Room Change in SHPII-Seminar "Sources of Wealth and Roots of Power"

Enrolment Procedure SHPIII

Due to the current circumstances, grades for SHP II (winter term 2018/19) will not be finalized before regular course registration for this summer term commences on TOOL. As a result, students might not be able to enroll for SHP III on TOOL yet, as passing SHP II is a requirement for taking the module. Students planning on taking up SHP III for the summer term will be conditionally enrolled until the grading process is finished and can begin both classes in the module regularly with the start of the semester.
