Modules – Lectures and Other Teaching Units – Sources of information

The teaching units of a degree course of study at TU Bergakademie Freiberg are called modules. In the module handbook (“Modulhandbuch”) you can find detailed information to each module, such as: the description of the content of each module, the number of credit points, the lecturer’s name, the semester in which a module takes place, the components of the module (eg lecture, seminar, exercise, excursion …) and the recommended accompanying literature. The module handbook of each degree program can be found on its program website.

Recommended steps to make a study plan: First choose from the available Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme, second look for suitable modules that are available in the specific semester you are planning to study in Freiberg (summer or winter semester) in it’s module handbook.

Modules Taught in English Language by Study Program

Status: 21 March 2023

  1. Above you find the list of modules of each study programme taught in English.
  2. Available in which semester? – Each module description contains the information whether a module is available in winter semester or in summer semester – see the line “Frequency: yearly in the winter semester/summer semester”.
  3. Duration of a module – The duration of each module can be one or more semesters. It is indicated in the module description (e. g. Duration: 1 semester). If your study stay in Freiberg ends after one semester, you should not select a two-semester module for your Learning Agreement.
  4. Bachelor or Master module? – Each module description displays a module code in the first line (e. g. MetMat. MA. Nr. 3213). The module code contains the letters “BA.” or “MA.” which indicates whether it is a Bachelor or a Master module.
    Since only Master’s programmes and no Bachelor’s programmes taught in English are offered at the TUBAF, English-language bachelor’s modules are an exception.
  5. The proportion of non-subject-related modules from other degree programmes may not exceed 10 ECTS credits.
  6. TUBAF cannot guarantee that you will be able to take all the modules selected for the Learning Agreement. Reason: The times for all courses in the new semester are only set and published a few weeks before the semester begins. At the time of your application, the course times are not yet fixed. Therefore, there may be time overlaps. In this case, you will have to switch to alternative courses.
