You complete each module with an assessment. This may involve, for example, an oral or written exam, a term paper or a presentation. Information on the assessments for individual modules can be found in the online course catalogue, or will be announced by the instructor responsible at the beginning of the course. Assessments for all basic level subjects generally involve written exams.
Assessments and exams for Fall Semester modules take place in calendar weeks 51 and 2 to 6.
Assessments and exams for Spring Semester modules take place in calendar weeks 22 to 28.
- Repeat exams, if offered, are not tied to an exam period. However, they generally take place in calendar weeks 35 to 37.
You'll find information on written module exams in the exam schedule
Absence due to Illness
If you are ill on the day of the examination must submit an application for cancellation within 5 working days of the examination and attach a medical certificate. Applications are made through the Studyportal. Log in and select the tile "My Applications" and there "Unsubscribe from the module assessment“. Follow the instructions, enter all necessary information and upload the medical certificate and/or other documents in pdf format (max. 20 MB). You can see the status of your application in the Studyportal.
If you were invited directly by the department offering the exam, for example an oral mathematics exam, please also notify the office that sent the invitation. You can also do so by e-mail.
If you were ill on an initial exam date, you can take the exam on the repetition date, if one is offered. You have to sign up for this. You will receive a notification and a registration form. Notifications will be sent out at the beginning of March for the module exams of the fall semester and in the second half of July for the module exams of the spring semester. If you do not want to do the exam on the repetition date, you will have to re-book the module yourself when it is next offered.
