Important information regarding EBC3RSS

Following the introduction of new formats for EBC1 and EBC2 in recent semesters, students can now benefit from more variety for EBC3 courses. While all EBC3 classes will feature the same basic structure, lecturers will be offering different core elements. Therefore, it is essential that you study the respective syllabi before you sign up for a class to make sure that you have the best chance of getting into a course that is aligned with your own interests. Also, please note that you will no longer have to buy a coursebook for EBC3, as lecturers will provide you with whatever materials are required for their classes.

Welcome to the Institute for English Business Communication!

Registration for EBC1 in WS23

Update September 21 (4pm):

We have added two new classes (478 & 564) and registration for those courses is now possible - there are still quite a few places available. All other classes have been filled from the respective waiting lists in the most efficient manner possible in coordination with VRLS and have now reached FULL PHYSICAL CAPACITY. Therefore, unless anyone deregisters from those courses, your only option to do EBC1 this semester if you have not secured a spot yet is to sign up for one of the two new classes 478 or 564 as long as they still have open slots.

This process has involved several complex operations and it has been possible to provide enough spaces to cover overall net demand; however, given limited preferences, it will unfortunately not be possible to take into account every single individual situation, but our goal - together with VRLS - has always been to accommodate as many students as possible, in particular those at a more advanced stage of their studies. With our resources now exhausted (as described above), please do not contact individual lecturers or the Institute as we will not be able to add any more spaces to classes that show full capacity.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
