Module Handbooks and Exam Regulations

A module handbook is always related to the subject-specific examination regulations of a degree program and describes in detail the modules belonging to the respective degree program, their interdependencies, their learning objectives as well as the type of assessments. The scope of each module is characterized by credit points credited upon successful completion of the module.

The module handbook does not replace the course catalog, which provides up-to-date information on variable course dates (e.g., time and location of the course) for each semester.

The module handbooks for all degree programs are offered as a comprehensive PDF document with an introductory prologue explaining the course of studies; they are also available online in the HISinOne campus system in the menu "Studies offered - View module handbooks" or for students logged in via "My studies - my module handbook".

Overview of the semester in the course catalog

For your planning you might want to get a rough overview of all the courses offered in the current semester. You can access a faculty-internal, user-friendly version of the course catalog: http://vvz.tf.uni-freiburg.de/

State Examination degree program

 

State Examination for Teachers' Education in Computer Science (can not be started anymore)

 

The state examination programs for teachers' education have expired and are replaced by the two-level system of a polyvalent two-subject Bachelor followed by a Master of Education.

The previous state examination programs must be completed by July 31, 2024 at the latest (for subject combinations with fine arts and music until July 31, 2025). 

The last examination date according to GymPO is therefore spring 2024 (spring 2025 for subject combinations with fine arts or music). Accordingly, the last opportunity to register is in October 2023 (or October 2024 for subject combinations with Fine Arts or Music).

The examples for study plans are available in German only; please change your language settings if you would like to access them.
