Modul Positions in the Study Plan

Contact the secretary of the examination board. The secretary of the examination board can move the language course to your C1 catalog.

 

If you have taken more modules than you need to, e.g., multiple language courses with 3 ECTS in the C1 section, we can remove those you do not need anymore to fulfill your curriculum. Please note that we can only remove courses if you over-fulfill a catalog. We must not remove courses from catalogs when you do not over-fulfill them, e.g., if you want to remove courses to improve your current grade point average!

Select the courses you want to remove and contact the secretary of the examination board.

 

No!

You can not remove course grades from catalogs to improve your grade. You can only remove a certain course from a catalog (and your curriculum) if you already over-fulfill a specific catalog and still meet all requirements after removing the chosen course.
