In order to receive ECTS for an EPICUR course, you need to be registered at the host university. For some universities, this requires further steps after your acceptance. Please click on the university hosting your EPICUR course to check what the steps will be for you:
After being accepted to your EPICUR course on the EPICUR Inter-University Campus (EIUC), students will be contacted and asked to submit an application in SDUs exchange system. This is the only way (at the moment) to get students correctly into SDU systems + make sure documents are aligned with requirements from Danish law.
In the SDU application, students will need to supply the following:
  • English Language form, signed by the home university and the student. Students will be provided with this form from SDU. It does not require any test results and can be signed by various employees at the home institution.
  • A transcript that is signed/stamped. Options with transcripts that can be validated online (e.g., QR codes) are accepted as well.  
  • Copy of passport / national ID 
Students need to be registered in the UFR campus management system in order to receive credits for their courses. Students need to fill out a form (in English) in order to provide us with the information required for registration and send it to epicur@ucf.uni-freiburg.de.

Frequently Asked Questions (if you already have been accepted to a course):
A learning agreement contains the courses you are planning to take with EPICUR and the ECTS credits allocated. It will help you to get confirmation of the recognition of the ECTS in your studies prior to course start. In order to get the learning agreement signed before your EPICUR course starts, you need to request it via the Student App (link see above) and send it to the respective person of your degree programme.  
To request an EPICUR learning agreement, you need to perform two steps:

1) Complete your personal information on the EIUC. 
You need to fill out a "Personal Information Declaration" request under "Requests" in which you provide your personal information. 
Fill in the form with your personal information and press the "Submit" button
2) Request a Learning Agreement
If your learning agreement doesn't show the correct courses, you might need to switch between your study profiles. Please see below under "How can I switch between my EPICUR study profiles"?
Click on the VCLP the "Click here to access your courses" button.

You can also use the search function in the top right corner (magnifying glass) or access this category to locate your course.

Tipp: In the category or the search results click on the drop down menu next to your course on the right side and select "Add to favorites". Your course will then be easily accessible in your Dashboard.
If your course starts later this year, please be patient. The teachers of the course have to export the course to the VCLP and the course members must be synchronized with the VURS.

If your course has already started, please check if you have used the correct user account to login into the VCLP. Please use the same account you have used for registering at the VURS platform. If you have two or more accounts at your university, you might try out the other accounts.

If that does not help, please contact the support (support@learn.epicur.education). Please tell us your full name, university and course.
Please look on the local course page carefully for a "Enroll" or "Join" button or "I would like to enroll" link. Sometimes the link might be "hidden" in a submenu (for example behind a "cog wheel" icon). It can also help to change the language of the LMS to English, if you have difficulties to understand the content.

Most courses also require an enrollment key or password, which should be provided to you by the teachers of your course via email. If you have not received an enrollment key or password for your course, but require one to join or enroll to the course, please contact the teachers directly by using the contact link in the VURS.
On this page you will find some help for joining courses on the AMU Epicur E-Learning Platform.
If you are attending EPICUR courses in different EPICUR tracks, they appear under different study profiles. In the Students App you can access your study profile and change between them if you have more than one (see picture below).
If you want to de-enroll from a course please inform the instructor AND file a request via the Students App. Please specify in the "Withdrawal from study" request which course you want to drop.
