Can I integrate FAUMUN into my studies?
For German version click here.
Your participation in FAUMUN will be rewarded with a grade and a maximum of 10 ECTS through the Center for Applied Philosophy of Science and Key Qualifications. To which extent the grade and credit points can be integrated into your course of study is up to you and the requirements of your course of study, since every subject decides on its own in what way and with how many ECTS it would like to incorporate the participation in the project.
You can find an overview of some fields of study below. Please keep in mind below listed information may have been subject to change as the stated information is generated through personal experiences of participants. Also, it does not necessarily mean anything if your subject is not listed. Ask the person who is responsible for your course of study or the responsible examinations office if and how it can be integrated. You may of course also apply and participate if the seminar cannot be integrated into your studies.
The following information is subject to change. We recommend contacting the person responsible for one’s particular subject for more information.
