Information from the course guidance service

General information

with many important links have been compiled on the faculty pages. Nevertheless, the most frequent links especially for Medical Informatics are collected again below. In addition, the short compilation for first semester students can be found here for printing.


Current information is published on the Faculty IM blackboard, e.g. cancellation of lectures, room relocations, etc.


The current timetables can be found at Webuntis -> Stundenplan -> Semester

Moodle course of the study group medical informatics

A separate Moodle course was set up for the study group. There, current job offers of the Gesellschaft für Medizinische Informatik are prepared, but also information about events such as the Christmas party of Medical Informatics and the RCBE Christmas Symposium is provided. You will receive your password at one of the information events organised by the course advisor and by email request to the course advisor.

For students of Medical Informatics starting in the winter semester 2021/2022, a special Moodle course has been established. Please enroll yourself in this course if and only if you belong to this study group.

General scientific elective courses

The offer of the so-called AW subjects can be viewed here. AW subjects serve to develop social and non-technical competence. For this reason, all modules that do not belong to computer science in the broadest sense are allowed in medical computer science (new SPO). They can therefore be freely chosen from the entire AW range of courses with the following exceptions:

  • Modules from the field of computer science
  • Modules of the VHB of the subject area Internet competence or other computer science related topics

Modules in presentation and moderation as well as languages, especially English, are certainly useful for your studies.


Lecture-free days, examination period, registration period, etc. Such information can be found in the schedules for the winter semester 2021/2022.

Module descriptions and elective courses

of the current semester can be found in the module manuals and additional documents for the elective courses compulsory modules.

Legislative documents

in which you can read about your rights and obligations, are above all


Participation in an examination requires timely registration (see timetables). Registration is done electronically in the QIS-System. Examinations are usually held during the official examination period (see timetables). If you do not wish to take part in an examination after all, there is currently no cancellation of registration; you simply do not take the examination.

Admission to examination

In some modules there are course-related performance certificates. The lecturer determines which credits must be earned during the semester for admission to the exams. Details are communicated by the lecturer in the first lecture. If you are registered for an examination and do not have an admission ticket, this will be announced on a notice board.


It is possible, but not advisable. In the end, all modules must be passed for a successful study. For orientation modules, postponing is limited (see orientation modules). In addition, after 9 semesters, all modules that have not yet been taken up by then will be given a "deadline 5".

Illness during the examination period

If you fall ill during the examination period or have to cancel an examination due to illness, a medical certificate is required in any case. If you are obliged to take part in an examination (e.g. orientation examination, repeat examination), you should apply for a period of grace. Details on how to deal with illness during the examination period can be found here.


If you fail an exam, you must take the next repeat exam in the next semester. Non-attendance results in a "deadline 5". If you fail the first repeat examination, the second repeat examination within 2 semesters after the first repeat examination is to be used. A third repeat examination (fourth attempt) is possible once for modules from the 2nd semester onwards.

This information is without guarantee. Only the legal documents in their current version are legally binding (see legal documents).

Orientation Modules

In medical informatics mathematics 1 and programming 1 are orientation modules. These modules must be taken for the first time by the end of the second semester. Otherwise a "Frist-5" is assigned. The deadlines then run accordingly (see examinations).

Bachelor Theses

A bachelor thesis can be supervised by any professor of the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics. A distinction is made between internal work in one of the faculty laboratories and external work at a company or research institute. Contact a supervisor in time before the planned start of the bachelor thesis and talk to him/her about the procedure and organization. If you are interested in writing a bachelor thesis at ReMIC, please see this page. Please follow the formal procedure for registering your bachelor thesis and remember to attend lectures at the bachelor seminar in good time. You will find the lecture notes confirming your participation here.

Semester abroad

A semester abroad is not compulsory, but is strongly supported by the faculty. A semester abroad will give you a new experience that will help you in your personal development and from which you will benefit throughout your life. Furthermore, your language skills will be improved.

In principle, the time is arbitrary, but the period between the 4th and 7th semester is suitable. It is particularly easy to organise a stay abroad during the practical semester (5th semester). But also in other semesters you will get all the support you can think of through generous recognition practice and organisational help. Important: Prepare your stay abroad as early as possible!

The Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics maintains numerous relationships with partner universities abroad. In addition, there is a moodle page with information on the topic of a stay abroad. Furthermore, there are regular information events organized by the Faculty's International Relations Officer.

Officials of the faculty

are important contacts for various questions. Here you can find the current functionaries.

Questions to ...

  • general problems during your studies: Talk to me
  • Problems with lecturers: Speak directly to the lecturer and, if necessary, to the Dean of Studies
  • Problems on exams: Talk to the chairman of the examination board and/or the Examination and Internship Office (Examination Office)
  • Questions about studying abroad: Talk to the International Officer
  • Questions about the internship semester: Talk to the internship officer

Consultation hours for course guidance
