As a guest student you can attend lectures at the University of Erfurt. Guest students are not subject to age restrictions, special admission requirements (e.g. university entrance qualification or vocational training), professional status, a specific place of residence or other personal characteristics. Refugees are cordially invited to this programme.
What does guest student status mean?
You will be enrolled with the status of "guest student" and will receive a guest student card (not a student card). You take part in lectures and sit in courses together with the students. You can make contacts and receive impulses for later studies. As a guest student, however, you are not entitled to obtain credits. It is not possible to take examinations.
How do I become a guest student?
You can apply for guest student status at the beginning of each semester.
The courses of the summer semester run from 04.04. to 08.07.2022.
To become a guest student, please contact the International Office for advice on the course choice. You choose lectures from the university's range of courses that correspond to your personal interests. You can find an overview of these in the course catalogue.
As a rule, most courses are held in German, only some courses are held in English. (The course catalogue indicates the language of instruction).
You fill in the selected lectures or courses on the application for guest student status and submit it to the International Office together with a copy of your residence permit (in person, by post or by email). The guest student fees of 50 € per semester will be waived for refugees.
A few days later, your guest student card will be sent to your postal address. Show the card in the selected lectures on request. You can also use it to register at the university library.
Lecture period of the winter semester: October-February.
Lecture period of the summer semester: April-July.
