Credit Points ECTS Half-week Courses

Please note: It is possible to give female students credit points (according to ETCS) for their performance in half-week courses. Please be sure to indicate what the requirements are for awarding a credit point (ETCS system) in your course. The prerequisite for the awarding of credit points (ECTS) is at least a Bachelor's degree from a university as the lecturer's degree.

The awarding of credit points (according to ECTS) is based on the semester hours to be completed, preparatory and follow-up work, as well as the course content. As a rule, the workload of a credit point (ECTS) comprises 30 units of 45 minutes each. The course hours (HW = 16 units) are included, which means that the participants must complete an additional 14* 45 minutes of work for one credit point (ECTS). This can be done in advance e.g. as preparation of a presentation for the course or afterwards as elaboration of a topic of the course or as exercise task(s).

A maximum of 1 credit point (ECTS) can therefore be awarded for a half-week course. Credit points (ECTS) are awarded in cooperation with the programme committee and Furtwangen University.

Regular deadline for participants: 4 weeks after the end of the course.

Regular submission of results by lecturers: 6 weeks after the end of the course.

Information on Awarding of Grades

Grading is only possible upon prior request and cannot be demanded retroactively.

The following grade distribution is possible at HFU:

1; 1.3 = very good = an excellent performance;

1.7; 2; 2.3 = good = a performance that is significantly above average;

2.7; 3; 3.3 = satisfactory = a performance that meets average requirements;

3.7; 4 = sufficient = a performance which, despite its shortcomings, still meets the requirements;  

5 = insufficient = a performance that no longer meets the requirements due to considerable deficiencies.

Reimbursement for taking the examination performance

Lecturers whose half-week course has the character of a lecture may be reimbursed for taking the examination performance in accordance with the information sheet on teaching assignments, provided that the participant is a student at Furtwangen University.

Certificate of participation

Certificates without credit point - or with already completed processing of the necessary services - can be issued to the participants on site after successful course attendance. The instructor will note this on a certificate list. The certificate list and the attendance list are handed in by the lecturer to the F.I.T. network. Outstanding credit points will be confirmed by the lecturer after six weeks (or later, depending on the agreement between lecturer and participant) and noted on the certificate, which will then be sent to the participants by the F.I.T network.



Information on the Teaching Assignment

As soon as it is known whether a course will take place, the lecturers will be informed, but no later than four weeks before the course begins.

For your work as a private lecturer, you will then receive a teaching contract from Furtwangen University (information sheet on the teaching contract), the teaching work will be paid. Please send the statement of account promptly to the Netzwerk F.I.T.
