Are there any other events on the topic of the beginning of studies?
Every year in the winter semester, the Student Council Initiative for Pedagogy (Pädini) organizes "Ersti-Tage" for first-year students. This is an opportunity to get to know the city, the students and the university.

What should I base my decision for the minor on?
The choice of minor must be made individually; there is no blanket answer to this. For example, you can base your decision for your minor on personal interests or choose a subject that is complementary or opposite to the study of education. In addition, you could choose it based on your career aspirations.

I didn't get into my seminar - now what?
If you register regularly via WueStudy for your events with three priorities, you are guaranteed a place - even if it is not your preferred date. Subsequent enrollment or a new assignment are not possible.
Is a change of minor or major possible?
Yes, a change of minor means a change of program or subject. In the case of an admission-free minor subject, you can simply change. Please note, however, whether the minor subject must be taken every semester. In the case of a minor subject with restricted admission, you must apply regularly and in due time. If you have any questions, please contact the academic advisor. If you wish to change your major in order to study in major-major combination in the future, you must reapply for Pedagogy and, if applicable, for the other major as well. You can receive credit for work already completed in pedagogy within the first semester.

How often may exams/homework be written?
