Information on exams in the summer term 2021

The exams will take place as planned in the lecture free period. Further information can be found here or on the web pages of the University.

Important Information

Extension of final thesis

There is NO automatic extension of the processing time for the final thesis! When you need an extension you have to ask the examinations board of your programn for permission. You therefore have to hand in certificates that show the need of this extension and that you did not cause the delay (e.g. medical certificates in case of illness).

Please note: no reasons for such an extension are e.g. that there are no working places at the university and that you have to reduce your peronal contacts.

In case of any questions please contact Katrin Schneider.

The computer science building is actually off-limits for all students. We strongly recommend to make plans how you can study outside the university and to organize yourself in virtual study groups. Please use ILIAS for that purpose, too. The pools in the computer science building are closed until further notice.
