German universities require students to organise their own programme of studies. For example, you will have to put together your own timetable. Later, you will have to decide which exams to take in which semester, and you will have to register for those exams. How does that work? Are there instructions? Where can you go for advice? Here's what you need to get started:
- Please take part in the orientation weeks! (See above, under the heading 'Arrival, welcome and orientation') Among other things, the events programmes include workshops on study organisation.
- On the web page about your degree programme, find the 'Infoschrift' / Infosheet' document, and the 'Studien- und Prüfungsordnung' / 'Subject-specific study and examination regulations' document. These explain which modules your degree programme is comprised of, which ones you can choose, and how you should combine optional and compulsory modules to put together your programme of study. You'll find the link to your degree programme's web page on the degree programmes overview page.
- When you have basic questions about studying and organisational matters, visit the Study FAQ page. There, you'll find many useful answers.
- Don't hesitate to ask for advice! The student committees and the programme advisers are invaluable sources of university know-how.
