1st Amendment to the Examination Regulations for the Study Program Master in Economics dated September 11, 2018

  • The amendment dated September 11, 2018 revises the transfer of credits procedure for the Master Examination Regulations 2017.

    Individual examinations taken in study programs at other public or state-approved universities, at public or state-approved academies or institutions of higher education, or in study programs at foreign public or state-approved universities will be recognized on application, provided there are no substantial differences between the individual examinations taken and the modules that are to be substituted.
    You have to hand in an application for transfer of credits for each individual credit. If several credits are to be transferred at the same time, your may do so on one form.
    Transfer of credit applications may be handed in each semester. Having registered for an exam, you may not hand in a transfer of credit application for this exam (fixed limitation period).
    If credits are transferred, this will be effected without a grade and with a "passed" remark. A transfer of credits will be shown as such on your Certificate.
  • The (mistakenly published 7.5) credit points for the Research Module were amended to 15 credit points.
