How to book a course

Before booking a course please note that some courses are divided into two different categories:

  • "Kurs A, B, C, D": courses of the same level; all courses require the same skills or knowledge
  • "Grundkurs, Aufbau, Fortgeschrittene": courses of different levels; courses require different skills or knowledge

    "Anfänger/Grundkurs/Basic": course is suitable for beginners
    "Fortgeschrittene 1/Aufbau 1": course is suitable for advanced participants
    "Fortgeschrittene 2/Aufbau 2": course is suitable for advanced plus participants

Please choose the category of the course carefully according the level of your skills or knowledge. Costs of rebooking or cancellation due to false booking have be borne by the participants. Therefor, if you are not quite sure which course best suits your sports Level, do not hesitate to contact the Hochschulsport Office for further details.

Additional information on each course is available by clicking on its name. As we believe that integration of students also starts with communication and contact to your fellow students, descriptions of university sports program have not been translated. At the very end of the course description you will find a list. On the right hand side there will be a button saying "Kurs auswählen".

However, some courses are very popular. We therefore recommend to make sure you get a place by using the option "Warteliste".

"Warteliste": course is fully booked; nevertheless, as soon as places are available again you may sign up to be informed by email.

Information on a bank account is only required from those who have to pay a registration or a course fee. If your chosen course is free of charge you don't have to state your bank account.

Please make sure your email address is written correctly! Otherwise you will not receive your booking confirmation and any other information, e.g. cancellation of your course. After you have rechecked all your personal details you confirm booking by clicking "Weiter".

Then you will receive an immediate booking confirmation - which you must print out! Together with your student ID card this confirmation entitles you to take part in the University Sports' activity you have booked.
