Information and forms

  • Written examinations for Bachelor’s, Master’s and Diplom degree programmes that are organised by the Examinations Office are held during the first 5 weeks of the semester break.
  • Oral examinations that are organised by the Examinations Office are held at the end of the semester break.
  • If you are registered to sit an examination for the first time you may withdraw up to 3 working days (Monday to Friday) before the date of the examination without stating reasons. You can withdraw from an examination via mein campus. If you do not withdraw before the deadline, if you do not attend the examination without a valid reason it will be considered failed.
  • You may not withdraw from resit examinations without reasons. You may withdraw from resit examinations due to illness or other valid reasons. In this case you must submit an application for withdrawal (application for withdrawal due to illness) and provide suitable proof of the reason for withdrawal (e.g. a doctor’s certificate). A certificate confirming inability to work (Arbeitsunfähigkeitsbescheinigung) is not sufficient. [Section 11 (3) and (4) BPOWIWI and Section 10 (3) and (4) MPOWIWI]

Announcement of examination dates:

The Examinations Office determines the dates for certain major examinations manually at the beginning of the semester. However, the dates for the majority of examinations cannot be determined until after the registration deadline when it is clear which students wish to take which examinations.

Due to the number of examinations, the large number of candidates and the fact that clashes must be avoided, it is not possible to schedule all examinations manually. Under consideration of the examination dates that have already been determined, the remaining examinations are scheduled after the registration deadline using specially designed software.

The dates for these examinations are usually determined one week, or two weeks at the latest, after the registration deadline and are published as soon as they are available (here and on mein campus).

Deadline for passing the Grundlagen- und Orientierungsprüfung (GOP)

All modules in the GOP must be passed by the end of the third subject semester at the latest. Some modules from the assessment phase are part of the GOP. The GOP consists of modules from the first two semesters worth 50 ECTS credits (or 30 ECTS for the degree programmes in Information Systems and Business Law).

Only completed modules from the assessment phase count. Examinations for GOP modules may only be resat once.

In the degree programmes in Business Studies, International Business Studies, and Socioeconomics, the assessment phase consists of 60 ECTS credits, which means that 10 ECTS may be from modules that are not part of the GOP. For these 10 ECTS credits you may resit examinations twice and/or sit the examinations in a later semester.

Deadline for passing the Bachelor’s examination

The Bachelor’s examination must be passed by the end of the 8th subject semester at the latest.

Deadline extensions

After the deadlines for the GOP and the Bachelor’s examination, they are considered failed at the final attempt if not all components have been passed.

You may submit a written application for an extension of these deadlines to the Examinations Committee if there is a valid reason for which you are not responsible. Applications for extensions must be submitted to the Examinations Office and proof of the reasons must be provided.

If after the end of the 8th semester the only examinations that you still have to take are resit examinations, you may also apply for an extension. In this case, however, you do not need to re-register for the next semester.

Deadline for passing the Master’s examination

The Master’s examination must be passed by the end of the 6th subject semester at the latest.

Deadline extensions

After the deadline has passed, the examination counts as failed at the final attempt.

You may submit a written application for an extension of these deadlines to the Examinations Committee if there is a valid reason for which you are not responsible. Applications for extensions must be submitted to the Examinations Office and proof of the reasons must be provided.

If after the end of the 6th semester the only examinations that you still have to take are resit examinations, you must also apply for an extension. In this case, however, you do not need to re-register for the next semester.

General information

  • Special regulations for international student: sA bilingual dictionary may be used during written examinations. This may also be a specialist dictionary. Handwritten comments or notes are not allowed. Candidates are requested to show their dictionaries to the invigilator for checking on the day of the examination.

Please do not deliver your documents to the Examinations Office in person.
