Important Documents

Certificate of Arrival

Some Universities want you to hand in a Certificate of Arrival which states that you have arrived in Cologne in due time. We can easily sign this document for you, if you need it.


Learning Agreement

Once you selected the courses you want to attend, you'll have to fill in the provisional "Learning Agreement". This document has to be signed by bothyour home university and the ZIB at the Faculty of Human Sciences.

The document shows, which courses youare likely to attend at the University of Cologne. You will get the needed form in your home university ERASMUS-office.

Once you have arrived in Cologne, you will be able to change the Learning Agreement if some courses turn out to be better suited.

Please note: The course catalogue will be online about two or three months before the beginning of the semester.

If you need your Learning Agreement before that date, you can get a first overview about courses by checking the current course catalogue:
