Step 3: Receive credit points from the Group
Students receive credit points for participating in an X-Student Research Group for one semester. The credit points can be credited in the interdisciplinary compulsory elective area (üWP) / in the free elective area / in the compulsory elective area / in the study area General Occupational Preparation (ABV - see recommendation for acceptance upon request) for both Bachelor's and Master's programs. In addition, for some compulsory elective modules there are blanket crediting decisions at the examination boards.
Upon application to the responsible examination board, there is the possibility of individual crediting in one's own degree program. Possibilities of crediting should be clarified in advance with the responsible examination office. You as a student are responsible for this, i.e. you must contact your responsible examination office yourself.
Module for X-Student Research Groups
The credit points are credited via the module "Research Project with Junior Researchers - X-Student Research Groups". The module has a scope of 6 LP and is mapped in the ÜWP area of the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Please have a look at the module description for X-Student Research Groups linked here.
If a two-semester participation in an X-Student Research Group is possible, 12 LP can be acquired. Please contact your lecturer in time.
Completion of the module for X-Student Research Groups
The module is considered successfully completed if all components have been successfully completed. This means that the module is completed without an examination. Successful completion includes active participation, working on a sub-question of the research project (in a small group, if necessary), preparing and presenting the research results according to the instructor's specifications, and a short, written reflection on the research process.
The lecturer confirms the module completion to the students with his/her signature. Three documents have to be handed over to the responsible examination office: (1) certificate for the successful completion of the module with the lecturer's signature, (2) module description as well as (3) project description. You will receive all three documents from your instructor at the end of the semester.
