Advising of Studies

Preliminary Steps

If you are interested in studying English at the University of Zurich, you may want to attend the Studieninformationstage (an event intended for prospective students). In addition, if you enrol with English as your academic major, you will be invited to the department's Erstsemestrigentag, where you will receive further information on the course of studies and the English Department.

In any case, you should consult the English Department's "Bachelor and Master Study Guide" (an indispensable guide for anyone studying English here in Zurich - PDF available in the Downloads section).

For details concerning application (for all degrees), please consult the university's site on Application & Admission. There you can also find information concerning language requirements.

Finally, you can find information on courses offered in current and past semesters in the official Vorlesungsverzeichnis.

How to Proceed

If you are unable to find the information you need with the help of the various sources mentioned above, then you should browse the FAQ section. If you still cannot find the answer you are looking for, you can:

  • Contact the instructor of the specific course you are interested in.
  • For specific queries concerning literature or linguistics, send an email to the respective OberassistentIn (Senior Teaching and Research Associates).
  • Contact the Academic Advisor.
