Course selection

General information

Your home university will tell you how many courses you have to attend and successfully complete.

Usually you will have to earn 30 ECTS credits per semester.

Modules and subjects, language of instruction and assessment method as well as workload and ECTS credits are listed in the Study Plan (please refer to option 1 below).

The subjects are offered every semester of the regular BA program (we have winter and summer intakes). (Note: the CIE might vary each semester.)

Almost all modules will be completed with a written examination at the end of the semester (about 2 weeks examination period at the end of the lecture time each semester).

You need to register for the examinations and they will have to be passed in order to get the ECTS credits.

At Hochschule München exchange students will be enrolled in semester 5. However, students could mix and choose courses from the 3 options below depending on the time table!

The exact dates, days and times for every single course will vary from semester to semester. The time table will be published on the web just before the start of the lecture period.

As a general rule, final course selection and registration for courses will take place in Munich (after your arrival!). You will need to fill in a "Learning Agreement during Studies" with all the changes a few weeks into the semester at MUAS.

The International Office of the Department of Tourism will have a welcome session for exchange students (including sufficient time for assisting students with selection of courses and putting together the time table.).
