Introductory and orientation period (STEOP)

Since the winter semester 2011/12, all bachelor-, teacher accreditation- and diploma programmes include a introductory and orientation period, the so called Studieneingangs- und Orientierungsphase (STEOP).

The introductory and orientation period provides you an insight into your study and helps you asses on the one hand, whether  the study programme content corresponds with your personal expectations and on the other hand, whether you can meet the requirements of the study.

Excluded from the introductory and orientation period are the bachelor programmes Psychology, Mass Media and Communication Science, Sports Science and the teacher accreditation programme's subject Physical Education and Sport.

The introductory and orientation period at a glance

  • The introductory and orientation period contains either 15 or 30 ECTS, according to the study programme.
  • Students should pass the exams of the introductory and orientation period in their first semester.
  • Further courses can not be attended before the introductory and orientation period has been completed.
  • There is a total of at least two examination dates offered.
  • The exams can be repeated twice.
  • All examination dates are set in a way that students can continue their study in the next semester after having completed the introductory and orientation period.
  • When studying a teacher accreditation programme, both the introductory and orientation period of one subject and the introductory and orientation period of the pedagogic education have to be completed in order to be allowed to pass exams of other courses.
