Privatissima and seminars for doctoral candidates may together account for 6 ECTS credits at most.
Courses, with 18 ECTS in total, have to be taken from the curriculum for doctoral and master studies that are related to the topic of the dissertation. The courses have to be agreed on with the supervisor and approved by the dean of studies. It is also allowed to complete suitable courses that are held at another university (after approval).
Summer Schools and other ECTS-courses held by universities or conferences must contain a Certificate (german: Zeugniss) to be considered (german: angerechnet), as well the the dean of study affairs and the supervisor must agree.

Courses with significant overlap to courses of the previous master or bachelor studies can be problematic. Apart from that, various master and/or bachelor courses are usually fine. While a strong connection to one’s PhD topic is definitely reasonable, it is not a must. The “Privatissimum für DissertantInnen” (4 ECTS) and the “DissertantInnensminar” (2 ECTS) are usually included in the curricular part.

max. 6 ECTS SE, PV; no PR or UE. The dean of studies decided that the ECTS points on the course certificates are relevant. In case of no ECTS points mentioned on the course certificate, they are calculated by multiplying the hours by a factor of 1.5.
