Dates and Deadlines
Allocation of remaining places on courses of the English Department for the winter semester 2018/19
For students in higher semesters of their degree programme (3rd semester onwards):
If you have missed the HIS-LSF online registration deadline for courses offered by the English Department, or if there were other reasons why you have not received a place on such courses, please do the following:
• For lectures, places can still be allocated via the normal HIS-LSF registration process, even after the deadline. So please use HIS-LSF.
• For other seminars, practical skills courses / Übungen etc., the English Department’s Student Advisory Service (room 121 and 120) offers designated times for allocating the remaining places on courses. These times are given below – please read this information carefully beforehand:
Please note that we will give preference to students who are considered cases of hardship [Härtefälle, e.g. students who have a disability or chronic illness; students who have young children to look after; students providing nursing case for close relatives (Studierende, die nahe Angehörige pflegen), competitive athletes (Leistungssportler*innen) etc., please also bring a written confirmations, birth certificates etc.] and need to arrange some changes to their schedules. These students can come to our office hours on Tuesday, 10 July (9.30-12 & 13-15). If these students cannot make it during any of those times, they may also stop by our office later during the week or call us before Tuesday.
Students who are experiencing time table clashes (e.g. because they were given two courses that take place at the same time, so that they have to replace one of these courses with another), and students who did not receive a place due to technical problems (although they registered on time and selected the right number of alternative options that the LSF system required – e.g. they selected 3 parallel courses/groups where possible and still did not get a place), must come and see us between Wednesday, 11 July and Thursday, 12 July (Wed 9.30–12 & 13-15, Thu 9.30–12 & 13–15).
Students who did not get places due to a fault of their own (e.g. because they did not select enough alternative options when selecting courses on HIS-LSF; or because they missed the HIS-LSF deadline) must stop by our office on Friday, 13 July (9.30–12).
