On Course Types

Lectures and Exercises

These courses generally do not require pre-registration unless indicated otherwise in the description. Separate registration for the courses is not required, however many courses use Moodle rooms (e-learning platform). The link to these rooms can usually be found on the pages of the respective professorship.

Seminars

Seminar places are limited and therefore we cannot guarantee participation. The application phase for seminars takes place towards the end of the previous semester (July/August for the winter semester). If you are interested in a seminar, please contact us early on to increase your chances.

After this application period, there are still spaces available in many seminars. A list of open seminar places will then be linked here until two weeks after the start of lectures.

Seminars can usually only be selected before the start of lectures. Occasionally it is still possible to change to a seminar in the first weeks after the start of lectures.
