Successful participation

The MMRS lecture series is considered passed if 80% of the course modules have been completed.

If you extend your attendance over several semesters, the number of lectures in the semester of the first visit of a MMRS lecture is the basis for calculation.

Attended modules must be documented accordingly (when participating online like this semester, a download of the confirmation of participation - or - when attending a presence event, a confirmation of participation signed by the lecturer). When you have a "Logbuch" note 2 hours and enclose a printout of your confirmation/s of participation.

Here is how you get your confirmation of participation in this online course: The confirmation is available for download after completing a module (seen online lecture and answered quiz-questions) below the relevant content of the respective module.
