Course registration

Registration is not a prerequisite for attending a lecture. In principle, you can attend any lecture without prior registration. Exceptions to this are working groups (Arbeitsgemeinschaften) and events with a limited number of participants for which the lecturer requires registration. In this case, registration usually takes place via the respective chair.

However, we generally recommend that you register for all lectures you wish to attend via KLIPS 2.0. You can find instructions on how to register for courses via KLIPS 2.0 on the website of the KLIPS 2.0-Support.

Information on the application periods can be found here. After the first application period, you will be on the waiting list and after the second application period you will directly see if your registration was successful. Please do not worry in case you are on the waiting list. The faculty usually has more capacity than students wanting to attend the lectures. You do not need to use the first application period, applying during the second application period will be sufficient.

If it happens that the registration does not work right away, please first make sure that your s-mail-account is working (e.g. webmail login) and that the password is correct.

If you are still unable to register during the application periods, please contact the ZIB Jura or KLIPS Support, stating your matriculation number and your degree programme. In this case, the allocation will be done manually for you.
