The list below shows all modules of the examination regulations (some information may be outdated).

Studyplan (Studienverlaufsplan)

Here you can find the current examination regulations.

As there are sometimes changes of staff, reserach semesters etc., the actual list is somewhat smaller.

Before you try to attend defined modules ask the person in charge of the module for further details (will the module be given, when, where etc.).

 

Modules of the current semester are also announced on UnivIS and here.

 C: compulsory; C/E: compulsory/elective; O: optional

*: N: minimum number of modules within first to fourth semester.

**: this is just an example to gain 30 credits points (one credit point (CP) corresponds to a workload of 30 hours) [European Credit Transfer System - ECTS] per semester as average workload of 900 hours.You can choose optional modules whenever they are given. MNF-bioc-2xx modules are given in summer semester and MNF-bioc-3xx are given in winter semester usually. To finish your curriculum, you need 95 CP out of compulsory modules, 15 CP out of compulsory/elective modules and 10 CP out of optional modules. If you successfully completed more modules, only the best out of each section will be used calculating your final mark.

Modulelist (OLAT)

Some of the optional modules are planned for second (summer) or third (winter) semester but are given in summer AND winter semesters. Have a look at the module description and ask the person in charge.
