How to become a guest auditor

Use our online portal for registration

A few weeks before lectures begin, we open our online portal MyCampus for registration for the guest auditor programme. There you can register for the courses you have chosen from our guest auditor directory. After your registration has been checked, you will receive a request for payment by e-mail. After successful receipt of payment, you will receive your guest auditor's certificate by mail.

In addition, you will receive the access data for your Leuphana account and Leuphana mail account by e-mail/SMS. If you were already a guest student in the previous semester, you can use your existing Leuphana account from the previous semester. With the access data you can log in to MyStudy and your mail account to view all current information about your booked courses.

You can find detailed step-by-step instructions on how to enroll in our FAQs.
