Service infrastructure for exchange students
If you have questions about studying at the University of Bamberg, theInternational Officeis your first contact. There you will get all the necessary information about application, dormitories and financing of your study abroad. In addition, the International Office organizes the Tandem Program, which provides exchange students with personal tutors who will answer your questions and will help you to solve problems and to settle in quickly in Bamberg and at the university.
The Language Centreoffers special German courses for foreign students. The level ranges from A1 to Business German. The "Language learning for two" programme focuses on cultural exchange and there is also a theatre workshop for international students.
Exchange students at the Faculty Social Sciences, Economics, and Business Administration
Students who come to Bamberg for one or two semesters within an exchange programme and who do not pursue a degree at the university can choose from almost all courses. You are not bound by any study or examination regulations. You are free to focus on meaningful courses for your studies at your home university or on your personal interests.
Most of the courses are open to the public, but the number of participants may be limited and certain admission requirements must be met. It is possible that visiting students will not be able to take exams in all courses. For a first overview and especially an English description of the content of most courses, please refer to the ECTS-Guide(1.4 MB, 102 pages) of the faculty.
Detailed information about the single courses and the registration procedure
In the module manuals, you will find all information on the individual courses and the exams: Language, # ECTS, form of examination, competences taught and further literature. You will find information on the organization of the courses on the websites of the chairs and in UnivIS.
Chairs at SoWi
Chairs are the smallest organizational unit at academic level. A professor is the head of the chair. The chairs have a relatively narrowly defined content profile in research and teaching. Several chairs together form subject groups or institutes and offer degrees jointly, as a subject group or institute, or increasingly across subjects. If you are looking for courses in a specific subject area, we advise you to start your search at the corresponding subject group and to get an overview of the different topics offered by the chairs of the subject group. You will find detailed information on the courses offered on the pages of the chairs in the study section.

is an online information system you can access at univis.uni-bamberg.de. It is a central data forum of the university: from room directory to contact data of employees to the complete course catalogue, you will find the information you are looking for. Some chairs also provide information on their courses directly viaUnivIS.
Furthermore, you can create your timetable via the online-Tool in UnivIS.
An important first step is the registration for exams and courses. It is important to understand that these are two different registrations. While course registration is not always required, exams usually require prior registration. Therefore, it may happen that you have to register separately for the course as well as the exam for one subject of a chair, while you can attend another subject of the same chair without registering for the course.
It is, therefore, important that you find out how to register for each subject. You will find information on the websites of the chairs, in UnivIS or, in case of centrally organized exams, on the website of the examination office:
- Examination Dates
- Registration for centrally organised examinations
- Registration for decentralised examinations
- Registration for state examinations
- Examination rooms
- Reviewing examination results
