  • Bachelor Cyber Security & Privacy
  • Master Informatik

First Year Students

If you are enrolled in a bachelor course, you do not have to register for courses of your FIRST semester. You are automatically registered for all compulsory courses of the first semester.

Missed the time slot for registration?

In general, every student of the Department of Computer Science must register for the courses within the above-mentioned period. A late registration is only possible in well-founded exceptional cases via E-Mail. Should this apply to you, please send an e-mail with your matriculation number, name of degree programme, the courses you wish to attend and  the reason for your belated registration to

Please note that some courses might already be overbooked so that there are no more places available.

Overbooked courses

If for some courses there are more registrations than places, places are allocated by drawing lots. Students who do not manage to enter the course are offered other courses within the same module. If students have stated alternative courses, we try to consider this.
