Research Seminar (FS)
Research seminars are courses with a coaching character and an increased proportion of independent work on the part of the students. Students carry out their own project work, which can be research projects as well as application-related practical projects.
Classroom teaching and compulsory attendance
In coordination with the Vice-Rector for Academic Programs and Student Affairs, reduced classroom teaching is possible. The decision as to whether this is suitable is made by the teachers. For the reduction of classroom teaching, the Rectorate plans a maximum of 1/3 of the announced course units (for a course with 2 semester hours this would be at least 15 hours as part of the course announcement). A reduction in face-to-face teaching has no influence on the crediting of the teaching hours. The compulsory attendance for students can also be reduced in research seminars, since a large part of the student workload has to be performed outside of the lecture hall. A guideline for student attendance is at least 50% of the announced course units.
Please make sure to familiarize yourself with current regulations on Research seminar performance. For detailed information, please see the relevant Legal documents & internal guidelines.
