Institut für Politikwissenschaft und Soziologie


IPS accepts all Erasmus/Programme students/freemovers to classes, regardless of the agreements your mobility is based on. As online registration may be not accessible as your mobility may not be based on Political Science/Sociology, please sign up for courses by contacting directly the respective teaching person and/or the Departmental Coordinator.

It is our good practice to meet all requirements from Erasmus or your home university as good as we can. Exams may be adjusted to individual requirements within the responsibility of each individual teaching person. Credits for modules are usually 5 ECTS, adjustments are possible (e.g. Italy).

Each semester, we ensure that you can register for a set of courses taught in English:

In addition to our courses taught in English, which mostly focus on exchange students, you can choose further lectures from the Vorlesungsverzeichnis.

You don´t have to register online at our department for courses. If you intend to participate you should just show up at the first meeting.

The University of Würzburg also offers Intercultural Studies / English-Language Programs for exchange students. The Application Deadline for Summer Semester is March and for the Winter Semester is August. Here you will find more information about it.

In addition, the University of Würzburg’s Language Centre (ZFS), located on the Hubland campus, offers German language classes as well. For current course and application information, go here.
