have sufficient prior academic background in the field of Education.

Bachelor's programmes / Master's programmes

The course offer is focused on advanced Bachelor courses. Master-level courses begin with the code EDUM. They are also open to bachelor students, unless otherwise noted.
