While Studying in Berlin
Course Registration and Campus Management System
It is generally necessary to register for study units and courses online through the Campus Management System within a specified registration period (usually, within the first two weeks of each semester). Pre-enrolled students receive their ZEDAT-Account (general IT-account at Freie Universität Berlin) during their personal enrolment at the International Student Mobility - Welcome Services at Freie Universität Berlin. The ZEDAT-Account is required to use the Campus Management System! Students who were not pre-enrolled will have to wait about 3 weeks for their ZEDAT-Account.
