Examinations are an essential part of your studies and a prerequisite for successful graduation. On this page you will find regulations and exam dates.
Your Exam Results
Grades for module examinations will be announced electronically via the AlmaWeb study portal. You can look up your grades in your personal account in AlmaWeb as soon as they have been entered and published there by the responsible lecturers or their office.
Regulations for Failed Exams
According to the examination regulations, failed module examinations must be repeated within one year. After this period has expired, they are considered failed for a second time. The first retake exam can still take place in the same semester.
After the exam results have been announced and you find that you have failed an exam twice, you are required to apply for permission to repeat the exam a second time at the next possible exam date (usually in the same semester). Second repetitions must be taken at the next possible examination date and can only be taken upon written application to the examination board. In practice, this means that you make an appointment with the Dean of Studies Affairs at the Office of Study Affairs.
Please be sure to adhere to the repetition deadlines and inform yourself in good time at the Office of Study Affairs.
