Notes on the oral examinations

For oral examinations, which take place at the Chair LLP, no preliminary examination interviews are required. Since the study program of spatial planning aims at the acquisition of a broad application-related basic knowledge and the comparatively high demand for graduates of spatial planning from the professional practice can be explained mainly by the professional breadth of the study program, the LLP examinations proceed in a corresponding manner: Against this background, narrowing down the examination material to specific sub-aspects does not seem to make much didactic sense. Therefore, the LLP examinations cover the entire material of the respective courses. In the exams, more emphasis is placed on contextual knowledge than on detailed knowledge. In order to support students in being able to take advantage of stays abroad, work placements, etc. during their studies, LLP regularly offers examination dates outside of the examination periods. Therefore, the periods in which examinations are offered (by the respective examiners) are announced on the LLP website at an early stage. The goal is to have a 2-month cycle, which will greatly increase flexibility for students. Unfortunately, because we must distribute exams evenly among LLP staff, exam dates cannot be offered by all examiners at all times. Exams are usually held in the office of the first examiner.

For all students according to BSc-PO 2012, the module examination for module 19 comprises the contents of the lectures "Landscape Ecology" and "Landscape Planning" in equal parts. Due to the resulting compactness of the examination, the possibility to start the examination with an introductory presentation is omitted.

Students who continue to study according to the old examination regulations and have already passed the written exam "Landscape Ecology", only have to take the oral exam for the subject "Landscape Planning" module 18) according to the (old) BSC-PO 2007. (Only) in these cases the contents of the element "Landscape Ecology" will not be asked again. When registering for the examination, please always indicate the examination regulations according to which you are studying.

Location & approach

The campus of the Technical University of Dortmund is located near the freeway junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerland line A45 crosses the Ruhr expressway B1/A40. The Dortmund-Eichlinghofen exit on the A45 leads to the South Campus, the Dortmund-Dorstfeld exit on the A40 leads to the North Campus. The university is signposted at both exits.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on the North Campus. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. In addition, the university can be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr transport association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, the AirportExpress takes just over 20 minutes to Dortmund Central Station and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
