The offical course catalogue "LSF-Vorlesungsverzeichnis" is usually available 2-3 months before the semester starts. You can find all offered lectures at LMU there. You do not need to login to look through it. The courses are sorted by program and course type. There is a guide how to work with LSF.
For a list of courses taught in English and a quick introduction into choosing courses please visit the following website: Choosing Courses at LMU as an Erasmus Student or LMUexchange Student
Additional Information on Courses in Physics
Please see the chapter Vorlesungen (German) for a list of current courses that offer online important information and material. A detailed description on courses is given in the module guide ("Modulhandbuch"; just available in German):
Study curricula as well as general information about the various programs at LMU can be found under Degree Programs.
Enrolling for Classes
In general you do not have to register to courses in physics. In some exceptional cases a registration via LSF is required for exercise groups or seminars. In case registration is required, you see a button "belegen/anmelden" for the specific course in LSF. In general, all organisational informations are clarified in the first lecture of the semester.
Bachelor and Master thesis projects
In general it is possible for your to do a bachelor or master thesis project at the Faculty of Physics. Note that we do not offer or place thesis projects. To find a topic or thesis project therefore contact any of the research group members at the Faculty directly. An overview on the researh foci is available on our Research website.
In order to have a Learning Agreement with a bachelor or master thesis project approved at LMU, please include the concrete topic and the name of the supervisor at LMU. If this information is not included, your Learning Agreement can regretably not be approved.
Submitting a learning agreement is mandatory for Erasmus+ students. We ask other exchange students to fill out such an agreement as well, since it helps to identify study objectives.
Erasmus+ students will receive their Learning Agreement from their home university. All other exchange students may download the Learning Agreement from the respective LMU website. There you will also find more information about the learning agreement.
In this agreement, you should state the courses you would like to attend while studying at LMU. If the course catalogue is not yet available at the time you need to fill out the agreement, we advise you to choose from the courses offered the previous year or semester.
For signing the Learning Agreement at the Faculty of Physics as receiving institution, contact the Erasmus+ Departmental Coordinator.
