Exam Information

New examination information as of winter semester 22/23

For the winter semester 2022/2023, all examination regulations were adapted to the new regulations in the General Part of the Model Examination Regulations. See HERE

Regulation on subsequent registration for examinations

The examination regulations clearly state that each examination performance must be registered for within the examination registration period for the current semester. Late registration for examinations is generally not granted. Therefore, in your own interest, please ensure that you register for examinations properly and on time. If you are still unsure whether you will take an exam during the registration period (e.g. for second exams, if you do not yet know the result of the first exam), registration is highly recommended. This will not cause you any disadvantages.

If it is not possible for you to register for an exam in the QIS, although the exam is offered according to your knowledge, please write an email to Mr. Meier from the academic examination office immediately, so that there is no failure on your part to register for the exam and the problem can be solved. Ex: If it is not possible for you to register for the second examination in the QIS, although the examination is offered, one reason may be that the grade of your first examination has not yet been entered. In this case you should additionally consult with the examiner.

Written Exams for Bachelor Students of Nanotechnology

Please find the current dates on the respective pages of the individual subjects.

Written Exams for Master Students of Nanotechnology

Applications to the examination board

Applications to the examination board are to be sent informally, but signed, to the study program coordination.

If necessary, proof (original) must be submitted.

As a rule, a decision on all collected applications is made by the examination board on a weekly basis. The decided applications are implemented via the Academic Examination Office. Likewise, students receive information about the resolution of their application through the Examination Office. If you have any questions about this, please contact Mr. Meier at the Academic Examinations Office directly.

The following are some examples of reasons for submitting an application to the Examination Office:

  • Compensation for disadvantages (forms are available from the Central Student Advisory Service)
  • Application for early Master's credits (exact module name, examiner, SL/PL and LP required)
  • Recognition of achievements (exact specification of which achievement X is to be recognized as achievement Y according to the module catalog; specification of the exact module name, examiner, SL/PL and LP and the module contents is necessary)
  • Applications for grading (application for grading (here) and grade report)

Regulations for requesting an extension of the deadline for submitting the final thesis

If you would like to apply for an extension of the deadline for the submission of your thesis due to illness, the submission of a certificate of incapacity for work (yellow certificate) is not sufficient. You need a so-called certificate of incapacity for examination. You can obtain the form here.

In case of unavailability of absolutely necessary facilities, equipment, materials, etc., a certificate of unavailability signed by the initial examiner or supervisor is required.

To apply for an extension, please indicate in an informal letter (by email to the previous deadline for submission, the period of extension according to the certificate of examination unavailability/declaration of non-availability and the resulting new deadline. The application must be signed by you. Only requests submitted before the specified deadline will be processed. A maximum extension of 2 months is allowed for final papers. A request for an extension of the deadline should always be submitted promptly, i.e. no later than 2 weeks after the reasons have ceased to exist.

Rules for the submission of final theses

With the decision of the Nanotechnology Study Commission of 26.01.2021, the procedure for submitting theses will be digitalised. By submitting a pdf file by email to the supervisor(s) and study programme coordination at the same time, the uniformity of the contents is guaranteed and the deadline is automatically met.

The pdf file must therefore be sent by email by the day of the deadline at the latest.

Prior to the grade determination by the supervisor of the Bachelor's thesis, or the first and second supervisor of the Master's thesis, a print version identical to the pdf file must also be submitted to the supervisor(s). From now on, the programme coordination no longer requires a print version.

The thesis must contain a signed declaration of independence both in the digital version and in the print version.

Rules governing the hearing procedure

  • For Bachelor students with a total score of 140 LP or higher, the hearing procedure shall be suspended if, in addition, either the specialist internship has already been recognised or the topic of the Bachelor thesis has already been issued.
  • For Master students with a total score of 80 LP or higher, the hearing procedure shall be suspended if the topic of the Master thesis has already been issued.
  • For students in the first semester of the Bachelor's and Master's programme in nanotechnology, the hearing procedure shall be suspended. This is based on the assumption that in the first semester a delayed orientation in the course of study leads to reduced performance and, as a rule, does not fulfil the function of counselling and performance assessment due to the uncounted hearing.
