You can choose any number of lectures independent of each other. All credits are earned exclusively through the respective examinations (1or proof of attendance). Registration periods for each exam can be found in the course catalogue when you click on the respective course. The above mentioned exams (except 1) are offered every semester. We do not offer follow-up exams within the same semester.

Exams that cover the subject matter of 2 partial lectures can only be taken as a whole. There are no separate exams for partial lectures of a module.

2The module Perception and Cognition is an exception that allows you to write either the complete exam (8 CPs) or a partial exam (Perception or Cognition with 4 CPs). It is not possible to write 2 partial exams!

3The partial exam Developmental Psychology 1 can be written by students from other disciplines (e.g. in the Bachelor of Education) as a separate part of the overall exam "Developmental Psychology". The partial exam is rewarded with 4 CPs. When registering, please make sure that you register for the individual exam (not the overall exam).

4The exam can be written by students from other disciplines as a separate part of the overall examination "Work and Health Psychology". When registering, please make sure that you register for the individual exam (not the overall exam).
