Exams

Examinations are very important milestones in a course of study. In the examinations, you prove that you have the knowledge and skills necessary to take up a profession.

The entire framework of the examination process is specified in examination regulations.

We have summarised important information for you on this, so that you can

  • not miss a deadline
  • leave no requirement unnoticed and
  • You can ask if something is unclear.

You can find examination regulations, special forms and notes on examination matters directly at your degree programme. First click on your chosen degree and then on your subject(s).

Changes to examination regulations

On enrolment the examination regulations that are valid for you at that time apply.

Due to constantly changing requirements the examination regulations may change for a student during the course of their studies. If the examination regulations for a degree course change transitional regulations are necessary. The transitional regulations aim to ensure that the alterations to the examination regulations do not prolong the duration of studies.

Examples of transitional regulations:

  • “For students who are in their second semester or higher at the time of the entry into force of the new regulations, the regulations that applied up to that point continue to apply. Students can also apply to have the new regulations apply for them, subject to the approval of the Examination Board.”
  • “If module aaa000 has not been completed by the end of the summer semester 2018, students in the second semester or higher must complete module bbb111. Failed attempts in module aaa000 will be taken into account.”

If you have any doubts about which examination regulations apply, how changes will affect your studies, or whether and which transitional regulations apply, the advisors at the Examinations Office will be happy to answer any questions during the regular consulting hours.
