  • All the information about the course and the corresponding exam (learning objectives etc.) is available on our chair website
  • There will not be a Q&A session about the course or any other content-related practice test.
  • The exam will be open book and in essay form. For further information about the essay-style online exams this semester, please see the Faculty website and the information sheets linked there.
  • There will be a mock exam on OLAT one week before the real exam in order to test the access to the exam (login, opening files) and your own technical equipment. You can find more information here.
  • Please follow the instructions on the website and contact IT support if problems occur.
  • We understand that this has been a challenging semester for everyone. However, please keep in mind that the course is new for all the students and everybody has faced similar challenges this past year. We will do our best to make sure the exam is graded in a way that is fair on everybody.

In the coming spring semester 2021, the courses will initially be held digitally (in the same way as in the autumn semester 2020). The extent to which face-to-face teaching will be possible again at a later stage depends largely on the government regulations. The information in the information sheet and the VVZ on times and rooms is naturally aimed at face-to-face teaching. All details regarding the digital teaching will be communicated on the homepage in due course; all lectures will be provided as podcasts.


Dear Students,

The course starts at 2 March 2021. the respective lectures will be recorded as podcasts on the dates specified in the information sheet. Please be patient afterwards, the podcasts will be uploaded as soon as they have been processed (presumably 24 hours later). After the processing they can be viewed at any time. There are no live sessions!

Exam: Due to the high booking numbers, the exam will take place as a written exam (open book, 2-hour essay style)
