Module registration and examination procedure in winter semester 2020/21

The registration period for modules was extended by one week to four weeks in the winter semester. This also means that the de-registration deadline for modules with MCA has been extended by one week.

Please note that due to the pandemic-related regulations, it is not possible to set final examination dates in all modules at this stage. The registration and deregistration deadlines for repeat examinations as well as deregistration deadlines for modules with a final examination (MAP) are based on the examination periods in which the examination is scheduled. The examination dates are continuously posted on the Info-Portal Teaching. Further information on the schedule of teaching and examinations can be found on the website “Starting your semester”. Specific information on individual modules can be obtained from the respective Moodle courses and the responsible module staff member.

On the recommendation of the Senate, the University Management has decided that examination attendance is also voluntary in the winter semester 20/21. This means that failure to appear for the examination will be regarded as withdrawal. Nevertheless, all students who already know within the applicable deadlines that they will not take part should cancel their registration in good time. This makes planning easier for the lecturers. Please note the further information on the extended right of de-registration.
