CONTACT WITH SUBJECT/FACULTY COORDINATORS

Please remember to contact your departmental coordinator after your arrival!

They will provide you with academic guidance and important information regarding your subject.

(Furthermore, most Erasmus students need to update their Learning Agreement.)

Your coordinator can also help you to choose the right courses and advise you on specific requirements of the institute.

OPENING A BANK ACCOUNT

Most banks in Hannover offer free current accounts (“Girokonto”) for students.

In Germany, you can pay by debit card in most shops and restaurants. Moreover, rent is usually paid by direct debit. It is therefore advisable to open a current account.

Please bring the following documents to open an account:

  • your passport
  • the registration form issued by the citizen centre
  • your student ID

If you would like to open a blocked account for visa purposes, please ask a bank employee for further information.

CHANGING THE LEARNING AGREEMENT

If you would like to update your Learning Agreement, you must do so within one month after the start of the lecture period.

Please fill in the updated information on page three and four (During the Mobility, Exceptional changes). Please enter all added or deleted components and have the document signed by your course coordinator at Leibniz University Hannover, as well as by the coordinator at your home institution. It is sufficient to send a scanned copy of the updated Learning Agreement to your home institution.

Please send the final Learning Agreement with all signatures via email to
Anne Höch (anne.hoech@zuv.uni-hannover.de ) or submit a copy in person (International Office, room 012).
