How to design your individual schedule
Your individual schedule
Right before the start of the semester, you plan and design your individual schedule. This schedule will ensure you when and where to attend which course.1. Look at the study plan in latest version of the Degree Programme and Examination Regulations of your degree programm (top PDF “Konsolidierte Fassung” or “Konsolidierte Fassung/date”). You can see which courses you should attend in the first semester in the table column “Workload distribution per semester in ECTS points”, subcolumn “1”. 2. When and where the courses take place, whether you have to register for it and, if necessary, more detailed information on the content can be found in the course catalogue.
- In the main menu, selct “Studies offered” “Show university course catalog”. There you first select the “Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences and Theology”, then the name of your degree program, then the “latest” PO (= Prüfungsordnungsversion/ Examination Regulation) version (highest number is usually the latest version, e.g. 20182 is newer than 20162) with the correct degree (Bachelor or Master) and 1st subject or 2nd subject (in the two-subject Bachelor).
- There you will find (possibly under other categories such as “Grundlagen- und Orientierungsprüfung (GOP) or GOP modules, Bachelor’s or Master’s examination” or “Total”) the modules that you have found in the study plan (see above) and this will take you to the courses (symbol: open book).
- If you have found the course and click on the title, you will land on the “Basic data” page of the course. Here you can find the title with the StudON link on the right side under “Links” and you can register for the course on StudON (please don’t forget: register to StudON via SingleSignOn).
- Next to the “Basic data” you will find “Parallel groups / dates”. There are the days and times when the course takes place. There should also be an option “Mark for timetable“. If you can select this, you can see your marked courses in a weekly view under “My Studies” – “Timetable” (the correct semester must still be selected here and the “Lecture time view” option must be set).
Two-subject bachelor students in full-time studies choose the courses for their two subjects in this way.
Accompanying tutorials or exercieses are offered for some courses (can be found in the course catalogue), which are not mentioned in the course plan and attendance is not obligatory. However, voluntary participation is recommended in any case. Some degree programs offer tutorials for international students, in which course content is repeated and deepended according to the needs of the participants.
In the recommendations of the study plan, which courses should be taken in which semester, the deadline for “Grundlagen- und Orientierungsprüfung” (GOP) is also taken into account. Which modules belong to the GOP can be found in the study and examination regulations. The GOP is passed if these examinations have been completed by the end of the third semester at the lastest and have been passed on the first or second attempt. (See further info video about GOP).
It is worth taking a look at the website of your subject because you will find not only the module handbook (or module descriptions, containing more detailded information about the modules) but also helpful information or study guides for the start of your studies in many subjects.
In the Bachelor of Arts degree program at the Faculty of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Theology, additional ECTS points must be earned in the “Key Qualifications” area. You can see in your subject’s examination regulations whether the provision of certain achievements is partially specified or whether you can choose freely (in the case of a two-subject Bachelor’s degree program, the first subject is decisive). You don’t have to start with the key qualifications in the first semester: it makes sense to coordinate your choice with a professional goal that often develops in later semesters.
