Moodle Course

Prospective students, current applicants* for the B.Sc. in Computer Science and students in the B.Sc. in Computer Science are asked to register for the Moodle course of the advisory service for Bachelor in Computer Science. A lot of information is already provided there. If you have questions, please check the course first to see if they have already been answered. Please do not only use the search in the forums, but also – if available – access the corresponding self-study units (represented by a “chest” icon, e.g. “Working with the study and examination plan”). This way you can potentially find the answer you are looking for yourself and do not have to wait for our reaction via email.
