General Regulations, Examination Regulations and Curriculum, which were valid at the beginning of your studies, stay valid but may be object to updates. Automatic transition to more recent curricula or regulations will not occur.
ECTS credit points are used to estimate and compare workload for lectures/courses including preparation for their exams.
The grades for courses are weighted with their ECTS points to calculate the final grade of your studies - the more credit points a course has, the higher the influence on the final grade.
As a standard, when collecting 30 credit points per semester, the studies will be finished in the scheduled time (ger.: Regelstudienzeit). Yet, it is obligatory to complete the studies in double the amount of the Regelstudienzeit.
At the TUHH, bachelor studies are allocated 180 ECTS while master studies are allocated 120 ECTS points.
