How do I draw up my study plan?
Structuring your semester
You are given a timetable at school, but this is not usually the case at university. There are exceptions to this – please refer to the website for your degree programme to find out whether a set study plan is available. However, students usually have to create their study plan for each semester themselves.
This can be complicated, as sometimes courses and lectures may clash or must be taken in a certain semester. Others are only available in the summer semester, or only available in the winter semester. It is therefore incredibly important that you find out all of the necessary information at the start of your studies.
A tutorial is available explaining how to draw up your schedule.
The Student Advice and Career Service (IBZ) recommends you do the following:
- Use the degree program and examination regulations or module handbook for your degree program available online to find out which courses (such as seminars and lectures) you are required to take.
- Select the courses you need from the course catalog in campo (main menu – courses – show course catalog).
- Take your schedule with you when attending the introductory events for your degree program.
Make sure you attend the introduction event for your degree program which will provide you with valuable, detailed information and answers to frequently asked questions.
