Dear students,

we are pleased to announce that in person courses can be held at the university again. Therefore, our courses will again be exclusively in person.


Module BV02/05 - Income, Employment and Price Levels

The courses will start on 09.04.24

Course 2

Selected Issues in Income, Employment and Price Levels


Please note that we will set up a group priority procedure for this course (BV02/05 Course 2) in order to adjust the group sizes of the 8 German-language groups to the allowed number of participants of max. 120 students. You do not need to register for the English-language exercise. The goal is to be able to offer you high-quality teaching - this requires planning. The procedure will be explained to you again by Prof. Dr. Neyer in the first lecture (Tuesday, 09.04.24 in the lecture). Here in advance a few explanations about the procedure:

In a given period (01.03. - 17.03.24 or subsequently in the remaining place procedure 23.03. - 31.03.24 / 06.04. - 14.04.24 / 20.04. - 28.04.24) you have the possibility to register in the LSF system. Please register in order - according to your priority - in all!!! 8 groups.


Group 1-3: in even weeks Mo. 10:30 - 12:00 a.m.

Group 4-6: in even weeks Mo. 12:30 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Group 7: in even weeks Mo. 2:30 - 4:00 p.m.

Group 8: in even weeks Mo. 4:30 - 6:00 p.m.

If you indicate only part of the groups, it might not be possible to assign you and you might fall out of the system - so please make sure to indicate all groups. The system will automatically assign you after you register, so you will receive a notification at the end of the priority process which group you are assigned to.

Please note that you cannot be manually entered and admitted during the procedure period, this is not possible for technical reasons. If you have missed the registration deadline, you have the possibility to participate in a remaining place allocation procedure.

In addition to the 8 groups we offer 1 group room consultation (= course 3), which takes place weekly (Wed, 2:30-4:00 p.m.).


Course 3


Course 3 is designed as a group room consultation hour, where you can ask individual questions about the contents of course 2 (German and English). Course 3 takes place weekly on Wednesdays from 2:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m. and starts on 17.04.24.  Group room exercises will take place at the following times:
