We are delighted that you are considering studying law at the University of Passau.
The faculty offers courses and qualifications tailored to the needs of international students, such as the LL.M. German Law for foreign graduates and the Certificate in Principles of German Law. Please click the link below to find out about all programmes available to international students.
How do I apply for a programme? What level of German proficiency do I need? How do I apply for a visa or residence permit? How do I go about finding accommodation in Passau? The International Office has the answers to these and many other questions, and offers practical help with formalities and what you need to know about living and studying in Passau.
Whether you are planning to study a full degree programme at the University of Passau or are joining us for a semester or two through an exchange programme (e.g. ERASMUS, DAAD or a bilateral university exchange), we will help you with the application and matriculation requirements for international applicants.
The Law Faculty's international office is the primary contact for German and international students if you have any questions on the international aspects of your law studies.
Due to the restrictions caused by the Coronavirus pandemic the Law Faculty's international office is currently unable to offer you face-to-face consultations. However, we will be happy to advise you by e-mail or telephone.
In the Wintersemester 20/21 my open consultation hours take place exclusively via Zoom. On Tuesdays between 11 a. m. and 1 p. m. and Wednesdays between 3 p. m. and 5 p. m. You can find the appointment and further information on Stud. IP (see my profile there and go to “Terminvergabe”). Regardless of this, we can of course also arrange an individual (also telephone) consultation appointment at any time. To do so, please send an email to: ulrike.wassermann@uni-passau. de.
I am pleased to be able to support you even in these turbulent times and wish you all the best! Stay healthy!Ulrike Wassermann
