Normally it is necessary to submit an application. The University of Rostock offers a broad spectrum of subjects and lectures. You will have interesting opportunities to get additional knowledge and skills.

3.3 Time schedule / teaching and training forms

3.3.1 Time schedule

At the beginning of the semester, a schedule for the entire semester will be provided via notice. It includes lecture periods, examination periods, semester breaks, and the commencement of the subsequent semester.

Based on the examination and study plan, the study administration office develops a semester curriculum for each register and each semester in cooperation with the instructors responsible for the single modules. The semester curriculum contains information on the subjects, the instructors, the time exposure of the different class structures, and the dates of classes.

3.3.2 Teaching and training forms

The studies’ contents are taught in different classes. The different kinds of classes are signified by the practice of different forms of teaching and learning. Usually, classes are offered only once a year. 

The following kinds of classes are deployed in the master course:

  • Excursion: Excursions are courses that take place in a non-university environment. These include, for example, study trips or field internships, which are carried out for technical reasons in practice-oriented environments or at external study-relevant locations.
  • Consultation (to supervise scientific work): Consultations are individual counseling sessions between students and teachers. The students produce long-term scientific studies or thesis. The teacher will inform himself at regular intervals about the status of the work and give suggestions.
  • Internship event: An internship event is an internship at the university, which, unlike non-university internships, is a supervised course. It is an exercise to apply acquired theoretical knowledge to specific practical issues, to practice scientific methods and techniques by practical application and to deepen the contents of the module and to train their own work organization.
  • Practical school practice: In a practical school exercise, students teach under instruction individual lessons at a school facility.
  • Seminar: In a seminar, the students will have the opportunity to present their own findings, to put them up for discussion and to present them in written form. Seminars can be conducted as a presence or online event.
  • Tutorial: A tutorial is a course that is carried out by academic or student assistants to supplement a course in accordance with a study regulations. The responsibility for the technical and didactic care lies with the institution or the scientific or artistic staff to which the assistant is assigned.
  • Exercise: In an exercise that is not predominantly practical in nature, the students work on given exercises to deepen and apply the knowledge and the imparting of subject-specific skills and abilities. An exercise offers the opportunity to ask questions, to discuss solutions to problems and to use means of self-control of the achieved level of knowledge.
  • Lecture, Repetition: In a lecture or a repetition, the students will be presented with the curriculum primarily as a lecture of the teacher with the support of media (panels, slides, scripts). Lectures or repetitions can be carried out as a presence or online event.
  • Integrated course: An integrated course combines the lecture with more active forms (eg seminar or exercise) in which the students themselves elaborate given topics on the basis of literature and represent them in the circle of the participants of the event and can discuss.
  • Project event: In the project event, students work on a project topic in individual or group work under supervision of a lecturer.

The achievement of the aims of study is dependent on the participation in classes as well as the accompanying self-study.

3.3.3 Mandatory attendance

If specified in the module descriptions, exercises, seminars and internships require compulsory attendance according to § 6b of the Framework Examination Regulations (Rahmenprüfungsordnung Bachelor / Master):

  • For courses where regular or active participation of the candidates in the course is required to achieve the learning objective, compulsory attendance may be compulsory, provided specific techniques, didactics, knowledge and skills are taught in the specific course in pure self-study can not be learned or only with considerable restrictions. The corresponding types of events are specified in the study program-specific examination and study regulations (SPSO) and must be identified as such in the respective module description. The requirement of regular attendance is deemed met if no more than 20 percent of the sessions of the course were missed without excuse. Also during the study excursions can be carried out, in which to achieve the learning objective is to participate. If the requirement of regular participation is not fulfilled, no admission to the module examination takes place.
  • Absence is always to be excused before the start of the event or the excursion, stating the reason (usually by e-mail); If this is not possible in individual cases, the apology must be made immediately afterwards. If the lecturer does not find a valid reason for not attending, the absence is considered as unjustified.
  • Can the candidate make a written statement and make it convincing that for reasons beyond his control (eg own illness, care for a sick or otherwise needy close relative, pregnancy, death of a close relative) have come to longer absences the lecturer decides whether the actual participation time can still be counted as regular participation. The same applies if it was not possible to take part in an excursion or only partially. With regard to the absence of time, the provision of an adequate equivalence performance can be specified. The nature of this compensatory benefit will be determined by the instructor at its sole discretion. The time required to provide them may not exceed twice the duration of the missed teaching time.
  • If the requirement of regular participation is not met by the candidate and no equivalence service can be provided, this must be reported in writing by the lecturer, stating the reasons, to the examination board (Prüfungsausschuss). The latter issues a decision, which must be provided with a legal remedy. Against the decision, the objection to the examination board is admissible.

3.4 Examinations

The composition of the modules to be attended, the type of examinations, the type, duration and scope of the module examinations, the regular exam date and the credit points to be achieved follow from the examination and study plan and the module descriptions. The final exam (master thesis and colloquium) is part of the Master's examination.

In particular, the following examinations are used:

written examinations

  • Report / Documentation: A report (also documentation) is a factual representation of an event or the structured presentation of facts. A report can be in the form of a portfolio. A portfolio is an orderly collection of written documents or own works. Examples of reports are: internship documentation, interviews, research reports, journalistic articles and literature reports.
  • Essay: An essay is a short essay in which a limited topic is discussed in an over-the-topical and informal way. It is more about the development of a guiding idea or a preliminary idea than the stringent presentation of complex content. The essay must satisfy the substantive objectivity and identify sources of quotes or suggestions.
  • Homework: A homework is a written elaboration on a given topic or the written processing of a task. Students should be able to demonstrate that they can tap sources of literature within a limited space of time, that they can present reflected texts in their own words in an independent context of argumentation and that they can independently and completely work on tasks. Possible special forms of a term paper may in particular be a case study / case analysis, a lesson draft / lesson design, a research exposition or a design draft. In addition to the housework, a presentation of the topic may be required.
  • Exam: In an exam, the students have to work under written supervision in a given time without or with limited resources.
  • Protocol: A protocol is an accurate, essentially transcript of the course of an investigation, an experiment or the course of an event.

oral examinations

  • Colloquium: Questions will be asked by a knowledgeable auditorium following a presentation of the student's own work.
  • Oral examination: In an oral examination, students should answer questions on one or more examination topics orally.
  • Presentation: A presentation is a presentation on a scientific topic and summarizes the research results, the results of the study and / or the results of a literature study. With the help of a sensible use of media essential contents of the used literature should be briefly presented, explained and questions formulated for further discussion. In addition to the presentation, a handout, a thesis paper or a written version of the presentation may be required.

practical examinations

  • Practical Examination: In a practical examination, students should demonstrate competences for performing professional or professional activities or their own practical, sporting or artistic abilities. Possible forms of practical exams include: school practice exam, bedside exam, role play, simulation game, moot court, sports exam, music exam.
  • Project work: The project work is an open type of examination with a high degree of freedom. Project work should be done individually or by several students within one semester. The basis for the examination is both the result of the project work as well as its documentation and the process of the group work itself. The results of the work can, for example, be presented in a portfolio.

Within one module, study achievements may be a prerequisite for the module examination. The prerequisites may be evaluated and graded but may not affect the final module grade. 

Prerequisites can be:

  • presentations
  • structured self-learning
  • project reports
  • regular participation in courses
  • Exercise certificate / Exercises: The solution of exercises serves to test the performance level of the students even during the lecture period and usually takes place without supervision.
  • Programming projects: are project work in which the students show that they have understood the subject matter and can apply it creatively. For this they independently carry out programming work, which will be presented and evaluated in the course of the event in accordance with the instructor.
  • Simulation projects: are project works in which the students show that they have understood the subject matter and can apply it creatively. For this they independently carry out work, which will be presented and evaluated in the course of the event in accordance with the teacher's instructions.
  • Colloquium: An expert audience will ask questions following a presentation of an independent work of the student.
  • Laboratory experiments: During the internship experiments are to be carried out independently and documented in a protocol. The protocol is checked and evaluated.
  • Project work: are written works in which the students show by means of independent work that they have understood the subject matter and can apply it creatively.

Specific prerequisites can be referenced in the respective module descriptions as well as the examination and study plan.

The course-related module examinations will be taken during the specified examination period. The examination period of a semester begins immediately after the lecture period and ends at the end of the semester.

By way of derogation, the module examinations in the form of abstracts, presentations, reports and project work may be taken during the course of the event if the students are informed at the latest in the first lecture week about the type of examination applicable to them, their scope and the respective deadline. In agreement between students and examiners, examinations may be held at other times, subject to the deadlines and application modalities specified in the framework examination regulations (Rahmenprüfungsordnung Bachelor / Master).

The declaration of withdrawal of the application for module examinations must be made in writing to the student office. The same applies to the application for the evaluation of a module examination as a free test.

In the case of the last examination attempt, the examiner decides whether an oral examination should be carried out in deviation to the form of examination specified in the module handbook. This selection must be made uniform for all students of a semester.

In the case of a change in a module description, repeat examinations must be taken in accordance with the module description in the version that applied to the examination to be repeated.

3.5 Individual part-time study

The student may declare to the Examination Board (Prüfungsausschuss) no later than two weeks before the beginning of a semester that in the following two semesters, he / she will only receive approximately the amount of work due to his or her work or family responsibilities in education, care and nursing Half of the working time for her / his studies. The application must specify which of the intended modules or module parts are not provided and in which subsequent semesters the corresponding offered modules or module parts are to be made up. If the examination committee approves the application, it may provide for the retrofitting of modules or module parts other than those specified in the application, in particular if this is necessary to ensure proper study. In hardship cases, the application can also be made at a later date.

The application must be sent to the examination board (Prüfungsausschuss) and submitted to the study office (Studienbüro). If the decision differs from the application, the student is to be heard in advance. The application can be withdrawn up to two months after the start of the semester.

In the case of approval, one semester is not counted towards the standard period of study and, accordingly, is disregarded in the calculation of the periods specified in § 9 and § 10 of the Framework Examination Regulations (Rahmenprüfungsordnung Bachelor / Master). During part-time studies, examinations other than those specified in the decision of the Examination Board can not be effectively taken; a double study during this time is inadmissible. Otherwise, the rights and obligations of the students concerned remain unaffected.

Each student can use the scheme a maximum of two times.
