Problems of studyability


If you have difficulties with the studyability of your subject, for example due to overlapping exam dates, unfair behaviour by lecturers or simply questions about your courses, you should first write to your Fachschaftsrat or Fachgruppe. If you have concerns that require university-wide solutions, please contact our Department of Internal Affairs.
