Semester Courses

Course Registration Information

 Students of the University of Fribourg can register directly via MyUnifr. For all other groups (employees of Unifr, employees and students of our partner institutions), course registration takes place via our website.

Auditors, persons from outside the university (except partner institutions) and visiting students who are not part of a Mobility Programme do not have access to the semester language courses.

Registration Procedure 

When registering for a language course for the first time, an online placement test must be completed. You can access the test when you register for a course. If you have already taken the placement test in the previous semester, you do not need to retake it in the following semester.

For Italian courses, participation in an oral placement interview is also mandatory (information is contained in the online placement test).

Registration for the course also includes registration for the examination or the evaluation procedure.
