The first activities for the practical semester begin for students as early as the bachelor's degree: the degree should be planned in such a way that preparation and implementation of the practical semester with preparatory training can take place in the first and second master's semesters. Concrete planning for the practical semester with preparatory training also begins almost three quarters of a year beforehand. Registration for the preparatory courses (preparation for practical semester - VPS) must be made in the electronic course catalogue (ekvv) by 01 July if the practical semester starts in February or by mid/end January if the practical semester starts in September. Registration for these VPS events must be done separately for each of the three (GymGe and HRGe) or four subjects (Primary Education). The planning and action steps to be followed can be found in the respective timetables.
