During the lecture period I will regularly be personally available. However, until further notice this will only be possible by way of telephone appointments or video conference offers. Every Tuesday (1.00 p. m. – 2.00 p. m.) and every Wednesday (10.00 a. m. – 12.00 a. m.) you may contact me under my office number or in a video conference room for subject-related course guidance. To avoid crosstalks in the latter case, please make a personal appointment during video visiting hours by e-mail (contact data see above).

Enquiries by e-mail will still be dealt with or answered. Currently, additional appointments are only possible in exceptional cases and after having fixed an appointment. During semester breaks, appointments and guidance are possible on request.

General hints

Before asking for personal guidance you should make use of the Documents to be found on the Institute website as well as the obligatory study documents! Many problems and questions can already be solved this way. In case of more complex problems and questions, a personal appointment makes more sense; simple and minor problems can certainly be solved by e-mail or on the phone. In case of specific questions concerning the each respective Chairs, please make use of the guidance offers there (see contact partners listed below).

Recognition of qualifications and examinations

If you would like to have examinations passed in the context of earlier studies recognized for the B.A. and M.A. Education, this should be prepared beforehand during an appointment. For this appointment, it is obligatory that you bring evidence of the qualifications and examination to be recognized, or you should send it in advance by e-mail. This allows for checking or assessing the possibilities and extent of recognition beforehand.

BaföG (state scholarship) matters

After the 3. semester, receivers of BaföG (state scholarship) must provide evidence by way of Form 5 that they have achieved the `common qualifications´ of the respective semester; the form must be signed by the representative of the department after the qualification overview has been assessed (please bring for your appointment!). Experience so far has shown that often it is not really clear what `common´ actually means. Thus, please note the common practice:

  1. For B.A. Education, in the ideal case 17 examinations (ex) and 2 qualifications beforehand (qb) must have been achieved until the end of 3. semester. Achieving the `common´ qualifications means that at least 75% of ex and qb must be proven, accordingly, at least 13 ex and one qb (alternatively 12 ex and 2 qb) must have been successfully completed.
  2. The same percentage (ca. 75%) is valid for 5. semester. As in the ideal case at least 24 ex and 3 qb (whilst considering the different semesters of the consolidation modules) must have been completed, `common´ refers to at least 19 ex and 2 qb (alternatively 18 ex and 3 qb).
