Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The university course (UK, lecture with exam) and the seminar (SE) are designed as
a package, so that on each course day the content of the lecture is rounded up by
corresponding group works and presentations. I therefore recommend taking both
courses. It is, however, also possible to register just for either the UK or the SE.
