Note for students taking classes and/or exams in Cologne

Students taking classes at the University of Cologne must first register as “Kleine Zweithörer” there (which is free of charge for students in the MA NAS because of our cooperation with the Cologne NAS program). To do so, you must create an account in KLIPS (their equivalent to BASIS): Afterwards you will receive further instructions.


Once you are registered as a “Zweithörer,” you can sign up for classes in KLIPS and access course materials in ILIAS (equivalent to our eCampus). However, you will still need to register for the same classes in BASIS!

Please note: Should you encounter any difficulties with signing up for classes in KLIPS, please contact the person who is teaching the class in question and let them know about your intention to attend their class.


When registering for exams at the University of Cologne via KLIPS, please make sure to mention that you are a University of Bonn student. Additionally, you will again need to register for the exams in our own BASIS system as well. As regards term papers, the exam form must be signed by your instructor and your grade must be recorded on it as well. This is the only way to ensure you are actually granted your well-deserved credit points.


When in doubt about any of these regulations, please do not hesitate to contact Katja Niederschulte at the Institute for North American History in Cologne.
