Case of Hardship

Due to the current situation regarding the coronavirus, some students will not be able to participate in the regular exams in the winter semester 2020/2021. This includes students who are abroad and cannot enter Germany or who belong to the corona risk group. For these groups, the department is planning alternative examination options, such as an oral examination via a video conferencing system or an additional examination in the next semester.

If you belong to one of the two groups mentioned above you can apply here for a hardship case application for such an alternative examination possibility. The examination board will first collect all applications until January 15, 2021, and then decide on all cases at hand.

Please note that the examination board will only decide whether a case of hardship exists or not. The actual type and conduct of an alternative examination based on your case of hardship is solely at the discretion of the examiner in charge.
