Registration modalities:

Es ist uns ein besonderes Anliegen Diskussionen um Lehrveranstaltungsplätze zu vermeiden. Da für diese LVA die Nachfrage sehr groß ist und die Ressourcen begrenzt sind, gilt folgendes Vorgehen:

  • Es werden MEHR Fixplätze freigeschaltet, als Ressourcen verfügbar sind.

  • Wenn Sie einen bestätigten Platz haben, sind Sie in der LVA in diesem Semester dabei.

  • Es werden keine Plätze von der Warteliste nachbesetzt, denn der mögliche Ausfall an Personen ist in der freigeschalteten Fixplatzzahl bereits berücksichtigt.

Bitte schreiben Sie keine Mail mit der Bitte um zusätzliche Plätze.
