Step 3: Getting credit points for the X-Tutorial


In order for students to receive credit points for their participation in an X-Tutorial, the X-Tutorial must be offered as a research tutorial in the course catalogs of the four partner institutions. The credit points are awarded by the subject-specific supervisor of the X-Tutorial. Students can then have their credit points 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 relevant examination board, there is the possibility of individual crediting in your own degree program. Possibilities for credit transfer should be clarified in advance - ideally before or at the beginning of the semester - with the relevant examination office. Students are responsible for this themselves, i.e. they must contact the relevant examination office themselves.

Module for X-Tutorials

The credit points are credited via the module "Student Research Project - X-Tutorials". 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-Tutorials linked here.

If it is possible to participate in an X-Tutorial for two semesters, 12 CP can be acquired. Please contact the student project leader of your X-Tutorial in advance.

Completion of the module for X-Tutorials

The module is considered successfully completed when 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 specifications of the X-Tutorial supervisor (in agreement with the student project leaders).

Formal procedure

The X-Tutorial supervisor confirms the completion of the module 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, (2) module description as well as (3) project description. You will receive all three documents from the project leader of your X-Tutorial at the end of the semester.
