General notes

Disclaimer: No responsibility is taken for the accuracy or completeness of this information.

  • Inform yourself about the respective deadlines (module booking and cancellation, submission of written work, etc.), set reminders in your calendar.
  • Note that modules in the Minor Informatics (INF) are offered only in the Fall semester.
  • Always plan enough buffer time (several days for printing, binding and mailing, at least 1 day for electronic submission – the internet is guaranteed to fail exactly when you want to upload your work 10 seconds before the deadline)
  • Follow the required order of certain modules: Masterʼs Project > Masterʼs Thesis
  • Read the corresponding fact sheets promptly when you start a self-study module (fact sheets are revised from time to time; the version currently published on the IfI website applies)
  • Check the "at a glance" slides for your MSc program (below)
