During the exchange

The time has finally come and your exchange is about to begin. We are very much looking forward to finally welcome you in Dortmund in person.

The International Office has also compiled a list of useful information for you.


You can find out when and where your courses take place in LSF. For most courses, a moodle room is created and you can sign-up to those moodle rooms yourself. Moodle is used by lecturers to communicate with course participants and to upload lecture slides, exercise sheets, etc. For some courses you can also register directly via LSF. If you have any problems with the registration or finding important information, please contact erasmus.physiktu-dortmundde. The Erasmus Coordination will be happy to help you with the registration.


Dortmund students register for examinations directly via the BOSS system. Unfortunately, this is not available for exchange students. If you would like to register for an exam, please contact the lecturer directly. If there are any difficulties, please contact the Erasmus Coordination of the department. If you have registered for an exam but are unable or unwilling to take it, please notify the lecturer at least 24 hours before the exam, otherwise the attempt will be counted as failed and will be noted on your transcript of records.

Campus life

Dortmund has a lot to offer and we hope that you will take advantage of the activities on the TU Dortmund campus in your free time. Whether it's university sports, the university choir or theater visits, we are convinced that the university offers something that is of interest for you! On the TU Dortmund University page you will find a list of the various activities on campus:

Even for non-football fans, there is plenty to explore in the Ruhr region. Take a look at the visitor pages of the city of Dortmund.

Would you like to get to know other students? Then take a look at the International Campus website where you can find some interesting events that take place every semester.

Transcript of Records

Transcript of Records

The Erasmus Coordination is responsible for issuing the Transcript of Records. Please send an e-mail to erasmus.physiktu-dortmundde with a list of all the courses and examinations you have attended. We will then contact the lecturers to collect the results of your examinations. In most cases, the Transcript of Records will be created shortly after your stay and sent to you by e-mail.

Certificate of Attendance

(Information from the website of the International Office)

The Certificate of Attendance is not issued automatically. If you have received a template for this certificate from your home university, the Erasmus+ department coordinator can sign the document. If you have not received a template for this certificate from your home university, Miriam Gothe will issue the Certificate of Attendance.

The start and end dates of your Erasmus mobility cannot be any other dates than the first and last date you were in Dortmund for academic reasons. The end date of your mobility can be, for example, your last examination, a deadline for submitting a paper or an appointment with the Erasmus+ department coordinator. The Certificate of Attendance can be signed or issued at the earliest one week before the academically relevant end date.
