  1. If I am matriculated at Heidelberg university and change from Bachelor to Masters, is this a new matriculation or a change of program?
  2. If I change program, can I get credit for modules from a different subject in Computational Linguistics?
  3. Which deadlines apply for changes of study program and who is responsible for changes of program?
  4. I want to change program and now want to study Computational Linguistics. Do I have to consult with the study advisor?

  1. If I am matriculated at Heidelberg university and change from Bachelor to Masters, is this a new matriculation or a change of program?

    It is a change of program ("Umschreibung"). You will have to reregister in time for the following term and then use your master admission for the program change.

  2. If I change program, can I get credit for modules from a different subject in Computational Linguistics?

    This might be possible but can only be done in person (not per email or telephone). Please contact the study advisor (studienberatung-master(at)cl.uni-heidelberg.de) for a personal meeting. For the meeting you need to bring along the proof of the credit points ("Schein") you would like to transfer. You will then bring the list of the modules/credits we allow you to transfer to the administrative office who will enter it into the LSF system. If they do not appear in the transcript after a few weeks, please contact the administrative office again.

  3. Which deadlines apply for changes of study program and who is responsible for changes of program?

    Changes of study program are done in the central university "Studierendenadministration" (Seminarstrasse 2). Our Computational Linguistics study advisors are only responsible for consulting prior to such a change and for the potential transfer of credit points. If you want to change program and are already in the third semester or higher it is obligatory to consult the study advisors of the new program. The deadline for program changes are on the pages of the Studierendenadministration.

  4. I want to change program and now want to study Computational Linguistics. Do I have to consult with the study advisor?

    Although overall recommended, such a consultation is only obligatory if you are already in the third or higher semester in your old program.
