Guide to Examinations and Course Recognition

Course Recognition (Transfer Credits)

Recognition of Completed Coursework

Obtaining Transfer Credits for Completed Coursework (Course Recognition)

You can apply to receive EUF transfer credits for coursework you took before starting your current degree program, or for coursework you took abroad, through a process called "Anerkennung" (Recognition). For this you need to fill out a special form: either the "Anerkennung von Studien- und Vorstudienleistungen" (Form for Recognizing Prior Coursework) or - for external coursework - the "Antrag auf Anerkennung von erbrachten Studienleistungen" (Application for Recognition of Coursework Completed at a German Institute of Higher Education).

Take the completed form and all relevant evidence (certificates, course diplomas and/or transcripts) to the designated institute representative, who can then officially recognize the coursework. Once that person has signed and stamped your form, please submit it and all relevant documentation to the Service Center for Examination Matters (SPA), addressed to Karin Schulz-Sommer (Helsinki Building, mailbox number 39).

For students in the bachelor’s degree programs in International Management and European Cultures and Society and the master’s degree programs in European Studies, and International Management Studies (IMS):

To request recognition of completed academic coursework, please present the relevant evidence (certificates and/or transcripts) together with the Form for Recognition of Prior Academic Achievements to the university staff member responsible for the relevant module. You can then submit the signed and stamped form together with copies of all relevant evidence to the SPA IIM.

If you need to request recognition of coursework completed abroad, please use the "Anerkennungsantrag" (Form for Recognition of Coursework Recognition).

Appealing an Examination Grade

Appealing an Examination Grade 

If you object to the grade you received for a particular exam, you can file a written appeal with the Examination Committee. But you are required to do so without undue delay– no later than one month after the examination grades are published. To file the appeal, send a letter to the Central Examinations Office in which you clearly outline the reasons for your appeal. 

Notification of Illness / Withdrawing from an Exam

What to Do if You Are Ill on the Day of an Exam / Emergency Withdrawal from an Exam

If you cannot take an exam because you are ill, and the exam withdrawal deadline has already passed, you must inform the Service Center for Examination Matters immediately .


On the same day that you report being ill, you are required to have a doctor fill out a formal document ("Bescheinigung der Prüfungsunfähigkeit;"see download below) certifying your unfitness to take an examination. This document must be sent by you to the Service Center for Examination Matters (SPA) that same day. As a temporary solution, you are allowed to send this certificate in to the SPA by fax or email. But you will need to send in the original paper copy of the certificate within three days.

For university purposes, your illness officially starts on the date that appears on your doctor's certificate. The university will not recognize any illness prior to that date. 

What happens if you fail to comply with these procedures:

If you fail to promptly inform the Examination Office (SPA) of your illness in such cases, the exam will show up in the system as Insufficient (grade 5.0) with the explanation "student was not present." In this case, you will not be able to repeat the exam in the future.

Compensation for Disadvantages

Recognition of Special Needs / Compensation for Disadvantages

Section 3, subsection 5 of the Higher Education Act of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (HSG) requires that universities accommodate students' special needs. The regulations for recognizing special needs ("compensation for disadvantages") are included in the examination and academic regulations for each degree programs of Europa-Universität Flensburg. These regulations govern the following matters:

  • Disabilities or prolonged illness
  • Preventing the unemployment of expectant and new mothers and the legal regulations for parental leave
  • Obligations to care for children under the age of 14 in one's own household
  • Obligations to care for close relatives with legally recognized nursing needs

For information and advising services about special needs recognition, please visit our

Exam Registration and Withdrawal

Registering and Withdrawing from Exams

As student at EUF, you are required to register for both examinations and courses within the official registration period using the form provided for this purpose by the Service Center for Examination Matters (SPA). Normally, students register for courses and examinations at the same time.

Registration: For module or sub-module examinations, you need to register in the Studiport online portal at least two weeks before the designated examination date.

If you have any problems registering for an exam, please contact the Examination Office (SPA) in a timely manner. The staff there will be happy to assist you.

It is not possible to register for an examination after the examination deadline has passed. In that case, you can postpone taking the exam until the next available exam date.

Withdrawing your registration for an exam: If you decide not to take an exam for which you have already registered, you must cancel your registration for that exam in Studiport at least two weeks before its scheduled date.

Fourth Examination Attempt (Joker)

The Fourth Examination Attempt (Joker)

Section 12 of the GPO stipulates the number of times a student in the Educational Science program can take examinations. Generally speaking, students are allowed to repeat an examination twice (in other words, you can take an exam a total of three times) You can petition to have this rule expanded as follows: In two modules of your choice, you may request to take an exam an additional (fourth) time  if you did not pass it on your third attempt. To request this so-called "joker" attempt, you need to submit a petition to the Examination Committee for Educational Science. Below you will find the petition form.

Important:

If you want to make use of the "joker" option, you need to request it within one month of the date when EUF releases your grade for your third examination attempt. Any petitions filed after this date will not be approved!

Getting a Head Start on Your Master's Degree

Getting a Head Start on Your Master’s Degree

The addition of section 2a of the GPO 2105 for Educational Science stipulates that:

  • registered students in the B.A. program in Educational Science
  • with at least 150 ECTS
  • who have advanced to at least the sixth subject semester in a degree component program [Teilstudiengang] within the bachelor’s program in Educational Science

may register in parallel for up to ten credit hours per week per semester in courses within a Master of Education program according to GPO 2015 or GPO 2020, in subjects for which they have fully completed the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.

If you meet these criteria and want to complete coursework for a master’s program while finishing your bachelor’s degree, then you can apply to the Examination Committee for admission to parallel registration for the master’s degree program.

Please note the following deadlines for such applications:

  • May 15 for Spring Semester
  • November 15 for the Fall Semester

Applications filed after these deadlines will not be considered.

Repeat Examinations (Term Papers)

Applying for Permission to Repeat a Written Examination (Term Paper Exam)

Because the registration period for repeat examinations in Studiport sometimes expires before grades for term papers are released, it is possible to register to resubmit a term paper ("deadline 2") via the form below (in German only). You must complete the registration fourteen days before the date of the examination or the submission deadline for the term paper. If the failing grade on a term paper took place one or more semesters ago, you can register via the normal channel in Studiport before the first deadline.
