Information Regarding the Planning of Studies:
- Accreditation of exams
Students enrolled in the FACTS Master’s program are asked to contact the course coordinator, Prof. Dr. Jochen Bigus, directly for questions regarding the accreditation of exams. It is not possible to accredit exams before the students have been admitted to the FACTS Master’s program.
- Application for a Master's thesis
To be eligible to apply for a Master’s thesis, students must be able to prove that they have accumulated at least 48 credit points at the time of application (see § 6 par. 2 of the exam regulations). Furthermore, successful participation in at least one seminar before the time of application for a Master’s thesis is internally required by all chairs. Thus, students submitting their application for a master’s thesis at the chair where they enrolled for the seminar always have an advantage.
