Available Courses and their ECTS Credit Points

Some courses are given annually, some every two years, but there are also additional courses which are given only occasionally or only once. The best source of information for future (and past) courses is the Course Management System (Modulverwaltung) of the department:

→ Course Planning/Planung
→ Longtermschedule/Langfristplanung
→ Course-oriented Schedule or Module-oriented Schedule
→ Faculty: Mathematics and Computer Science
→ Department/Fachrichtung: Mathematics / Bioinformatics / Computer Science

By clicking on courses, you can find information about the contents.

ECTS Credit Points

The information about the credit points is unfortunately not so straightforward to find. In the long-term planning view, you can switch between the course-based view and the module-oriented view:

1. In the module-oriented view: select the appropriate study program (Bachelor/Master) as follows:

  • 0086c: 2014, BSc Informatik (Mono), 150 LPs
  • 0089c: 2014, MSc Informatik (Mono), 120 LPs
  • 0084d: 2013, BSc Mathematik (Mono), 120 LPs
  • 0280c: 2018, MSc Mathematik (Mono), 120 LPs
  • 0260c: 2012, BSc Bioinformatik (Mono), 150 LPs
  • 0262c: 2019, MSc Bioinformatik (Mono), 120 LPs
You then see the ECTS credit points in the left column in light blue color marked as "LP".

2. In the course-based view:

  • The leftmost column under the heading "Modules" shows one or several "module keys".
  • Select the key with the prefix of your study program according to the above list and click it.
  • A subwindow will open, and at the bottom you will find the ECTS credits under the heading "LP".
  • For bioinformatics, the course-based view is incomplete because many courses are given by other departments.
As a rule, classes with 4+2 hours (4 hours lectures and 2 hours exercises) typically have 10 ECTS, sometimes less, classes with 2+2 hours or seminars with 2 hours have typically 5 ECTS.
  • Usually, lectures are paired up with exercise/tutorial classes ("practice seminar"), and the lecture plus the excercises together form one module.
  • The ETCS credits are given for the module.
  • You have to pass both, the criteria for the exercises (usually based on regular participation, and submitting exercise sheets) and for the lecture (typically an exam) to get the credits for the module.

Besides these "practice seminars", there are also other seminars, that truly have the character of a seminar. Usually the participants prepare a presentation based on studying the literature.

Filling the Online Learning Agreement (OLA)

  • For our department, enter modules in the lines of the OLA.
  • If the module consists of several items, as is usually the case, enter the CODE number for both items on one line, for example 19303701+19303702 or 19303701/02.
  • For the SUBJECT, it is sufficient to name the subject of the lecture and add "and practice seminar". (This is despite the fact that the Distributed Campus portal recommends to enter "only individual courses (seminar, lecture, exercise, etc.)".
  • There is an exception for some modules that stretch over two semesters, or some 15-credit modules that combine lectures and seminars.
  • IMPORTANT: For "Responsible Person at the Receiving Institution" enter the email address international@mi.fu-berlin.de.
