Assessments at College

The staff of the Student Services will inform and advise you on all questions relating to assessments. The Examination Office is the executive body of the Examination Board. The Examination Office is responsible for implementing and complying with the rules of the General Assessment Regulations and the Subject-Specific Schedules.

Important note

In the course of the current corona crisis and the resulting changes in the framework conditions for studies and teaching, all Leuphana staff are currently working flat out to continue teaching and examination activities in the best possible way, thus avoiding delays in studies and graduation. In the event that it will not be possible to be present on campus for a longer period of time, arrangements are to be made to supplement the framework examination regulations in order to enable students and teachers to react as flexibly as possible to circumstances that may change rapidly. In the next few days, the university committees will deal with the necessary regulations for a possible change in the way examinations are conducted. After the committees have made their decision, we will release the exam registration form as soon as possible.

General Examination Regulations and discipline-related appendices

The General Examination Regulations lay down the general terms and conditions of examinations. They are legally binding and regulate, among other things, study schedule, admission requirements, recognition of credits, examination procedure, examination dates and registration deadlines, absence and withdrawal from examinations, cheating during examinations, grading, opportunities to retake exams, and much more.

Discipline-Related Appendices

The discipline-related appendices (DRA), which exist for each major/minor subject, are part of the General Examination Regulations and contain the specific curriculum of a subject. Required modules and their content, types of class, the type and number of graded pieces of work and the number of credit points that have to be gained in a Leuphana semester, the Complementary Studies program and individually selected major and minor or subject/area (teacher training) are regulated in detail and in a legally binding way.

General Examination Regulations, forms and discipline-related appendices are available only in German and are legally binding only in this form.


Examinations in presence

The exam dates and the corresponding rooms / collection points have been entered into myStudy. Due to the distance regulations, many exams have to take place simultaneously in several rooms. In these cases, rooms are allocated immediately before the exam. Depending on the location, rooms are assigned as follows:

  • For examinations for which several examination rooms on campus (Universitätsallee 1) are named, the rooms are assigned in the rear part of the refectory. Please arrive there at least 60 minutesbeforethe start of the examination.
  • For exams with more than one exam room in the Red Field (Wilschenbrucher Weg 84), the rooms in the old dining hall (Room 055a in Wilschenbrucher Weg 84) will be assigned. Please be there at least 45 minutes before the start of the exam.

If only one room is mentioned in MyStudy, this is the examination room to which you can go directly; in this case you do not have to plan for a time buffer for room allocation and visiting the examination location.

Due to the predominantly low 7-day incidences in Germany at present, there is no obligation to be tested before taking part in attendance examinations. However, for the protection of the participants, we ask all those who do not have complete protection due to vaccination or recovery to be tested within 24 hours before the start of the examination. Test centres are available for this purpose in building C12 and in the city area.
