Study Regulations

What are study regulations?

Study regulations are a guidelines governing the structure and contents of a specific course of studies.

Study regulations list the prerequisites for the respective degree program and the necessary academic achievements. Apart from that, the individual modules of a specific course of studies are listed. This allows you, e.g., to check which topics are covered in a course of studies, and whether they are graded. In addition, the study regulations contain information on the possible types of examination (written exam, paper, oral exam, etc.) and in which areas you have to take examinations or present other academic achievements.

Study regulations are available for each course of study, and – due to the fact that each degree program focuses on other topics – the regulations differ from each other. Thus, you can check the respective study regulations to find out, for example, how exactly the Bachelor's course of Digital Philology differs from the Joint Bachelor German Studies or the course of German / Teaching at Secondary Schools.

You might come across different versions of a certain course's study regulations, but from different years. Degree programs are evaluated at certain intervals. As a result, it is possible that they are restructured – leading to changes in the study regulations. If you enroll for a certain degree program, this is usually only possible for the most recent version of the study regulations. If you enrolled on the basis of an older version of the study regulations, you can usually complete the course of studies according to that without having to change anything.
