Information about Compulsory Elective Modules

Please note: Given the amount of elective compulsory modules and the differences between the ECMs of the different subjects, there is no detailed information about them in KLIPS 2.0. We therefore advise you to contact the institute/department etc. of the module who will be able to provide you with more detailed information. 

Does my subject offer elective compulsory modules?

Check in the "Curriculum Support" of the Registration Status application to see if compulsory elective modules are offered within the framework of your degree programme.

1. Click on the application Registration Status on your business card to open it.

2. To see the curriculum of your subject, click on the corresponding curriculum number in the column "curriculum".

3. If the check boxes in the column shows the option of  "Gew" (selected), your degree programme has elective compulsory modules.

Please note: If nothing has been selected, a yellow exclamation mark will indicate this. In addition, there are check boxes with a W beside them for each ECM that can be selected. In the example above, there are the options of "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit im Fach Musikwissenschaft" und "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit in einem anderen Fach". In addition to this, there are four modules to chose from within the framework of the Aufbaumodule. The number results from the ECTS credits that are shown in the corresponding column. Research modules as well as colloquia are obligatory and therefore will not appear as options. 


How do I chose a elective compulsory module?

  1. Please ask the institute/department of where you study about elective compulsive modules. 
  2. You can either:

    • have the ECM of your choice entered into KLIPS 2.0 or
    • get instructions about selecting ECMs in KLIPS 2.0 yourself. Each institute/department has its own procedure.  

Please note: After you select a ECM in KLIPS 2.0, you cannot change this yourself. In addition, other options in your curriculum will no longer be available to you (see screenshot and information below). Changing anything after you have selected a ECM has to be done by the department/institute where you study. 

Please note: A green tick indicates that you have selected a module. A checkbox under the tick will be visible but this will no longer be active and cannot be changed by you. In the example above, "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit im Fach Musikwissenschaft" has been selected and "Studienprofil mit Masterarbeit in einem anderen Fach" is no longer an option. In addition to this, within the framework of the Aufbaumodule, "Interdisziplinäre Zugänge zur Musik" and "Empirische Musikforschung" have been selected. With the exception of "Forschungsmodul" and "Kolloquium",  all other modules are no longer options. 


Do I have to do a compulsory elective module if I register for a course or an exam? 

Registering for a course in KLIPS 2.0 does not mean that you have to take a certain ECM. 

Please note: As soon as you register for an exam with the framework of an ECM, you are committing to this ECM. Changing anything after you have done this is no longer possible and only the department/institute where you study can retract or edit this.
