Module Booking and Information on Examinations

Choosing Modules

Do you want to know which modules (courses) you can attend at our Faculty? In principle, mobility students may enroll in all modules that our Faculty offers at Bachelor's and Master's level. There is one exception to this: Swiss mobility students at Bachelor's level may take modules from the Master of Law study programs only upon request.

Booking the chosen Modules through the Internal Module Booking Tool

Do you want to know how to book and cancel modules you have chosen using the Faculty's internal module booking tool?

To register for an examination, you must book, or if required cancel, a module before the deadline set by the mobility office using the internal module booking tool.

Do not book any modules using the official (university's) module booking tool!

All bookings and cancellations of bookings must be made using the link provided by the mobility office (on the right-hand side of this website).

The booking tool is made available at the first day of the lecture period and is closed after six weeks. Please note the respective booking and cancellation deadlines (below). Do not forget to book the modules for which you wish to sit the examination and cancel those modules you do not wish to take before this deadline expires.

Mobility Examinations

Mobility examinations are special examinations for exchange students only. It is up to the lecturers to decide whether they are willing to offer mobility examinations instead of regular examinations

Lecturers are not obligated to offer mobility examinations.

Lecturers can decide whether mobility examinations are to be offered for non-native mobility students only. 

Mobility examinations usually take place in the last two weeks or the lecture period and are mostly offered as oral examinations. Oral mobility examinations take at least 15 minutes. A protocol is kept during the examination.
For additional information on mobility examinations, please consult the information sheet for a Mobility Course of Studies at the Faculty of Law.
