Module Handbook 2015

The Study and Exam Regulations (Studien- und Prüfungsordnung; StuPO) are the foundation of the LAS program. Please note: The English versions are not binding and for convenience only. 

The Module Handbook 2020 further specifies the Study and Exam Regulations. Here you can find the Module Handbook 2015.

The Admissions Regulations (Auswahlsatzung) define the LAS application and admissions procedure. 

These new LAS Admissions Regulations were necessary due to new provisions of the Baden-Württemberg Higher Education Admissions Law (Hochschulzulassungsgesetz) and passed by the University Senate on March 31, 2020. We will shortly update our application guidelines accordingly.
