Welcome to the KIT Faculty of Civil Engineering, Geo and Environmental Sciences!
In the following we have compiled some information that you should consider when planning your study stay:
Since most of our lectures are held in German (especially in the Bachelor's program), German language skills at A2 level are required at the time of application, B1 level skills are recommended.
Students who want to attend courses in English - both in the Civil Engineeting or Water Science & Engineering Master Programs - or plan to write their Master's thesis in English have to prove English language skills on at least B2 level.
Even in such a case we require exchange students to
- either attend a German course in their country before their arrival at KIT (and present a certificate or proof by a private teacher)
- or attend a pre-semester German course at KIT
- or attend a German course during their studies at KIT and include it in the Learning Agreement (4 ECTS)
In general, the language certificates do not necessarily have to be from the Goethe Institute/TOEFL/IELTS. We also accept language certificates issued by your university or another language school.
Information about courses/lectures can be found in the KIT Course Catalog (please make sure to select the correct semester (WS or SS) in the scroll-down menu at the top right of the page).
English-language courses are best found in the module handbooks, please pay explicit attention to the designated course language.
Information about the course content, the examination regulation, the course structure as well as the ECTS credited can also be found in the Module Handbooks
You can change your Learning Agreement up to 5 weeks after the start of the lecture period. Please use the section 'During the Mobility' of your originally submitted Learning Agreement and have it signed by the coordinator at your home university and Prof. Eiff (coordinator KIT/Bauing). Please contact us via email at erasmus-civil∂bgu.kit.edu.
Important: You can only register online for the exams listed on your Learning Agreement.
The KIT lecture period in SS 2021 runs from 12.04.2021 - 24.07.2021.
After that (from 26.07.21) the exam period begins and you must register for each exam in the CAMPUS Student Portal BEFORE the exams.
The exam dates and registration deadlines will be announced in ILIAS.
If you are unable to take the regular exams or need special assistance, it is important that you clarify with the instructor well in advance how the exam is to be taken (oral or written, exact date).
The grade report is automatically generated by the system at the end of the semester and can be accessed via the CAMPUS Student Portal up to 6 months after exmatriculation.
