The general examination procedure for students consists of four steps for which fixed periods in each semester are set:

1. Registration
2. Admission review
3. Examinations
4. Reviewing results



You are obliged to register in good time for all examinations relevant to the certificate within the corresponding registration period prescribed. If you do not register, you will not be permitted to sit examinations!

Registration for modules is carried out via the Students-Online-Function (HIS-QIS). If you encounter problems during online registration, please contact the Examination Office immediately.


Admission Review

During this review period, please check whether your registration has been entered in the Students-Online-Function. Please print out an overview of all your registered examinations. In case of discrepancies this printout will be used as proof of your registration.
