News Update

Frequently asked questions with conversion to the new campus management system

If you need information about the semester fee paid for the tax office, please contact your program advisor. From the summer semester 2022 onwards, you will be able to download the information yourself via the myBTU portal. 

Doctoral students no longer automatically receive the semester ticket. For the semester ticket, these students please submit an informal application to the Student Services before re-registration. Afterwards, the ticket will be activated and you can pay the semester fee including the semester ticket.

The payment information for re-registration for the next semester can be found in the fee notice in the myBTU portal. You will find this under Reports/Notices and not under Payments.

Status : January 5, 2022

conversion of the campus management system

The new campus management system went live on December 9, 2021.

With your BTU Account, you can now access the myBTU-Student Portal and retrieve information about your study progress, submit online an application for a leave of absence, or print out or download your certificate of enrolment in German and English.

Please note that a system change has only been made for the student administration. The IT service for exam administration will continue to be offered to you via the Online Portal.

If you have any questions or comments about the new myBTU-Student Portal, you can reach us daily from 9.00 o'clock to 13.00 o'clock under T +49 (0) 355 69 2779

We ask for your understanding.

General Studies Module Catalogue Winter Semester 2021/22

For the General Studies in winter semester 2021/22 in study programmes at the BTU only the modules stated in the catalogue are permitted. Other modules are not allowed to be selected.

Please notice the indices, which are determined by the heads of the study programmes. Not all the modules in the catalogue are permitted in every study programme.

The General Studies (GS) are intended to teach skills beyond the specialised knowledge. Therefore  General Studies are not part of the regular study programme, but add subject independent aspects. They do not replace skill integrated instruction, necessary from the angle of the study programme.
