Answers

1. How many ECTS do I get per course?

You can earn 6 ECTS points per course in each of the following courses: Econometrics, Microeconometrics, Engineering Statistics, Multivariate Analysis, Introduction to Financial Statistics, Time Series Analysis, Treatment Effect Analysis and Panel Data.

2. Is it possible to take an oral exam?

As a matter of principle, Prof. Werwatz does not offer oral examinations – and there are no exceptions to this rule.

3. What exactly is the Research Seminar (Forschungsseminar)?

The Research Seminar is for students who write their Bachelor, Master or PhD theses at our chair. It takes place on a non-regular basis, whenever someone has something to present (either provisional or final results). Hence, it is not a regular seminar, in which you can earn ECTS points.

4. Can I write my Bachelor or Master thesis at your chair?

Yes, our chair offers the opportunity to write Bachelor and Master theses. If you are interested, please visit Prof. Werwatz’s office hour to swap first ideas.

5. How do the examinations work?

As a matter of principle, our chair only offers written exams at the end of the lecture period (usually in February for the winter term and in July for the summer term). There is a re-take exam at the end of the semester for all students that have either failed the exam or sent a copy of their sick note (for the exam date) to the secretary’s office (re-takes are usually in April for the winter term and in September or October for the summer term). This applies to our basic courses (Econometrics and Microeconometrics) as well as for our elective courses (Multivariate Analysis, Time Series Analysis, Introduction to Financial Econometrics, Engineering Statistics, Treatment Effect Analysis and Econometric Analysis of Longitudinal and Panel Data).

For our basic courses (Econometrics and Microeconometrics) we offer the opportunity of an additional exam in the subsequent (summer) semester. Interested students have to register for this exam not only at the examination office or QISPOS, but also at our chair. The registration deadline is June 1st. If we have not received a registration by this date, the additional exam will not take place. To register for the additional exam in Econometrics, please send an e-mail with the subject “Klausuranmeldung Ökonometrie Sommersemester" to Ewelina Fiebig by June 1st. To register for the additional exam in Microeconometrics, please send an e-mail with the subject “Klausuranmeldung Microeconometrics Sommersemester" to Tomas Repasky by June 1st.

6. How do I obtain a course confirmation for another university?

Course confirmations are issued by the secretary’s office and require Prof. Werwatz’s signature. Therefore, we cannot send the document by e-mail (delivery by post is possible). To save time, please notify us that you need a course confirmation when registering for the exam.

7. How do I register for the exam?

Courses at our chair are not limited to specific study programs. Therefore, please consider the exam regulations of your study program for information about the exam registration.

As a matter of principle, we require an additional registration at our chair for all Master courses. In this registration we ask for fundamental information enabling us to send your grades to the correct examination office and/or university and to plan the examinations properly.

MINE students taking Microeconometrics have to register at our chair exclusively. Registration with the examination office or in QISPOS is not required.

Students pursuing the Master of Statistics from Humboldt University have to register at our chair exclusively by sending an e-mail with all required information to the respective tutor.

8. How do I register for participating in one of your courses?

You do NOT have to register for participating in our courses. However, in our Master courses we offer computer tutorials to work with statistical software packages such as STATA or R. The number of seats and computers in the computer labs is limited.

9. Is it compulsory to attend the lectures and tutorials?

Attendance in our courses is not compulsory. However, we strongly recommend attending the lectures and tutorials, because the exams contain both theoretical questions from the lectures and practical applications from the tutorials.

10. I write a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis at another chair or university and have a question regarding statistics – can I get advice from you?

Our office hours are primarily intended for our “own” students that take a course or write their thesis at our chair (or plan to do so). Advising these students has absolute priority to us. Helping other students is hence only possible in exceptional cases.

11. Where do I find lecture notes and material from the tutorials?

All documents can be found on the respective ISIS course pages. Access to the course pages is password-protected. The passwords are announced in the first lecture of each course.

12. When do the tutorials start?

As usual at TU Berlin, tutorials start in the second week of the semester.
