Registration of Master's Thesis

When you register your Master's thesis in the ZPA, you will receive a form in which you enter the modules of your concentration.

The future advisor of your Master's thesis signs under the list, thus indicating to the ZPA that the allocation of modules to the concentration section is correct.

The ZPA transfers the concentration modules in its own list and cancels the ones you have completed from your list.

Please make sure that enough modules are present for the applied and pure mathematics sections. We recommend planning out your course of study early in advance.

Changing Application Subjects

If you wish to take another concentration in the Master course of study, that differs from the one you had in the Bachelor course of study, you must do the following:

  1. Submit an application to change your application subject to the examination board (an email to the department advisor with "I hereby request..." or "Hiermit beantrage ich.." is sufficient.
  2. You provide proof of modules you have already completed from the new application subject.
  3. The departmental advisor then creates a schedule based on this. He or she takes into consideration, that some modules in the next application subject require you to make up modules from the Bachelor course of study.
  4. You submit the the letter to the ZPA and the change is implemented.

If you are interested in switching, you should contact the departmental advisor immediately after enrolling in the Master course of study.

Cancellation Regulations

The following cancellation regulations apply to students who complete exams within the standard period of study:

The worst weighted module grades from the sections

  • Applied Mathematics
  • Pure Mathematics
  • Concentration Section
  • Application Subject

are not included in the calculation of the final grade. However all modules and their grades appear on the transcript.
