Participation on all lessons is mandatory. For an admission to the course, it is mandatory to be present on time at the first lesson and having chosen a seminar thesis topic within the first lesson.

A participation on the first lesson without having chosen a seminar thesis topic leads to a deregistration from the course (without grading). As soon as a topic has been chosen by the student, he/she will be graded and cannot be deregistered any more.

After positive registration, a non participation on one of the three lessons leads to a negative grading of the course, as one of the mandatory results (e.g. expose, thesis) cannot be delivered.
