Fakultät für Chemie und Pharmazie

Orientation Program

Study program according to the examination and study rules of March 2009 (Semester 5-6)

During the final two semesters (Orientation Program) 5 Optional Modules (WP 1- WP 5) are offered in the fields of chemistry/biochemistry and biology. Herefrom, 2 modules are required (majors), each with 15 ECTS, and two lecture courses plus one lab course within the module. The major is chosen by attending the associated lab course.
15 ECTS in total are necessary in the Required Module P 12 arbitrary of a multitude of lectures. If more lectures than necessary are attended in the major, these may also be put into the P 12 module.
Both lectures in the Required Module P 11 (Tox/R) and the bachelor thesis are obligatory for all.

* Bothe lectures (1 und 2) of the module in Pharmacy have to be attended together, because there is an overall examination at the end of the WiSe (this can be the 5th or 7th semester!). If there are questions, please contact the Study program coordinator in pharmacy.

** The courses in Physics and Compuer Science cannot be attended individually, i.g. it is only possible to attend bothe, the lecture AND the exercise! Be aware of the course catalogoue! If there are questions, please contact the Studentensekretariat.
