Choosing your courses
On this page, you will find information about how to find and choose your courses as well as registration information for them.
If you are looking for courses to fill in your Learning Agreement, please choose courses from the previous semester or year. Available lectures and seminars for each semester only appear about one month prior the start of the semester. After your arrival in Hannover, you can update your Learning Agreement with the new courses you are taking here.
In general there are three ways to find information about offered courses:
1. Our online course shedule HIS-LSF
2. The "kommentierte Vorlesungsverzeichnisse" of our faculties / institutes
3. The learning management system Stud.IP
In order to register for courses, our faculties mostly use one of these systems:
1. The learning management system Stud.IP
2. Individual (often manuel) procedures of the faculties / institutes
Next to our course catalogs, the module catalogs are a good source of information for your Learning Agreement or a first glance at our teaching program. Usually one module consists of two courses (lectures, seminars...). Please be aware that not all courses of a module are offered each semester! This should not be a problem for your Learning Agreement.
We provided the module catalogs of many of our subjects on the following webpage. Please be aware that most of the catlogs are only available in the German language: Modulkataloge
Please find a catalogue of all lectures/modules that are taught in English under the link below. Please notice that this should be considered as an orientation (the lectures of the upcoming semesters are released some weeks before the relevant semester starts!):

All faculties and institutes draft "kommentierte Vorlesungsverzeichnisse (KVV)." This translates to "commented university calender." These booklets can be found at different places in the institutes as well as on the webpages of the faculties or institutes. Please be aware that some KVVs will not be published until a few weeks before courses start. Otherwise, they provide the most comprehensive information collection about courses and registration in the faculty/institute. Be aware that most KVVs are only available in German.
