Admission with stipulations

Your examination board can accept your application for a Master's course of study under stipulations up to 30 ECTS. The stipulations can be completed during your Master's course of study but have to be fulfilled before registering your Master's Thesis.


Allocation of stipulations

Stipulations are allocated by the examination board responsible for your course of study individually for each case based on your previous studies. In general, stipulations are determined by comparing the admission requirements in the examination regulation (PO) with your completed classes listed on your transcript of records handed in with your application. If there are classes which should be considered for determining the stipulations but are not listed on the transcript of records, these will not be taken into account. An exemption from this rule are classes which have not been completed at the time of registration. Proof of completion of such classes may be handed in after enrollment through a request at your examination board.

Stipulations can only consist of Bachelor level classes and are listed on your letter of acceptance. If the stipulations are only defined by a certain field (e.g. 5 ECTS in mathematical, chemical, and physical modules) you can choose freely from several possible stipulations. These should, however, reflect your field of specialisation.


Registration for and Listing of Stipulations

Exams for stipulations cannot be registred for in Campus. Instead, you have to register for these exams in person at the Zentrales Prüfungsamt (ZPA) during their registration period. The stipulations will not be listed on your transcript or influence the total grade. Stipulations will be listed separately.


Request for Recognition of Stipulations

When you have fulfilled all your stipulations, you have to make a request at your examination board for the recognition of the stipulations. This request should be handed in before registering the Master's Thesis. As attachments to this request, you should provide your acceptance letter and a proof of the completion of the stipulations, e.g. a transcript of records.
