Modules, Exams, Curriculum...
You will find the examination regulations, module descriptions and curriculum plans on the website of your degree program (on the right by the quick links). These can help you organize your studies as they contain important information, e.g. about the modules and examination types.
Some lab courses will take place on site in the coming winter semester. To enter the laboratories, students need a laboratory ID. The IDs will be given out during the lab courses. A list of the courses in which the laboratory IDs will be issued for a course / year will be sent by email one week before the start of the lecture period. The prerequisite for receiving the ID is a passed general safety briefing for the laboratory. The safety briefing has to be completed online via Moodle.

Learning Agreement for master’s students
Did your bachelor's degree only have 6 semesters (180 CP) instead of 7 (210 CP)? If so, you are still missing 30 CP, which you have make up for before registring your master's thesis. You can clarify questions about the type and scope of the learning agreement with the examination board. additional Information here
The first semester can sometimes be a challenge. Especially when (almost) everything suddenly runs digitally. If you have any faculty-specific questions, concerns or problems during your studies, Ms. Völkel email@example.com is your contact at the Faculty of Life Sciences.
