In the Department of Geography, only German-taught courses are offered.

In Earth Sciences, on the contrary, there are study programs and specializations in the Master's level that are fully taught in English. Furthermore, there are some individual English-spoken courses in all Bachelor's and Master's degrees.

You can combine courses from both departments. It is not possible to take a Master course as a Bachelor student, but vice versa. Taking a Master course as a Bachelor student is only allowed if this course is integrated in your degree program at your home university.

The course selection takes place via RWTHonline. Here you can access the courses offered by the department based on previous semesters.

Unfortunately, due to the limited number of participants, we cannot offer you places on the major field trips. It is also not possible for you to participate in courses offered by other faculties unless they are affiliated with our course offerings. In exceptional cases it can be allowed if

  1. the other faculty agrees and
  2. at least 50% of the elected course are from our course offer.

However, this must be arranged before your arrival. In this case please contact one of our contact persons and mention course name, course number and faculty.

Taking German courses is possible before the beginning of the semester and also during the semester. In the case of other foreign languages, it depends on whether there are still places available.
