PORTA is the integrated campus management system of the University of Trier. You use PORTA to register for and deregister from courses. There you will find information about the courses, your achievements as well as documents relating to your studies, such as your certificate of enrollment ("Immatrikulationsbescheinigung"). You can find these on PORTA under: My Studies > Student Service > Requested Reports / Reports.
How and when do I register for courses?
You can register for courses via PORTA as soon as you have received your ZIMK access information after successfully enrolling at Trier University. Please also note the registration deadlines for courses or pay attention to the basic course data on PORTA. You will not be able to register outside the registration deadlines. Here you will find instructions on how to sign up for courses on PORTA. Once you are registered, your registration will be transferred to the "Stud.ip" system within one day.
How many ECTS credits will I get for my class?
The number of ECTS credits varies from course to course and depends on the workload, level (BA/MA) and also the subject. ECTS credits are not listed in the course catalogue (Porta). Here you can find information on ECTS credits (click on "Information" links for each subject!) and on the ECTS Coordinators for your subject in Trier. For more detailed information on courses, ECTS credits (if not listed on the departments´ websites) or other subject-related questions, please contact your ECTS Coordinators
