At Leipzig University, the faculties’ Study Offices and examination offices oversee the organisation of exams and compliance with examination regulations.
Study and Examination Regulations
Each faculty is responsible for the study and examination regulations for each of its degree programmes. These regulations include general and subject-specific provisions for aspects such as the standard period of study, deadlines, examination forms and their assessment, programme length and structure, scope of studies, academic requirements, subject of examinations and final degree.
Every faculty of our university has Study Offices, which serve as a first port of call for questions about the degree programmes. These Study Offices bring together organisational processes and are responsible for planning semesters and managing examinations.
The examination offices and boards are the competent bodies within the faculties for the organisation of exams and compliance with examination regulations.
The examination offices can advise you on the following subjects: registration for examinations, examination dates and registration periods, admission to examinations, withdrawal from examinations, examination appeals, announcement of examination results, and issue of certificates.
Unlike the examination offices, the faculty examination boards do not have an advisory role, but are responsible for taking decisions. For example, they decide on:
- Recognition of academic achievements from previous studies
- Approval of part-time studies
- Appeals against examinations failed for the final time
Leipzig University students can log in to AlmaWeb for an overview of their grades and information about which examinations they have registered for.
