Fakultät für Kulturwissenschaften - Studium


Our university uses the ECTS credit system. One credit is equivalent to a workload of approximately 30 hours. For most our faculty’s courses you can only obtain 3 or 6 credit points (ECTS). Whether you can achieve 3 or 6 ECTS points depends on the assignment you choose to complete. An assignment with 3 ECTS points, for instance, could be a presentation, an essay, writing a short paper etc. An assignment with 6 ECTS points could be a combination of different assignments or a term paper with a length of 15 to 25 pages.

It is up to you to speak to your individual lecturers about the assignments that can be completed in order to acquire either 3 or 6 ECTS points. The lecturers can tell you what you have to do to get the ECTS points you need.

Do not get confused by "modules"! Only our degree students study using the "module-structure", meaning that they acquire their ECTS points by completing “modules”, which contain two or three courses. For you, “modules” are irrelevant in Arts and Humanities (please note however that they are important if you study in other faculties apart from the Faculty of Arts and Humanities). You get your ECTS points and grades for every course you pass. That also means that you are free to choose courses regardless of the modules you see in our online registration system (PAUL).

If you also take German courses, please make sure you take this into consideration when choosing other courses as well, because the German courses do require a considerable workload in order to be completed successfully.

Make sure that you are informed about whether your home university accepts the German lessons as a part of your curriculum. If so, the ECTS you receive when passing the course(s) are credited to the 30 ECTS that most exchange students have to acquire during their time abroad.
