Lectures (2 SWS* = 3 CP) last for a whole semester (term). At the end of the lecture a written or oral test has to be passed.

If you want to make the test, please inform the lecturer ahead of the test that you are an exchange student, as special regulations may apply for visiting students.

If you pass the test you earn 3 credit points (CP). Please ask the lecturer to issue a certificate of the passed test.

In seminars (2 CP) students prepare and give an oral presentation to a specific topic. The topic for which you will have to give a talk you arrange with the instructor of the seminar. For the oral presentation you earn 2 credit points (CP).

Practical lab-courses can be visited the whole year and are usually offered for three weeks or longer. 

Just contact the person in charge of the lab-course, ask for a possibility to participate in the course and arrange the date and duration.

For one week practical course you earn 2 credit points (CP), for two weeks 4 CP, and so on. To earn the CP, a report has to be written.

If you visit an accompanying seminar, in which you prepare and give an oral presentation, you earn two CP for the presentation.
