In this manual we show you how to use your curriculum to find your personal schedule and semester plan.

Difference between “Semester plan” and  “Personal schedule”

  • The so-called semester plan provides you with an initial orientation for a subject-specific semester. It generally contains all courses recommended for a particular subject-specific semester of a degree program, including all group dates.
  • The personal schedule displays all your course appointments in a calendar view. You can view your personal schedule in your personal calendar.

The fewer modules are recommended for a subject-specific semester in a degree program, the more modules are in the sectionno semester recommended”. If this applies to more than 500 courses, the dates can no longer be displayed in a calendar view.

By clicking on the clock icon you can view a list of recommended courses for a subject-specific semester. You also have different options to filter the displayed list of courses.

By clicking on “Semester (all)” you can filter the list in order to view only course dates taking place in the winter semester or the summer semester. If you are only interested in exam dates, click on Courses (all)” and select virtual courses in order to exclude all scheduled dates (real courses). You can also select only real courses for a display of scheduled dates and no exam dates.

If you scroll down the list you can see different display options for the group dates of the courses. Next to the calendar view (timetable view) you can export the dates or save them as a PDF and print out the document.

Personal schedule of a particular semester 

Click on the application “Study Status / Curriculum” and then on the calendar icon in order to open the calendar view. In the calendar view (timetable view) you can switch from the weekly calendar to a timetable view. The latter only displays appointment series recurring weekly for at least two weeks and no single events. You can also customize the display of the week days and hours in your personal calendar.

Course dates in the curriculum

Modules without semester recommendation are frequently structured in the curriculum based on their content. E.g. if you can select one specialization out of several subjects (for details see View offered degree programs). By expanding the timetable to the level of a certain specialization, you can use the calendar icon as well as the clock icon in order to have only the dates of exactly one specialization displayed.

Personal schedule (= calendar)

All courses and exams you are registered for or have been registered for are displayed in your personal calendar in TUMonline.

  • Your personal calendar automatically displays the dates of the course group you are registered for, and possibly of the standard group. All changes made to these dates will automatically appear in your calendar.
  • You can switch between a weekly view and a timetable view.
  • If you cannot register for a course please contact one of the lecturers of the course or the student office of your department.

Please note that not all courses are open for registration during the entire lecture period. The lecturer or the respective department decide about the registration period, a possible restriction of the registration for students of certain degree programs only or a possible registration by other means.
