Study Schedule

Seats in profile modules with limited capacity are distributed on the basis of the study schedules. Bachelor students create their study schedule by the end of the second semester, Master students during the course of their first semester. Detailed information on the study schedule and a step-by-step guide for FlexNow is provided on an extra page.

>> Study Schedule

>> direct link to FlexNow

In the profile module plan 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 profile module plan?

Master students create their profile module plan in FlexNow during their first semester.


How do I create a profile module plan?

Before you create your personal profile module plan 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.

>> English Master Degree Course Modules (.pdf)


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 profile module plan into FlexNow?

The profile module plan 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.

>> FlexNow guide "FlexNow for faculty 09" (.pdf)

>> direct link to FlexNow


Can I change my profile module plan?

Modules which are not completed and not yet registered for examination can be exchanged in the profile module plan. 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 profile module plan.


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 have to register directly in Stud.IP. These modules shall not be listed in your profile module plan. 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. For the exams in additional modules you register at the examination office not via FlexNow.

Deadlines for exam registrations

Each semester, the examination committee determines three examination periods and the corresponding deadlines for registration, e.g. registration during the 1st registration period --> examination during the 1st examination period.

>> Deadlines


Registration for examinations in FlexNow

Faculty 09 students register for examinations via the electronic system FlexNow. Deregistration from examinations is also possible in FlexNow. The illustrated FlexNow guide explains how the registration for examination works.

>> FlexNow guide "FlexNow for faculty 09" (.pdf)

>> direct link to FlexNow


Examination periods

In faculty 09, three examination periods are fixed each semester:

  • The first period lasts two weeks and extends from the last lecture week to the first week of the non-lecture period.
  • The second examination period is the week before the lecture period of the following semester starts.
  • The third examination period is the 6th week of the lecture period in the following semester.

Students register either for the first or the second examination period. For the third examination period, students cannot register themselves. As the third examination period is intended for re- and repeat examinations only, students are registered automatically in FlexNow.


Dates of exams

The study deanery organizes and determines the examination dates of the first and second examination period and publishes them on the faculty web site. The dates of the examinations in the third examination period are given in StudIP or can be directly obtained from the professor in charge of the module.

>> Dates of exams



In case you are not able to attend an examination due to illness, you have to submit a medical certificate to the examination office within three working days. Please remember to hand in the Supplement Sheet to a Medical Certificate also. If these conditions are fulfilled, the examination does not count a fail. You are automatically registered for the repeat examination in FlexNow in the next examination period.


Registration for an examination via the examination office by using forms or e-mails

  • is only possible in exceptional cases
  • you will not receive a confirmation from the examination office and the FlexNow transaction key will not be sent automatically
  • you promptly have to check your examination status yourself
  • a registration via e-mail has to contain:

    a. A sound reason to register via the examination office (e.g. problems with FLexNow or other serious problems

    b. Name, Matriculation No.

    c. Examination: Module Code and Module Title

    d. Indication of modules which can be changed into an optional additional module (module code and module title)
