Course list with ECTS

Accreditation of student records from abroad

Studying abroad raises the question of which of the achievements provided in Germany are recognized at your home university. Therefore, it is necessary to check with your Erasmus coordinator before sending the application to the ZIB Med about which achievements can be recognized. These must then be entered in the "Learning Agreement".

The ECTS system is intended to facilitate the accreditation of learning achievements at a partner university in the home country. It is based on the quantitative rather than qualitative transfer of credit points for particular units of instruction.

Course Catalogue

You will find the course catalogue here.

Every "Querschnittsbereich" (Q1-Q14) contains 3 additional "Kompetenzfelder" (additional interdisciplinary subjects with lectures, exams and in some cases practical trainings), please see list.
