Credit-point Courses - Spanish for Economists

There are a total of four separate Economic Spanish courses (A-B-C-D) within the scope of the Economic Spanish credit-point courses.  Only one course (A or B or C or D) is offered on a rotating basis each semester.

  1. Bachelor students in their study year of consolidation and specialization (s. PO §9 paragraph 5).
  2. Online enrolment for the chosen course and the qualifying test during the stipulated enrolment time (28.03.2022 until 07.04.2022). Enrolment is on a ‘first come first served’ basis. After the online enrolment for Spanish for Economists Credit-Point Courses has ended, a later e-mail enrolment is only possible for students of our Faculty who have in the past already successfully completed one of our Spanish for Economists Credit-Point Courses, and, of course, if there are any vacant places available on these courses.
  3. A pass in the Bachelor Qualifying Test which takes place at the beginning of each semester, or a pass grade in the final examinations of a previous Bachelor Credit-Point Course in Spanish for Economists.
    You will find a model Bachelor Qualifying Test here.
