Registration for Modules and Classes
In order to successfully complete a module, three forms of registration are usually necessary:
- 1. Module registration
- 2. Class registration
- 3. Registration for examinations and/or credits
Step 1 is the prerequisiste for steps 2 and 3. Step 2 is the prerequisite for
- assignment to a support class (in the case of lectures with support classes)
- access to teaching materials (via TUCaN directly or via Moodle)
- viewing your exam results
You will register for modules and classes via the electronic campus management system TUCaN.
Registration for new modules in the forthcoming semester opens in September (Winter Semester) and March (Summer Semester) respectively.
If you have any problems registering for modules and classes, please inform the Office for Student Affairs by e-mail.
Modules in the Language Resource Centre
To register for modules in the Language Resource Centre, particularly for the module “English for Mathematicians”, please take note of the procedures described on the Language Resource Centre website. You will usually have to take an assessment test before registering.
Modules in several languages
Some modules are offered in two languages. It is possible to change; please ask the Office for Students Affairs.
Withdrawal from superfluous modules
Under My Modules on TUCaN you can check which modules you are registered for. If you have registered for a module in which you do not wish to take an examination, you can withdraw your registration. If this is not, or no longer, possible, please send an e-mail to the Office for Student Affairs.
Early Master’s credits
In order to smooth your path from your Bachelor’s to your Master’s study programme, you can accrue up to 30 CPs for your Master’s programme during your Bachelor’s programme. Any exams you pass for early Master’s credits will be treated exactly as they would if they had been taken during the Master’s programme itself.
- Example 1: Modules which fall within the Master’s specialisation area can and should be registered via the Bachelor’s compulsory elective areas (especially areas A, B, C, D). The application for the Bachelor’s certificate will state which modules contribute to the Bachelor’s degree and which are being transferred to the Master’s programme.
- Example 2: All other modules (e.g. subsidiary subject, mathematical specialistation, Studium Generale) have to be registered via the area “Early Master’s credits”.
The registration of early Master’s credits is only possible on the basis of an approved (Bachelor’s and) Master’s examination plan. As soon as an early Master's examination has been taken, only those Master's courses can be studied in which the early Master's examination can be introduced. Therefore, a conscientious Master's programme planning is urgently required before Master's examination achievements are brought forward.
Additional voluntary electives
You can register and be examined on modules that are not a component of your standard programme of study. On application to the Office for Student Affairs, credits from so-called additional voluntary electives can be included on a separate credit list; the credit points and any grade awarded will not count towards your degree. Normally, you do not have the right to apply for the results of an examination that has been taken as an additional voluntary elective to be recognised subsequently for your ongoing or a later degree.
