Course Selection & Learning Agreement

All ERASMUS and CIVIS students must complete a Learning Agreement and get approval by the School of Business & Economics and their partner university. It contains the course programme at the partner university during the stay abroad.

Learning Agreement - Before the start of the stay abroad
The Learning Agreement before the start of the stay abroad is used to plan the study programme at the partner university. It can be created as an Online Learning Agreement (OLA) or manually in the Mobility Online Portal and is only valid if it has been signed by all parties (student, Departmental Erasmus Coordinator at the home university, Departmental Erasmus Coordinator at the partner university).

Please use the following information for the Learning Agreement for the School of Business & Economics:

Erasmus Code of the University of Tübingen:

Erasmus Code of the partner University:

Learning Agreement Changes - During your stay abroad
If there are any changes to your study programme during your stay abroad, please get them approved by us and your partner university and then submit an updated Learning Agreement. Please use the "Changes" section in the Learning Agreement for this purpose and do not issue a new Learning Agreement. The updated Learning Agreement must be uploaded to the Mobility Online Portal no later than five weeks after arrival at your partner university.

Recognition of Academic Achievements from Abroad

Please ensure that your academic achievements from abroad are recognised in good time. In the Bachelor programmes, a total of 36 ECTS credits can be recognised for the economics & business modules and 9 ECTS credits in the language and key qualifications module. A total of 30 ECTS credits can be recognised in the Master programmes. Crediting is carried out by the respective departments. As the recognition usually has to be carried out at several departments in succession and some time is required for processing, you should allow sufficient time and start the process as early as possible.

The following steps must be observed:

  1. Yellow routing slip: The Examination Office is responsible for the final recognition and entry of courses in your transcript of records. All courses must be entered on a yellow routing slip, which you can obtain from the service office of the Examination Office.
  2. On the respective homepages of the chairs you will usually find a specific list of which documents are required for credit transfer. This may vary from chair to chair.
  3. The grade conversion table and the information sheet for the recognition of foreign academic achievements can be found on the homepage of the Examination Office.
  4. For credit transfer in the Elective Studies specialisation area or "Schlüsselqualifikationen" (for Bachelor students) or Free Elective Studies (for Master students), please send an email with transcript/proof of achievement to anerkennungspam Further information can be found on the website of the Examinations Office.

Please note that proof of recognition of your achievements from the partner university at the University of Tübingen must be uploaded to the Mobility Online portal by 31 May (for stays abroad in the winter semester) or 30 September (for stays abroad in the summer semester).

What our students say about their exchange

I have many wonderful memories of my stay abroad in Reading. I met great people, made friends that went beyond the Erasmus exchange and developed academically. The University of Reading focuses on interactivity in teaching, which was an interesting difference to the lectures in Tübingen. I am more than grateful that I was able to gain this experience and can only recommend a semester abroad!

Ellen Edel, University of Reading

I can only recommend an Erasmus semester during your studies, because it is a great experience. I chose Tallinn because of its phenomenal location and the good reputation of the highly innovative TalTech. What I enjoyed most about my stay in Estonia were the great trips that were offered to Erasmus students and the intercultural exchange with my fellow students, who came to Tallinn from all over the world.

Carla Schwehr, TalTech Tallinn

During my Erasmus exchange, I was able to expand my intercultural skills and gain an insight into teaching abroad. I chose Krakow to discover my Polish roots in a different way and to experience the cultural diversity of the city. The courses offered were completely different to those I am familiar with from and different teaching methods were used. Krakow is a beautiful and historic city that is very much underestimated.

Sarah Paziak, Jagiellonian Uni. Krakow

I decided to study abroad as an Erasmus student because I really wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to develop both professionally and personally. Aix-en-Provence was a natural choice as Tübingen's partner city and because of its fantastic location near the Cote d'Azur. I made lots of new friends from all over the world during my semester abroad and especially enjoyed trying out the many fantastic cafés in the city centre of Aix with them.

Christoph Klemmer, Uni. Aix-Marseille
