Before you can register for any course, you need to have access to Portal². Students will receive their Portal² login information from the International Office via e-mail. This information will be sent out a couple of weeks after the application deadline.
Please make sure to first log in to Portal² and then start with the course registration process as described below in a new tab in the same browser. While completing the steps described below, you need to stay logged in to Portal² at all times.
Please find a list of all courses open to international exchange students on www.uni-mannheim.de/courses.
Once you click on the above link, you are automatically directed to the current course catalog. The course catalog should open in the same browser you are using for Portal², but in a different tab.
The teaching mode tells you if a course is held on campus or virtually (live or recorded). This information is provided in the course details.
To view the list of courses offered at the Mannheim school you have been admitted to*, please click on the corresponding link in this list.
