FAQ (Lectures)

Target Group
The lectures of the WWU IT are open to all students and employees of WWU. If there are specific professional requirements for successful participation in the course, you will find these in the corresponding course descriptions on our website.

Course Formats
The courses take place regularly as semester courses or as intensive courses during the semester break. In addition to providing theoretical content, there is also the possibility of practical training in the computer lab or studio.

The lectures of the WWU IT are given in German. If you want to participate as an exclusively English-speaking student, please contact the teachers before.

Credit Points
If your study regulations provide for participation in the General Studies, you can earn credit points for our lectures. The requirement for this is successful participation in the course and the exam. Whether a course is open for General Studies can be found on the corresponding course website. Further information on the Exam Regulations for General Studies can be found on the website of the Study Coordination Office. If you are in doubt as to whether the course is recognised in your subject, please contact the examination office that is responsible for you.

Students in Computer Science Studies
Students in Computer Sciences can count some selected courses of the WWU IT for the General Studies. Further information can be obtained from your student advisor.

Registration / Cancellation
On our website you have the possibility to register online. In the section "My WWU IT Lectures" you will find an overview of the courses for which you are registered. There you can also check your position on the list and unsubscribe from courses. A pre-registration via the Electronic Courses Catalogue is not necessary. The key factors for the course registration are your position on the list of participants and your presence on the first course session.

Waiting List
Some courses have a limited number of participants. However, you can also register for lectures that are fully booked and thus be put on the waiting list. In the "My WWU IT Lectures" section, your position on the list of participants is displayed. If other participants whose position is before yours from the list unsubscribe, you move up automatically. Your position on the list and your appearance on the first day of the course are decisive for the final allocation of places. Even if you only occupy a place on the waiting list, we recommend that you show up on the first day of the course, as some course places may become vacant due to the absence of registered participants.

If an examination is offered, this is noted on the corresponding website. The registration for exams as well as the cancellation of exams can be done via the central exam management tool QISPOS. You find more information about exam registration via QISPOS on the QISPOS help pages. Students who do not wish to take the exam as part of the General Studies should contact the lecturers directly.

Attendance Certificates
After successfully completing the course, the teachers will issue you with a certificate of attendance, which you can pick up at the service desk of the WWU IT building at Einsteinstraße 60 during opening hours. To receive a certificate of participation (without grade/ without CP) it is not necessary to take the exam.
