Exams in Advanced Topics and Seminars with the same examination number can only be passed once, regardless of subtitles. This basically means that online registration in QIS for a second seminar or lecture in Advanced topics in the same module group will be rejected if you have already passed one seminar/Advanced topics in this module group successfully.

Currently only the module group for Environmental and Resource Economics offers more than one seminar for examination.

Please consider your degree-specific examination regulations.
