Examinations in winter semester 2020/21

The offers of the lecturers for the oral exam dates will be announced in good time by the beginning of the first registration period of the first exam period.

The exact date of each individual oral examination will be posted by the Examination Office at the end of the registration period in the QIS online system. Students who do not have access to QIS will find their examination dates posted on the Examination Office's notice board.

We try to take your wishes into consideration when scheduling oral examinations (e.g. silver wedding anniversaries, internships, etc.). We also try to take into account preferences pertaining to examiners. Please inform us of your wishes after your registration via QIS.  After the registration deadline, we can no longer take your requests into account. With over 1400 oral exams, we, unfortunately, cannot fulfill requests such as: Module A on the 14th  , Module B on the 21st.
