The registration as an elective is only possible by means of a registration at the examination office using a “yellow sheet”. For courses with a limited number of students, a signature of the person responsible for the module is required, which guarantees that there are sufficient seats in the course. Only after receiving the signature the module can be registered at the examination office. The registration must take place within the registration deadline of the respective course and there are no exceptions..
The admission process is course-specific. Please refer to the respective course website. Students for which the course represents a compulsory subject will always be allowed to take the course. This is intended to reduce the probability that students will not be able to complete their studies within the designated period of study.
Since this information varies each semester, please refer to the course catalogue for current information on time and space: www.tu-berlin.de/lsf/
All documents are stored on the corresponding course pages on the ISIS system of the TU Berlin. Access to these course pages is password-protected. The passwords will be provided during the first lecture of the respective course. Do not share these passwords with students or externals who are not registered for the course.
The official registration for a module is primarily done via the QISPOS system. If you are unable to register via this system, you must register at the examination office using a “yellow sheet”. The deadlines for registering for the examination will be shared during the first lecture.
All exchange students: Please register using the application form on the respective course website. No further registration is needed. You will be able to collect your Schein (via mail, E-Mail, or in person) after the exam results are published.
Please note that you have to be formally accepted according to the application procedure of the course in order to be considered for grading.
In general, attendance is not mandatory. However, it is highly recommended to attend both lectures and exercises, as the exams usually include questions related to the lectures as well as the exercises. Furthermore, for some courses there might be graded portfolio elements that are based on the content of the exercise sessions. Finally, it is simply a question of genuine motivation and politeness to join the sessions, as we have many excellent external speakers and guests sharing their knowledge and experience without any obligation.
For all portfolio elements in the courses we apply the official grading scheme of the Faculty of Economics and Management:
In this case, you have to submit a medical certificate to the Examination Office and inform us informally about the sickness. If you do not provide a medical certificate to the Examniation office, the portfolio element “written assignment” will be regarded as not passed (0 points). Depending on the grading scheme of the respective course your final grade will then be determined.
Please note that recission from a module is not possible after a part of the portfolio examination has been completed.
There is no “Pass” or “No Pass” for the elements of the portfolio examinations. In each portfolio element, a certain amount of points can be reached. All points are summed up and weighed according to the weight of the portfolio element. Subsequently, the grade is calculated based on the faculty’s official grading scheme.
The portfolio examination consist of:
If you receive full points for the presentation and Multiple Choice test, you will still pass the course, even if you for example receive 0 points for the final exam.
