Questions about the course type

The X stands for excellence.

X-Student Research Groups are led by junior researchers. X-Tutorials are led by undergraduate students.

The course type according to the capacity regulation is a teaching research project (“Lehrforschungsprojekt”).

X-Tutorials are implemented in the form of research tutorials. They are not capacity neutral, but they are low capacity: They are typically not credited in one subject, but in the elective area: überfachlicher Wahlpflichtbereich (üWP) / freier Wahlbereich/ Wahlpflichtbereich/ Studienbereich Allgemeine Berufsvorbereitung (ABV). They are therefore not recognized for a specific course of study, but rather across the entire range of courses offered by the university. In coordination with the AG BUA Studierende and the BUA Büro, a specific module was developed for this credit.

No, this is not possible. The participating students receive credit points, the tutors are the teaching staff and are employed as student assistants for this purpose.

Yes, this is possible. However, you must clarify everything else yourself (or with the support of your subject-specific mentor) with your respective examination office.

Yes, this is possible. Due to the current pandemic situation, it can be assumed that the next semester will also take place as a hybrid semester, i.e. at least in parts digitally. Please take this into account when planning your X-Tutorial. In the qualification program, we will also prepare you for research under digital conditions.
