Note: The following sample study plan is to be understood as a periodically updated recommendation that is compatible with the respective examination and study regulation (PStO). In particular, it is not guaranteed that all specified courses will always be offered for elective courses and at the specified rotation. Please check well in time (LSF) whether courses which you plan to enroll will actually take place. This sample study plan is intended to make it easier for you to plan your studies. However, it does not result in any legal obligations. The latter are regulated solely by the respective PStO.

Recommended mobility window for a potential study abroad
If you are interested in studying abroad, e.g. within the Erasmus, our International Master Business Mathematics, or other study programs, the third and potentially fourth semester are particularly suitable. Please plan a possible study abroad well ahead of time, inform yourself about the deadlines of the PStO of your study program, and consult with the student advisory regarding the potential recognition of courses of the host university and the learning agreement, if applicable. See "How can I get my courses recognized for credit?" for the required information.
