Transitional Regulations

Who is Affected?

The transitional regulations apply to students who started Law as a Minor, 60 ECTS Credits, before Fall Semester 2021, but who have not completed it or been permanently excluded. Starting in Fall Semester 2021, students will be transferred to Law as a Minor, 60 ECTS Credits, based on the new regulations. The previous modules will then no longer be offered if they are not continued in the new degree program.

What Needs to be Kept in Mind?

Bachelor’s degree modules that were completed successfully before the changeover will be credited toward the revised Law as a Minor, 60 ECTS Credits, study program on the basis of the number of ECTS credits received in accordance with the provisions of the old program regulations. 60 ECTS credits are required for the degree.

To make the transition to the study program Law as a Minor, 60 ECTS Credits, as smooth as possible, the transitional curriculum will be based on the previous academic program; however, the degree will be completed in accordance with the new regulations. To round out the curriculum, students must complete the missing, equivalent modules in accordance with the new regulations.

Failed attempts taken up to and including Spring Semester 2021 will not be taken into account, provided that they have not already led to the student’s exclusion from the study program.
