Description Type Form Scope Grade Weighting
Graded assignments during teaching semester regular assessments written  max. 45 minutes each grade 20% bonus system
End-of-semester exam exam written 90 minutes grade 80% at least


During the first week of instruction, a module agreement will be communicated which is valid for all module courses and in which the exact number and extent of the graded assignments during teaching semester will be determined.

Legal basis

The module description is part of the legal basis in addition to the general academic regulations. It is binding. During the first week of the semester a written and communicated supplement can specify the module description in more detail.
