Other Departments’ Classes
Please note that the information offered on this page is valid for all classes offered by the Department of English and American Studies only (i.e. all classes in English and American cultural studies, linguistics, and literary studies. While enrollment for other departments’ classes may be similar it will almost certainly also differ in some aspects.
Before you may attend a class, you must enroll in it on StudOn via Campo. For further information on how to navigate Campo, please see these guides for students. For further information on how to find classes on Campo or StudOn and how to register for them, please also see this guide (in German). To find out which modules/classes to enroll in at which point during your course of study, please refer to the information offered for your degree program on this website.
For some courses—most Grundseminare, Aufbauseminare, Lektüreseminare, Examensseminare, and Textanalyseseminare, as well as some other classes—we rely on StudOn’s balancing mechanism (“kombinierte Anmeldung”) for an even distribution of students. Because of that you cannot sign up directly for these classes; instead, you must select which of the offered classes you would prefer to take. Admission will be on a rolling basis: about every two weeks, all students signed up for these classes will be distributed among them according to their preferences. Class registration will then continue for the remaining seats until Friday evening before the first week of classes. After this final round of kombinierte Anmeldung, students who still need to register for these courses may sign up for them directly where seats are still available.
If not announced otherwise, enrollment for all classes starts on March 1, 7 pm for the summer term and on September 1, 7 pm for the winter term. Deadline for enrollment is always the Saturday after the first week of classes, 10 pm. Joining a class after this deadline is only possible, if the lecturer of the class registers you for it. Therefore, if you wish to sign up for a class after the enrollment period, you must contact the course lecturer directly. If you have decided not to attend a class after all, please disenroll from that class to free up spaces for other students.
