1 Natural Sciences Faculty University of Bern Study plan for the MSc course and PhD in Ecology and Evolution The Philosophical Natural Sciences Faculty of the University of Bern remits the following Study Plan for the Master s course and for PhD study in Ecology and Evolution (from here on referred to as the Study Plan), based on Article 8 of the Statute of the University of Bern from 17 December 1997 (UniSt) and the Regulations for Study and Assessment in the Natural Sciences Faculty from 1 April 005 (RSL). 1. General Art. 1 Scope: 1 This plan is valid for all students of the Natural Sciences Faculty who are matriculated for the MSc course or PhD in Ecology and Evolution, as well as students who study Ecology and Evolution as a subsidiary subject. The qualification MSc in Ecology and Evolution, in combination with a foregoing Bachelor (BSc) degree in Biology or an equivalent BSc education, is one of the two possible prerequisites for training in Higher Education with Biology as the main subject. Unless more exactly defined, the rules of the superordinated RSL apply. Art. Direction of studies: 1 The Institutes of Plant Sciences and of Zoology run a joint Direction of Studies. This consists of a Director of Studies, as well as a Studies Coordinator from each institute. The Director of Studies is selected by both institutes and suggested to the Faculty for election. The Director of Studies is responsible for all tasks planned in accordance with the RSL. He or she can wholly or partly delegate the assessment and examinations to the Studies Coordinators. Names of, and dates for consultation with, persons responsible for Direction of Studies and Coordination will be made available to the students. Art. Advice to students: 1 The institutes are each responsible for the election of Student Advisers. Names of, and dates for consultation with, persons responsible for advising students will be made available to the students. II. MSc studies 1. General regulations 1

2 Art. Study aims: In the Master studies, and particularly in the completion of a Master thesis, a deepening and specialization in Ecology and its applications is achieved. A stronger accent is additionally placed upon research activities. As a professional and research qualification the MSc in Ecology and Evolution enables a broad entrance to practical employment as well as continuation with a further academic career, e.g. the attainment of a PhD degree. Art. 5 Degree: The Master studies is completed with the title Master of Science in Ecology and Evolution, University of Bern, in the following areas of specialization: a Animal Ecology and Conservation, b Behaviour, c Evolution, and d Plant Ecology Art. 6 Extent: 1 The Master qualification is reached by the acquisition of 90 European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) points. Included within these are 60 points for the Master thesis. One ECTS point corresponds to 5-0 hours effort on the part of the student. The specialization is chosen on the basis of the selected course units, which will be assessed, and on the topic of the Master thesis. Art. 7 Length of studies: 1 The reglemented time period for the Master studies amounts to semesters. As to the possibility of an extension Art. 7 of the RSL applies. Art. 8 Prerequisites to studying: 1 Students who have attained a Bachelor degree in Biology from the Natural Sciences Faculty of the University of Bern with a specialization in Zoology can be admitted to the Master studies without further preconditions. The same applies for students with a Bachelor in Biology from Bern, with a specialization in Plant Sciences, as long as the required assessed units in Plant Ecology (see Appendix 1) were passed. Students with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Bern in an other area of specialization, or with a Bachelor of Sciences in Biology from an other Swiss university, will be admitted to the Master studies. Depending on the orientation of the completed Bachelor degree and the intended specialization, the Master degree can be successfully achieved by either proof of additional knowledge and ability, or by performance on further courses worth up to 60 ECTS points. Art. 9 Assessment units: In Appendix an overview of the obligatory and optional assessed units and their values in ECTS points is to be found. Assessment units of the BeNeFri universities or the Troisième Cycle (CUSO) are recognized through the respective course supervisors (see Art. 11).

3 On request the Director of Studies can recognize assessment units worth up to 15 ECTS points which have been attained at other Swiss or foreign universities, federal technical universities, or comparable institutions. The Committee for Studies of the Natural Sciences Faculty is responsible for determining to which extent the 15 ECTS points can be exceeded. Art.10 Subsidiary in Ecology and Evolution at the Master s level: 1 The subsidiary (= Minor) in Ecology and Evolution is made up of 0 ECTS points from the courses offered in the Bachelor studies ( rd year specialization in Zoology or Plant Sciences for units see Appendix 1) or those of the Master in Ecology and Evolution. Prerequisite for admittance to the Subsidiary in Ecology and Evolution at the Master s level is normally the completion of a Minor in Biology Bachelor studies worth c. 60 ECTS points.. Master thesis Art. 11 Supervision of the Master thesis: 1 At the beginning of the Master studies students seek for a supervisor in whose area the Master thesis will be undertaken. Every semester a current list of supervisors will be made available through the Direction of Studies. Together with the supervisor, and in agreement with the section head, a timeplan in which the Master thesis is to be completed will be set. Art. 1 Content: 1 Within the frame of the Master studies an individual research project will be made under the direction of the supervisor. This will be brought together in a written Master thesis and submitted to the supervisor. Normally a part of the thesis should already be published in, or submitted to, a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Regulations in Art of the RSL (see below) are to be kept in mind. Art 1. Deadlines and grading: 1 The length of time allowed between the start and the handing-in of the Master thesis is maximally 1 months. The supervisor evaluates and grades (with a mark) the Master thesis within weeks of the handing-in, passing on the result to the Study Committee of the Faculty. After ratification of the evaluation and mark by this Committee, the supervisor informs the student of the mark. In reaching the mark for the Master thesis, the supervisor estimates the relative weighting given to the carrying out of the thesis and the written submission. (See Art. 19 for the marks scale). Assessment Art. 1 Assessment: 1 The following are possibilities for the assessment of

4 courses: a written examinations at the end of semester of 0-10 minutes duration, b oral examinations of minutes duration, and c grading of thesis done during a practical, field or seminar course, in accordance with Art. 7 of the RSL. The university teacher (= Dozent) who is responsible for the unit informs the students about the form of the assessment at the start of semester. Art. 15 Registration for assessment: 1 Students register with the university teachers who act in the function of examiners/evaluators assessing performance in the respective units. These examiners check that the conditions of acceptance for assessment are met and set the dates. The conditions of acceptance for assessment are: a Matriculation for the Master studies, b Proof that necessary units have been passed, or work has been achieved, for the particular examination. In the case of non-acceptance the Director of Studies informs the student of this in written form, with the advice that within 10 days of receipt of the communication an instruction from the body which is responsible according to Faculty regulations can be required. Art. 16 Deregistration from assessment: To deregister from assessment in less than 1 days before the appointed date only important grounds can be validly accepted. Otherwise the assessment is taken as being unsatisfactory with the mark of 1 (see Art., para. of the RSL). The de-registration has to be made in writing to the place or person responsible for the registration (Art. 15) Art. 17 Non-appearance for assessment: 1 If a candidate leaves or steps back from the assessment, does not appear for an examination, or for another form of assessment cannot be on time, then he or she within one week from the appointed date of assessment has to provide a doctor s certificate. Otherwise the assessment is taken as being unsatisfactory with the mark of 1. In other aspects Art. of the RSL is valid. Art. 18 Unallowed aids: If the result of the assessment is influenced, or an attempt is made to influence it, through deception (cheating), particularly by the use of material aids not expressly permitted by the university teacher responsible, then the assessment is taken as being unsatisfactory with the mark of 1 (Art. 8, para 1 of the RSL). Art. 19 Notification of examination results and access to files: 1 The Direction of Studies collects together and archives the results of the assessments and forwards the marks directly to the Dean s office of the Faculty.

5 The results of the assessments are communicated to the students. The students can inspect the papers of their assessments by contacting the university teacher who was responsible for the examination within up to a month of the release of the corresponding examination results.. Master Diploma Art. 0 Criteria for the passing of the Master Diploma: 1 The assessments of the individual units together with the mark for the Master thesis are combined into an mean for the Master Diploma. The weights for the individual units and their assessment, which correspond to the number of respective ECTS points, are indicated in Appendix of this Study Plan. To pass the Master diploma the weighted mean grade, after rounding, must be ; the mark of the Master thesis must be sufficient; there must be no more than 7.5 ECTS-points of units showing insufficient marks; and the weighted mean of all applicable additional performance, set as a precondition to completing the Master studies, must be sufficient. In other aspects Art. of the RSL is valid. Were the Master diploma not passed, then all unsatisfactory assessments are to be repeated. Each assessment can only be repeated once. The repetition of a satisfactory assessment is impossible. When the mark for the Master thesis is unsatisfactory, one more new Master thesis under different supervision can be started, within the framework of an individual Study Plan. Art. 7 holds here. Art. 1 Examination fees: The fees for examinations are laid down in Art. 9 of the RSL. III. PhD studies Art. Recognition of other degrees: 1 Holders of a Master Diploma (MSc) in a natural science subject or another similarly recognized University degree have the possibility to start PhD studies in Ecology and Evolution. The recognition is set by the responsible body of the Natural Sciences Faculty (Art. 5, para 1 of the RSL). Art. Responsibility for admittance and regulation of the PhD studies: The PhD studies, including admittance, are regulated by Art. 5-6 of the RSL (see below) and the Study Plan presented here. Art. Obligatory assessed units: 1 When the student is a member of Graduate School during their period of PhD studies, he or she has by this means predefined requirements to fulfil. 5

6 When the student is not a member of a Graduate School during the period of his or her PhD studies, then institute seminars and special lectures in the subject area, to the extent of minimally hours per week every semester, are to be taken. Additionally, courses away or conferences of minimally one week during the whole PhD studies are to be attended. The supervisor of the Doctoral thesis controls the successful participation in these obligatory units. Art. 5 Doctoral thesis: 1 Within the framework of the PhD studies the student works on an individual research project. This is brought together in a Doctoral thesis (Dissertation), which is handed in to the supervisor. Normally, at least three parts of the thesis should be either published in peerreviewed scientific journals, submitted for publication, or be in manuscript form of ready for submission. If the Dissertation is judged by the supervisor or co-referee to be insufficient the candidate can revise the thesis once. Art. 6 Doctoral examination: 1 The PhD studies are completed with a doctoral examination. The Doctoral examination is undertaken by the supervisor of the thesis and a co-referee. Art. 59 of the RSL applies. Art. 7 Result of the Doctoral examination and overall mark: 1 The examiners define the result of the Doctoral examination and the overall mark immediately after the examination. The overall mark is then communicated to the candidate. The PhD studies are passed when the each of the marks of the reports of the referee and co-referee, and of Doctoral examination, have reached at least. The overall mark is the rounded weighted mean of the mark for the Dissertation (x) and the mark for the Doctoral examination (x1). In the case of an unsatisfactory Doctoral examination the form of the repetition is defined by the candidate and the examiners. Art. 8 Examination fees: Art. 9 of the RSL sets the examination fees. IV. Final provisions Art. 9 Changes to the Study Plan are subject to the permission of the University Administration. Excepted are changes to the Appendices, which lie in the competence of the staff of the Faculty.
