A wide range of subjects can be studied at LUE, either as subject matter or in combination with subject-teaching methodology.
Ludwigsburg University of Education is a university of educational sciences. It is characterised by a close link between subject matter and (teaching) practice.
As an exchange student, you come either via Erasmus or a bilateral agreement with one of our numerous partner universities and can study with us for 1 to a maximum of 3 semesters. There are no tuition fees, only a small social and administrative fee.
Please note that apart from the "Courses Taught in English", all other courses are mainly held in German (e.g. Geography, Educational Science, Politics, History).
Courses taught in English can be found here: https://lsf.ph-ludwigsburg.de/qisserverlb/rds?state=wtree&search=1&trex=step&root120222=133020%7C137854&P.vx=kurz
At LUE, the International Office is primarily responsible for exchange students.
Students from non-partner universities who are interested in a regular degree programme should contact the International Office directly.
Overview of the enrolment procedure:
As soon as you have completed all the documents and paid the fees, you are legally admitted and will receive your student ID card with your admission number. This admission number is your individual identification number as a student of Ludwigsburg University of Education.
Please carry your student ID card with you at all times. It has many important functions:
A wide range of subjects can be studied at LUE. You can study these as subject matter in their own right or in combination with teaching methodology (see bottom of this page).
International exchange students can generally take courses from any of these subjects in consultation with their coordinator at home. However, it may happen in individual cases that there are no more places available due to too many participants. In this case, the International Office will try to find a suitable substitute course for you. In principle, however, it is sufficient if you enrol directly in the courses at the beginning of the semester via our registration system LSF or by email with the lecturers.
Our tutors will support you during the Welcome Programme.
You will find all courses in the semester in the so-called “Vorlesungsverzeichnis” (course catalogue)
You can either view this online or download it as a pdf file.
At the end of the course catalogue, under the heading "Courses Taught in English", you will find courses that are particularly recommended for exchange students.
These courses are also suitable for students who have little or no knowledge of German.
Here are some important terms that you will come across every day at a German university:
