Frequently asked questions
Can I repeat an exam. How often?
- Exams that you have not passed can be repeated as often as you require (exception: thesis and GOP in the Bachelor's degree).
- Exams that you have passed can be repeated only once after the next iteration of this lecture (usually the next year)
Can I improve my grade?
- Exams that you have passed can be repeated only once after the next iteration of this lecture (usually the next year).
- If you try an improvement, the better grade of both tries is used.
- If you have completed all exams (including thesis) and want still to improve grades, you must apply for continuation of studies (see here).
What is the maximum length of study?
- The standard length of study is 6 semesters for the Bachelor's degree and 4 semesters for the Master's degree. For the minor, the standard length of the major applies.
- You must successfully complete all exams up to one semester after the standard length of study (7 semesters for Bachelor, 5 semesters for Master), otherwise you fail for the first time. This includes failing the thesis (if not finished yet). After failing for the first time you have two additional semesters to take all remaining exams.
- The thesis can only be repeated once and must be registered after failing for the first time no later than the middle of the following semester (8th semester Bachelor, 6th semester Master).
- The maximum length of study is therefore 9 semesters for the Bachelor's degree and 7 semesters for the Master's degree.
