Questions concerning your studies

Changing your degree program

If you want to change your degree program, you have to apply for this change at the Student Office.

You can request that the board of examiners (Prüfungsausschuss)/examination committee (Prüfungskommission) of your new degree program to which you would like to change accredits your already completed modules to your new degree program, provided that the modules are also available in the new degree program or can be accredited to modules of this degree program.

Accredited study achievements are shown in the transcript of records.

Changing subjects

If you want to change your subjects, you have to apply for this change at the Student Office.

If students want to change their subjects, already completed modules which are also required in the new combination of subjects must be transferred to and counted for the new subject combination.

Modules that can be used for the elective area of the new combination of subjects may be transferred on the students’ request. All modules that must be transferred, as well as those that the student wants to have transferred to the new combination, must be stated in the application for accreditation.

Re-registration

By re-registering, students of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt declare that they wish to continue their studies in the usual way in the next semester.

For further information, please refer to the Student Office’s website.

  

Where can I get proof of my achieved language proficiency?

A confirmation of your achieved language proficiency in accordance with the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is issued by the Language Center at the KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt subject to presentation of your current overview of grades.

Please note that the overview of your grades must list all language modules that you have completed successfully and in full.

Funding programs

Which funding programs are there and how are beneficiaries selected?

In regular intervals, the Examinations Office of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt is asked to propose students who have achieved excellent results in their studies for application to different funding programs (e.g. Max-Weber program, German Academic Scholarship Foundation, Elite Academy etc.). The pre-selection of students who may be considered for a funding program is carried out by the Examinations Office on the basis of the respective student’s performance and achievements. The final decision is taken by the funding institutions.

 

Which requirements do I have to fulfill in order to be considered for a funding program?

The pre-selection process carried out by the Examinations Office involves disclosure of your current performance and achievements and your personal data to the funding institution (name, mailing address, e-mail address, date of birth, number of semesters, average grade). We are obliged to observe the data protection regulations; therefore, we require your explicit written consent to transfer the data.

If you would like to take part in a funding program and if you agree that we put down your name for participation in a funding program for students and transfer your personal data as mentioned above to the funding institutions for this purpose, please give your consent on KU.Campus by confirming the web form that can be found under “My personal data”.

Can I give my consent for data transfer retroactively or revoke such consent at a later point in time?

If you have not given your consent for data transfer at the point in time of the pre-selection, you cannot be considered for funding.

You can withdraw your consent at any time on KU.Campus under ‘My personal data'.

 

Examination registration

What can I do if I am unable to register for examinations during the registration period?

If you are unable to register for examinations during the registration period, please send an e-mail to the administrator at the Examinations Office who is responsible for your degree program before expiry of the registration period.

You can only register for the respective examinations during the registration period. Please note that there are different registration periods for in-semester examinations and end-of-semester examinations.

What can I do if I missed the registration period for an examination?

Degree programs in Eichstätt

After expiry of the registration deadline, you may only register for an examination if you can provide proof that you missed the registration deadline for reasons that were not within your control.

In this case, you can submit the application for late registration for an examination (in the original and signed by hand) to the chairperson of the board of examiners/examination committee of your degree program.

If you were unable to register for an examination before expiry of the deadline for reasons of illness, you have to provide proof by submitting a corresponding doctor’s certificate which must fulfill the following requirements:
The present symptoms connected to the illness as well as any physical, mental and/or emotional dysfunctions must be described in a detailed, comprehensible way so that the university is able to draw conclusions as to the student’s lack of ability to register for the examination online during the registration period due to the present illness.

The board of examiners/examination committee can either accept or reject your application. The board of examiners/examination committee informs the Examinations Office of its decision in writing. If your application is accepted, you will be registered for the examination in question retroactively.

Degree programs in Ingolstadt

Unfortunately, students at the Ingolstadt School of Management (WFI) do not have the possibility to register for an examination retrospectively. If they failed to register within the registration period, they will only be able to register for and sit the examination in the next regular course rotation.

Canceling examination registrations/withdrawal

Canceling a registration for a written end-of-semester examination (written exam) of university degree programs

You can cancel your registration for a written end-of-semester examination (e.g. written exams) of university degree programs up to and including the sixth working day (Monday - Saturday) before the examination. The day of the examination itself is not counted.

Example:

The examination will take place on Wednesday, July 11.
The sixth working day before the examination is Monday, July 4. This means that you can only cancel your registration for the exam until July 4, 11:59 p.m.

Calculation of deadline:
Wednesday, July 4 ⇒ 6th working day
Thursday, July 5 ⇒ 5th working day
Friday, July 6 ⇒4th working day
Saturday, July 7 ⇒ 3rd working day
Sunday, July 8 ⇒ Sunday (not counted in calculation of deadline)
Monday, July 9 ⇒ 2nd working day
Tuesday, July 10 ⇒ 1st working day
Wednesday, July 11 = examination day, not counted in calculation

Canceling a registration for an oral final examination for students of university degree programs

Canceling a registration for an oral final examination (individual examination) is generally possible until the last working day before the first scheduled individual examination. When registering for the examination on KU.Campus, you can see whether the examination is an individual examination from the section ‘Detailed information on the course/examination‘ under ‘Examination type’. For the date of the first individual examination, please refer to the overall plan of all individual examinations that is available on KU.Campus in the section ‘Detailed information on the course/examination’ under ‘Planned course/examination dates’.

After expiry of the registration period, students have the possibility to cancel their registration directly via KU.Campus up until 6 working days before the date of the first individual examination. Furthermore, it is also possible to cancel a registration by submitting an informal written request to the Examinations Office (to your responsible administrator) up until the last working day before the first date of the individual examination for the oral final examination.

The above-mentioned possibility for canceling a registration does not apply for

  • Oral final examinations with more than one examination participants for the same date who take the examination in pairs or groups
  • Practical final music examinations that are taken in small groups

For these examinations, it is only possible to cancel a registration before expiry of the respective registration period.

Non-attendance in examinations without valid reasons

You can only cancel your registration for an examination for valid reasons or during the cancelation period for registrations. If a student fails to attend an examination without valid reason, the examination has been failed.

The lecturer must grade the respective student’s examination with the grade 5.0 (failed) and the failed examination is recorded and displayed as “failed attempt“ on KU.Campus.

The failed attempt will not be stated in any official grade confirmation issued by the Examinations Office.

Non-attendance in examinations for valid reasons

Degree programs in Eichstätt

If you have registered for an examination but are unable to attend for a valid reason (e.g. illness), please complete the form “Withdrawal from an Examination” and submit it to the Examinations Office with all supporting evidence immediately.

You must inform your examiner of your withdrawal from the examination by e-mail in any case, if possible before the start of the examination.

Degree programs in Ingolstadt

Insofar as the General Examination Regulations (APO) require submission of a doctor’s certificate, the student must submit a doctor’s certificate for this degree program that is issued by a specific doctor specified by the University (vertrauensärztliches Attest). The board of examiners specifies which doctors can issue such a certificate.

Taking examinations/retake examinations

Where do I get support if I am unable to take my examinations as planned due to prolonged disability or impairment?

Should a permanent or prolonged disability or equivalent impairment prevent you from sitting examinations, attending courses or completing assessments that are required during your course of study, you can apply for adjustments to compensate for the disability with regard to the respective examination(s). You send your application to the chairperson of the board of examiners of your degree program.

The required application forms and further information are available on the website of the Student Advisory Service:
Advice for students with disabilities, chronic illnesses and impairments

 

Does the type of examination have to be continuously offered in the same format in case of retake examinations?

Retake examinations for modules must not be offered in the same format continuously until all possible examination attempts have been used by the student.

However, a retake examination must be offered in the same format within the respective examination period.

If the module description or examination regulations allow students to choose between different types of examinations, the respectively chosen type of examination for the current semester must be officially announced at the start of the course or seminar.

The announced type of examination must then be applied throughout the whole semester (first and second examination period). For students who retake the examination in the next semester (first or second retake attempt), the respectively applicable examination conditions as announced for the respective module in this next semester shall apply.

Can students retake in-semester examinations within the same semester?

Retaking an in-semester examination in the same semester is not possible. Students can only retake in-semester examinations in the following semester when the module is offered again.

Students of university degree programs can, and students of Fachhochschule degree programs must retake a failed in-semester examination at the earliest possible date.

In case of written assignments/seminar papers, retaking the assessment means that students are assigned a new topic and a new submission deadline and that they have to register for the in-semester examination again (new examination entry). It is not permitted to take written assignments/seminar papers that were already submitted and graded again in order to try and improve the grade.

Is it possible to have a KU examination conducted at a foreign university by an examiner of that university?

It is not possible to have an examination conducted at a foreign university by examiners of that university on behalf of the KU. In accordance with examination law, the KU cannot take over responsibility for this due to the following reasons:

  • In case of such examination scenarios, the examination conditions and examiners are beyond the KU’s scope of influence
  • The KU is not authorized to issue instructions to the examiner of the foreign university
  • The examiner of the foreign university is not bound by our examination regulations

In addition, the examiner could generally not be approved for reasons of equality, as conducting an examination at a foreign university with a different examiner could give students an advantage over fellow students who do not have this possibility.

Enrollment for modules/choosing modules multiple times

Can I take the same module with different courses and seminars more than once?

Modules can only be accredited more than once with different courses and examinations if the respective study and examination regulations of a degree program expressly allow that modules can be chosen multiple times. (indicated by note in examination regulations: “may be chosen multiple times”)
Otherwise, the module can only be accredited in the final academic record with the examination that was completed first (thus only once).

When modules are chosen multiple times, the procedure for completion and accreditation of the modules shall be governed by Section 5 para. 6 of the General Examination Regulations (APO).
Further information and examples are available in the leaflet Case examples for modules that may be chosen multiple times.

If modules are completed multiple times in a row in accordance with the permissible procedure for grade improvement in teaching degrees, KU.Campus only displays the most recently achieved grade. In this case, students are asked to contact their responsible administrator at the Examinations Office in order to ensure that the modules are accredited correctly.

Am I allowed to enroll for modules that are not provided for my degree program according to the examination regulations?

Students are at liberty to take additional modules which they cannot have accredited for their degree program in accordance with the examination regulations at any time.

If students have completed these modules successfully and in full, these will not be included in the regular list of grades but will be listed under “additional course achievements”. The prerequisite for these modules to be listed is that they were completed parallel and in addition to all course achievements and assessments that are required in accordance with the examination regulations during enrollment for the student’s chosen degree program.

You can request a certificate listing these modules upon conclusion of your studies that will be added to your official transcript of records as annex.

The required area lists a module which may be chosen multiple times. How does accreditation work for those?

If a module from the required area and required elective area is marked with the additional note: “may be chosen multiple times” in the examination regulations applicable for your degree program, the examination that the student passed first will be accredited in the required area.

The second and third time when students complete the module successfully will be accredited to the required elective area.

When requesting your final academic record, if applicable (depending on the examination regulations and the completed modules), you can choose whether you would like the second and/or third time you completed the module to appear in the final academic record.

Overview of grades

How can I access an overview of my grades in PDF format?

If you require an overview of your grades as a PDF file, you can request a list by e-mail from your responsible administrator at the Examinations Office.

In your request e-mail, please provide the following information:
- Name
- Student registration number
- Degree program
- Semester of the program

After your e-mail has been processed, your current list of grades can be accessed on KU.Campus.
You can find the list under the tab “My preliminary transcript of records”.
This overview of your grades is an official document of the KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt.

Please note that the PDF overview is not updated automatically.

Where can I get an overview of my grades for an application for a semester abroad?

If you require an overview of your grades in English so that you can apply for a semester abroad, please contact your responsible administrator at the Examinations Office.
In your request e-mail, please provide the following information:
- Name
- Student registration number
- Degree program
- Semester of the program

Your administrator will provide you with a current overview of your grades in English.

What can I do if elective modules are missing in my overview of grades?

If the elective area of the overview does not list all elective modules that you have completed successfully and in full, please contact your responsible administrator at the Examinations Office and ask them to include the module in question in your degree program.

Please provide your administrator with the relevant personal data (name, degree program, student registration number) and the relevant module number of the missing module.

Objection proceedings

Against what can I file an objection? How can I file an objection?

You can file an objection against examination decisions concerning your person either in writing or orally for the record. 

- Examination result is published including information on the right to appeal: one month after publication
- Examination result is published without information on the right to appeal: one year after publication

Please file your objection to the University’s Legal Affairs Department at: Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Abt. V: Recht, Ostenstraße 17, 85072 Eichstätt, Germany. You can also file your objection in person: Legal Affairs Department Abt. V: Recht, Ostenstraße 17, 017-203 or at the Examinations Office.

Although it is not mandatory, we strongly recommend that you state the grounds for your objection. This statement should set out in detail why you think that the examination decision is wrong from a student’s point of view. You can also submit the statement detailing the grounds for your objection at a later point in time, for example when you have to observe a certain deadline for filing the objection itself. However, please make sure you submit the grounds for your objection in a timely manner; otherwise, a decision may be taken on the basis of available records.  

What are the consequences of my objection?

Your objection has a suspensive effect. This means that the examination decision against which you have filed the objection, cannot be implemented until a decision has been made on your objection.

For example: If you file an objection against the notification of failure of the Bachelor’s examination at the final attempt, you can continue your studies until a decision on the objection has been made. If the objection is rejected at a later point in time, the notification on the failure of the Bachelor’s examination at the final attempt enters into full force and effect. This means that your studies are failed – irrespective of any subsequently completed coursework or examination achievements. However, you can have acquired skills transferred and accredited to other degree programs, provided that these are compatible.

How are objection proceedings implemented?

The KU Legal Affairs Department involves the respectively responsible board of examiners in the objection proceedings.

In case of objections against grading decisions, the so-called re-assessment procedure is applied: The examiner is given the opportunity to re-assess his/her first grading of the examination by taking into account the reasons for objection brought forward by the objecting student. The re-assessment procedure can also be effected separately, i.e. without being part of objection proceedings. In case of objections against grading decisions, the objection authority reviews the proceedings for errors of law.

Can objections against an examination result lead to a lower grade?

As a rule, the re-assessment procedures must not bear negative consequences for the examinee (reformatio in peius - prohibition of changes for the worse). However, there are exceptions to the prohibition of reformatio in peius, if, in the context of the revaluation, new errors are revealed in accordance with the existing evaluation criteria or if attempted cheating is disclosed.

 

Can I revoke my objection?

The objecting student can revoke his/her objection at any time during the objection proceedings, provided that no decision has been taken. Revoking your objection is subject to the same formal requirements as filing an objection: The revocation must be made in writing or orally for the record. The revocation of your objection has the consequence that the notification or examination decision becomes binding. The objection procedure is terminated. You will not be able to file an objection against the same examination decision again. Depending on the point in time of your revocation during the proceedings and the administrative effort caused, you may have to pay for administrative expenses. You do not have to pay for administrative costs in case of a timely revocation or small administrative effort.

 

When is the objection procedure terminated?

A notification will be issued at the end of an objection procedure: If the student’s objection is sustained, a positive notification of remedy (Abhilfebescheid) is issued free of charge (the original notification or original examination decision is rescinded). If the objection is rejected, a notification of rejection (Widerspruchsbescheid) is issued; as a rule, a notification of rejection is connected to administrative costs of € 50.00 which have to be borne by the objecting party (thus by the student).

 

Can I take legal action against the notification of rejection?

It is permissible to take legal action against the notification of rejection. The notification of rejection contains information on the right to appeal which describes the correct way of taking legal action.

 

...Bachelor's/Master's thesis

Registration/topic for the final thesis

Registration for the Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis

As soon as the requirements for issuance of the topic for the Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis are met in accordance with the respectively applicable examination regulations (specific regulations in the examination regulations of the respective degree program, or, if applicable in the KU General Examination Regulations), the final thesis can be registered at the Examinations Office.

To register your final thesis, please complete the PDF registration form (the form can be found on your degree program’s website) in full and electronically, print it, sign it and submit it to the Examinations Office with all signatures in the original immediately after your supervisor has issued your topic.

Please note that the maximum permissible length of your degree program must not have been exceeded at the point in time of submission of your final thesis.

Can I change the topic of my final thesis after issuance?

The topic of a final thesis must not be changed after issuance; however, for students of degree programs in Eichstätt, it is possible to specify your topic in greater detail within the discussed topic area before submission.

This means that upon submission of the final thesis, the thesis title must not necessarily correspond to the original topic word-by-word in any case, provided that the change of title was developed with the student’s consent and that the change does not lead to a fundamental change of content of the academic discussion of the topic. This accounts for the fact that in some cases, specifications of the topic only emerge during the development process of the paper but should still, within the framework of the issued topic, be reflected in the final title that is to be documented.

A change to the original title must be applied for by the thesis supervisor in writing and must be approved by the board of examiners. The corresponding form is available here.

If a change to the title was effected after issuance of the topic, this form must be attached to the thesis upon submission.

Every final thesis must include a declaration by the student confirming that they have prepared their Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis themselves. This declaration must be signed by the student (no digital signature!) and must be an integral component of the paper.

For example, students may use the following wording for such declaration:

Non-disclosure notice

If your Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis contains confidential information, e.g. details provided by companies, results, surveys etc. and if such information must not be accessed by third parties, the thesis must contain an integral non-disclosure notice.

The Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis titled “insert thesis title” contains confidential data and information. This thesis may only be accessed by the reviewers and authorized members of the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt. Copying and/or publishing this Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis or parts thereof is prohibited without the explicit consent of the author.

The exact number of copies to be submitted is specified in the examination regulations for each degree program.

Can I also submit my Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis before expiry of the deadline?

You can submit your final thesis to the Examinations Office as soon as you finished working on it. This can also be before expiry of the submission deadline.

 

When do I have to submit the final thesis at the latest if the submission deadline falls on a weekend/public holiday?

If the submission deadline of your final thesis falls on a weekend (Saturday, Sunday) or a public holiday, the submission date for the final thesis is postponed to the next possible working day (Monday – Friday).

 

Do I have to submit my Bachelor’s/Master’s thesis to the Examinations Office in person?

It is recommended that you submit your thesis to the Examinations Office in person during the office hours. Like this, you can be sure that it is actually received.
