Which modules can I select?

 

The following modules can be selected in the Master's program depending on the semester (winter or summer):

 

Winter semester Summer semester
AM-2: Essentials in Neuroscience AM-2: Neural Function I: From Experiments to Analysis
AM-6: Cellular Signal Transmission AM-3: Sensory Perception, Synaptic Transmission, Receptor Repertoires and Evolution
AM-6: Neuroimaging AM-4: Neural Function II: Neurons, Networks and Behavior
AM-7: Imaging in Stereotactic Neurosurgery AM-5: Examination Techniques for Neurons and Nerve Tissue
AM-7: Retinal Immunology and Gene Regulation AM-7: Retinal Immunology and Gene Regulation
AM-7: Data Analysis in Life Sciences AM-10: Animal Models in Neuroscientific Research (Practice)
AM-8: Sensory Systems AM-11: Clinical Neuroscience I
AM-8: Ethics in Neuroscience AM-15: Quantitative Microscopy
AM-10: Animal Models in Neuroscientific Research (seminar)  
AM-11: Molecular Neuroimmunology  
AM-11: Clinical Neuroscience II  
AM-15: Quantitative Microscopy  
AM-15: Basic Research Techniques applied in Metabolic Neuroscience  

Information about the modules:

  • Individual modules can be space-limited for different reasons. Which modules are space-limited, will be known as soon as the selection of the modules is possible. 
  • Retinal Immunology and Gene Regulation (AM-7) and Quantitative Microscopy (AM-15) take place both in winter and summer semester. 
  • Animal Models in Neuroscientific Research (AM-7) consists of one part in the winter semester (seminar) and one part in the summer semester (practice part): Both parts have to be selected in order to get 9CP. 
  • Clinical Neuroscience I (AM-11) and Clinical Neuroscience II (AM-11) are independent from each other, meaning that it does not matter which module is selected first. 

Important information about the modules in the WS 20/21

  • Essentials in Neuroscience is offered in two parts (lecture and seminar). Both parts count 6CP and are each advanced modules: Essentials in Neuroscience lecture (AM-16) and Essentials in Neuroscience seminar (AM-15). 
  • The following modules are space-limited this semester: Cellular Signal Transmission (AM-6), Imaging in Stereotactic Neurosurgery (AM-7), Retinal Immunology and Gene Regulation (AM-7), Sensory Systems (AM-8), Animal Models in Neuroscientific Research (AM-10), Clinical Neuroscience II (AM-11), Quantitative Microscopy (AM-15), Basic Research Techniques applied in Metabolic Neuroscience (AM-15), Essentials in Neuroscience (Seminar; not the lecture!) (consider the new sub slide! AM-15)
  • Cellular Signal Transmission (AM-6), Imaging in Stereotactic Neurosurgery (AM-7), Retinal Immunology and Gene Regulation (AM-7) and Quantitative Microscopy (AM-15) will take place in presence
  • Data Analysis in Life Sciences (AM-7) is not offered this semester; it is tried to offer it in the summer semester. 

Selection of modules, Master

 

Each advanced module is defined by three factors: Course typeexamination type and CP. The courses are assigned to the modules according to the parameters. Since there are courses with the same factors, which are accordingly assigned to the same advanced module, there are sub slides for each advanced module (advanced module 8, sub slide "Advanced module 8a", sub slide "Advanced module 8b", sub slide "Advanced module 8c"...) 

Example:
Clinical Neuroscience II has a lecture and practice part as course types and a presentation as examination and it counts 6 CP. It is anchored in Advanced Module 11.
Molecular Neuroimmunology also has a lecture, a practice part, a presentation and 6 CP and is therefore anchored in Advanced Module 11.
In order to be able to take both modules, you have to select them in two different sub slides: for example Clinical Neuroscience II in 11a and Molecular Neuroimmunology in 11b. 
It is also important to remember that courses always consist of several course parts. In Clinical Neuroscience II, it is a lecture and a practice part. You have to select both in Klips. And both in the same sub slide! 

You can occupy each sub slide only once! Therefore, make sure that the sub slide is free and has not already been occupied by other modules! For students in the first semester, all sub slides are still free. The students of the higher semesters have to consider, whether particular sub slides have already been selected. If students of the higher semesters have already taken 8a, then please take a sub slide that is free, e.g. 8b. 

 

 

How do I select non-space limited Modules?

All non-space limited modules are selected via Klips 2.0!

The easiest way to select modules in KLIPS 2.0:

  • Log in to KLIPS and select "Registration status" in the column "Studies". 
  • Click on "Experimental and Clinical Neuroscience“ or on the corresponding schedule-number and a page will open up containing a list with all the modules. 
  • Click on "advanced modules" and a tree with the sub slides of the advanced modules will open up. 
  • Consider in which sub slide you want to select a course (e.g. sub slide 11a for Clinical Neuroscience II) and click on this sub slide. The tree opens up further and the course types can be seen (in case of Clinical Neuroscience II: lecture and practice). 
  • Click on "lecture" as well as "practice" and the concrete courses can be seen.  
  • Click on the courses to open up a page with all the important details about them. In the right upper corner of this page there is the link "Course Registration": Here you can register for the course with a few clicks (we cannot describe the following process anymore, as we cannot look into it). 
  • Consider to select all the courses of a module! It means in case of Clinical Neuroscience II that you have to select both the lecture as well as the practice in one sub slide

After the successful registration the course should be listed on KLIPS in the tab "Course Registration" which is located in the column "Studies". 

 

How do I select space-limited modules?

Space-limited modules are selected manually via Mr. Delonge (samir.delongeSpamProtectionuk-koeln.de) !

This means that you have to send Mr. Delonge a mail during the registration period (will be announced via mail or on the website of the Neuroscience study programs), where you list the space-limited modules (only these! For the selection of non-space limited modules please read the paragraph above) that you want to select this semester. 

Write your name, your semester and your matriculation number in the mail. Additionally, you need to write, in which sub slide the modules should be selected!

Regarding space-limited modules students of the higher semesters have priority. If the students are in the same semester, it is decided by lot. As soon as the registration period ends, you receive a mail with the information which modules you got.
