In the study schedule you define which profile modules you want to attend in which semester. On the one hand it is important that you have an overview of the modules you are planning to attend (matching module combinations, setup of your personal schedule – no overlaps) and on the other hand it is the basis for distributing seats in modules with limited capacity.
When do I have to create my study schedule?
Master students create their study schedule in FlexNow during their first semester.
How do I create a study schedule?
Before you create your personal study schedule you should check the study schedules of your study program and the module directory. On the basis of this information you choose your profile modules. Please make sure that the modules in one semester do not overlap and please also take into consideration the prerequisites of modules as given in the module description.

Where can I get advice before choosing my profile modules?
For each study program of faculty 09 a professor is responsible to give advice on questions regarding the choice of profile modules.
- M.Sc. Agrobiotechnology
Prof. Dr. Dr. Peter Kämpfer
- M.Sc. Insect Biotechnology and Bioresources
Prof. Dr. Andreas Vilcinskas
- M.Sc. Transition Management
Prof. Dr. Martin Petrick
How do I enter my study schedule into FlexNow?
The study schedule is created by pre-registrating modules in FlexNow. This is done by allocating the requested modules to a semester. For detailed instructions please use the manual below.

Can I change my study schedule?
Modules which are not completed and not yet registered for examination can be exchanged in the study schedule. In case you do not get a seat in a limited module, you need to update the semester allocation to a later semester. Completed modules cannot be removed from the study schedule.
I want to attend more module than I have to – additional modules (freiwillige Zusatzleistungen)
If you want to attend modules in addition to those given in the study program you may choose optional additional modules in FlexNow. These modules shall not be listed in your study schedule. Additional modules which are completed successfully will be certified in an extra document to the final transcript of records. Should you fail an optional module or not attend the examination after registration, you will not be excluded from the study program. This will only happen in modules which are registered for examination as regular modules. Modules successfully completed or in an ongoing examination procedure cannot be removed from the study schedule. Hence, you have to decide whether to take the module as a regular profile module or as an additional module when you register for examination. You need to update your study schedule correspondingly.
