Can I also take exams as a guest auditor?

Guest auditors can take examinations with the approval of the responsible module supervisor. Please have your lecturer confirm in writing that you are allowed to take the exam using the application form from our download section („Antrag Prüfungsleistung“ only available in German).

The successfully completed examination is certified by the Leuphana University. This certificate confirms that the successfully completed examination was taken as a guest auditor and not as a member of the university.

A separate fee of 25 euros per credit point (CP) is charged for the examination. Attention: Deadline for registration for examination services is 07 May this summer semester.

Where will my course take place?

You can find the information about the location of your course in the course catalogue or on the myStudy website. In myStudy under the tab "Information" in the section "Dates", course dates, time and room number of the lecture hall are listed (e.g. H3 or C40.256). If you click on the room number, you will get more information about the location, size and equipment of the room.

Where can I get information on current Corona protection measures?

Leuphana University has compiled the most current information on precautions, hygiene rules, regulations of government agencies, and decisions of university committees related to the Corona virus on this page.

When can I participate in a course as a guest student?

As soon as you have transferred your guest auditor fee and received your guest auditor's license from the Infoportal, you may attend your courses.

Attention: After receipt of payment it can take 2-3 working days until you are registered in myStudy for your booked events. During this time you will not yet see them in your myStudy timetable and will not yet have access to materials or notifications of the events.
