If you encounter problems regarding your tutor, assignments, etc please contact Stephan Schröder.

FAQ: Do I have to register for/participate in the tutorials if i already got active and continuous participation earlier? 
No, you don't have to. As Bachelor these two pillars are already recorded in Campus Managment. As Diplomate be sure to be able to proof that you already achived these pillars. It still would be a good idea to participate, though. Without constant exercise you have no idea what our focus is and it's probalbly way more difficult to succeed in the examination, too.



Exercises are to be turned in into your tutors box in front of room 137 til 12.15o'clock.


The examination will take place on 17.7.09 between 10 and 12 o'clock. It will be held in three to four rooms. Please check which room you have to be in according to your Matrikelnummer.
