Direction of Studies

To execute the study-related regulations in the first instance the Senate established an organ with the functional name of "Study Director" as a monocratic organ. It is based on the University Law of 2002 (§ 19 (2), Line 2 of the University Law 2002).

A person entrusted with matters concerning the operation of courses should be appointed to the post of Study Director. The person should have adequate knowledge of educational laws.




The Study Director's tasks specifically include the implementation of educational law-related procedures and the issuance of orders in all matters concerning educational law. In designing the tasks of this office, the legal security of students, the assurance of quality standards, and close cooperation with the Rectorate, the Curriculum Commission and the Senate will be of decisive importance.

The function Director of Studies is exercised by the Vice-Rector for Academic Teaching/Scientific Continuing Education according to the statutes § 3(1)10.
