Do you have problems in the course of your studies?

In the context of the Covid19 pandemic, exceptions have been made with regard to examinations and the course of studies at UL for the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/2021 and now also for summer term 2021. This concerns, for example, failed exams, the crediting of semesters and enrollment in the master's program.

  • Cancellation of failed examinations: Failed examination attempts (except in the case of cheating or violation of rules) will automatically be invalidated. The module registration remains intact and the examination procedure continues. Consequently, the student has the possibility to participate in further examination dates offered during the semester. This regulation also applies to the winter semester 2020/21, as well as the summer semester 2021.
  • Extension of the Standard Period of Study: This extension of the standard period of study will take effect for all students without the need to apply. Corresponding certificates of extension of the individual standard period of study will be uploaded to each student’s AlmaWeb account. 

From now on, the presentation of a negative corona test result (1x per week) is mandatory in attendance courses (practical courses, research practical courses and final theses).

Test centers/pharmacies offering tests in Leipzig can be found here!

We ask you to please keep track of the current exam dates for the summer semester 2021. Furthermore, please pay attention to all announcements made by the lecturers!

From now on, up to June 30, 2021, exams in presence are not permitted (except internships).

The new regulations for the study programs of the Faculty of Chemistry and Mineralogy have been approved by the Rector’s Office. They will be published shortly under “Official Announcements of the UL” or here for the Bachelor's and Master's programs and the Teacher Training programs.
