Legal Regulations Concerning the Distribution of Places for Courses with Limited Capacity
Places in courses with limited capacity are always distributed in line with the specific legal guidelines found in Section 12 of the Statutes of Academic Affairs (Satzung für Studienangelegenheiten, or SfS), published April 11, 2017.
The following rules generally apply to the distribution of places in required courses with limited capacity (including elective required courses):
Students from different status groups are prioritized as follows:
- Students who are conducting their studies according to the timeline stipulated in the standard curriculum of the study regulations for their program and who are set to complete the relevant module in accordance with this plan; otherwise, students who did not receive a place in the module during the previous semester despite having successfully pursued their studies according to said schedule thus far (applicable to required modules; elective required modules of point 4).
- Students who are one semester behind schedule according to the timeline stipulated in the standard curriculum.
- Students who are two or more semesters behind schedule according to the timeline stipulated in the standard curriculum.
- Students who are conducting their studies according to the timeline stipulated in the standard curriculum and are able to attend the module as an elective required course.
- Other students.
Students who have not been able to comply with the timeline stipulated in the standard curriculum should seek assistance from the Office of Academic Affairs for Biology and receive advising on their individual curriculum plan.
