There are a number of pdf-guidelines available online to assist students with alma.
Students will primarily use the functions found in the dropdown menu Mein Studium. These include:
- Mein Studium > Studienplaner mit Modulplan (My studies > Planner of studies with Module plan)
- Mein Sudium > Belegungen (My Studies > Show my Enrollments)
- Mein Studium > Leistungen (My Studies > My Achievements)
This page will focus on Studienplaner mit Modulplan which is used for courses and exams.
We strongly advise you to apply for courses and exams via the Study Planner (Studienplaner), not via the Course Catalogue or the Schedule (Stundenplan).
You can only apply for courses and exams during their official registration periods. For the winter semester 2020/21 these are:
|Enrolling in courses|| |
Lectures: 14.9. – 29.10. 2020
Tutorials and Basic Module Seminars: 16.10. – 29.10.2020
|Withdrawal from enrollment||Seminars and exercises: 13.10. – 23.10. 2020|
|Registering for exams|| |
Withdrawal without reason: Please see the exam regulations for your study program.
Die Abmeldung von einer schriftlichen oder praktischen Prüfungsleistung oder der Bachelor-Arbeit/Master-Arbeit ohne Angabe von Gründen ist bis einschließlich einen Werktag (ohne Samstage) vor dem ersten Tag der Prüfung möglich. 4Bei mündlichen Prüfungsleistungen muss die Abmeldung spätestens drei Werktage (ohne Samstage) vor dem Tag des betreffenden Prüfungstermins erklärt werden.
|Enrollment dates for the summer semester 2021 have not yet been announced.|
When you open the Studienplaner there are two views available: the Module Plan View (Modulplan) and the Examination Regulations View (Prüfungsordnung anzeigen). You mus make surethat you are in the Examination Regulations View.
If you see Modulplan anzeigen in the top left corner of the screen, then you are in the correct view. If you see Prüfungsordnung anzeigen, you need to click that text to change the view.
In alma courses and exams (exams refer to Prüfungen as well as Studienleistungen) are two distinct entities. They are linked in the sense that exams are assigned to courses. These assignments may change from term to term however. Students need to register separately for both courses and for the exams linked to them.
Courses and exams are separated by the use of different icons and colours.
The connection between them is indicated by the numbers of the exam elements and the numbers in the name of the course group.
In the following example the Introduction to Cultural Studies lecture is linked to the exam 210 and the accompanying tutorial is linked to the Studienleistung 215. This means that students who attend the lecture and want to be credited for it need to register for the exam 210. Students who attend the tutorial and want credit for it have to register for the Studienleistung 215. Registration implies a commitment by the student to accomplish the required tasks. Students who cannot fulfil the commitment need to de-register themselves or contact the examination office.
