Development and Revision

Since 2007 the University has established a standardized process for revisions of existing and for the development of new degree programs.

The Program Development Office acts as supporting and advisory interface function between the faculties and the central facilities of the Presidents' Office. We organize and coordinate the standardized process of development and revisions of degree programs and bring together the responsible parties (faculties and departments, student services, legal services) to ensure that the discipline- and field-specific, educational, administrative, legal and strategic perspectives are all taken into account throughout the process.

The timing of the process depends on university-wide administrative dates such as the information day, application for studies, publishing of the academic curriculum for the online course catalog, etc.

Further information on dates and deadlines, on the process, as well as the application form (all German) can be found in the download box below.

For general questions or additional information regarding development of new or revisions of existing degree programs do not hesitate to contact us.
