Guidance and Information for Students

What is the meaning of this passage in the study regulations? Is it possible to write a master’s thesis externally, at a company? Can I get credit for courses taken abroad? We are happy to advise you on these and other issues.

Courses and Lecturers

The lectures of the individual programs are listed on the “Teaching, Research, Study” (German abbreviation: “LSF”) portal. Students register there for exams and tests. The “collision table” makes conflicts visible at a glance.
