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. If you need it, please send the document via e-mail, so we can sign it for you.


Learning Agreement

Once you've selected the courses you would like to attend, you'll have to fill in the provisional "Learning Agreement". This document has to be signed by you, your home university and the ZIB at the Faculty of Human Sciences. The document shows, which courses you are likely to attend at the University of Cologne. You will get the needed form at your home university's ERASMUS office.

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


Transcript of Records

Close to the end of your stay we will send you a form called "Data for your Transcript". You have to fill in your personal dates and the courses you attended. On the basis of this document, we will provide you with your Transcript of Records.


Confirmation Letter

After/ at the end of your stay you can request the Confirmation Letter via e-mail. This document is to certify that you have attended your stay.
