Helpful hints for your Master's programme
- There are two dictionaries available for you: administrative and mathematical. If you ever encounter some German term you need to know or want to extend the dictionary or simply encounter some error, please feel free to contact us.
- Information in a nutshell for the Master of Science of Mathematics.
- You will get an account with an e-mail address and a login for the computer terminals (in 48-521, 48-419 and 48-422) from the CTM (Computer-Team Math Department). It is very useful to work and print at the maths department (150 prints quarterly). You just have to fill in this form and hand it in at 48-521 or the Fachschaft.
- For any mathematical course, you can find its contents, its frequency and availability, the credit points to gain from it and the areas you can put it in as an exam in the Module Handbook.
- It is very helpful to use the exam protocols from the Fachschaft to prepare for the exams. The Fachschaft provides you with other services as selling sweets, coffee, drinks and thermal bindings for theses or scripts.
Registering for exams
- Before your first exam, you need to have an admission, which you have to hand in at least seven weeks before the exam period starts.
Note: If (and only if) you are an exchange student or a student of the international study programmes, there is a different page. If you are not sure, don't hesitate to ask your specialization coordinator or the examination office.
- Before registering for your first exam you need to hand in your Studienplan (curriculum of studies) at the Dean's Office (48-511). It is supposed to give a complete overview of your whole master studies. This means that you plan which lecture you go to in which semester, and in which area you want to make the credit points count. Do not worry if you are not sure yet about all of your lectures, you can make changes to your curriculum later. If you need help constructing it, you can come to the Fachschaft or ask the coordinator of your specialization area. This coordinator will also check if your curriculum conforms to all examination regulations before you hand it in at the Dean's Office.
- Registration for oral exams: Before you can take an exam you have to register for it. To do this you have to log in at the exam administration page, pick your exam and hand in the printed version of the form at the Dean's Office (48-511). After the lecturers have set their exam dates, you go to their secretary and fix a date with them. You can check on the available dates of each lecturer and all exam dates you have already fixed in the exam administration page. If none of the available dates fit you, just ask the lecturer in person if additional dates are possible.
Normally, you can only take exams during the semester break. You can take exams outside the semester break automatically after your third semester. Before, it is possible in special cases, but a request is required.
- You are required to take oral exams with at least three different lecturers. The amount of oral exams per lecturer may not exceed 27 CP.
