How to register
The registration in / deregistration from examinations can take place up to 14 days before the examination but no longer than that. After that deadline, it’s no longer possible to register for examinations and you will no longer be able to take part in the examination.
- For each module in EUCS, students need to register for the following things:
- Registration in each of the subjects in the module
- Registration in the exam in each of the modules
- Registration in the Module exam
· Example: EU-Law
- students need to register for the exam in the subject and for the exam in the module (even though there is only one exam in practice)
- The exam in the module always ends in 500, which means that the exam number that should be there is 680111500 (module exam) together with the number of the exam in the subject, that is 680111100.
- Registration in only one of these modules is not sufficient for students to be considered registered for the exam.
· Example: Research Methods
- there should also be two registrations… One finishing with 100 and one finishing with 500.
· Example: Society and Economy
- Students necessarily need to register for 3 classes to be able to attend the course, that is, for Society, for Economy and for the Tutorial Society & Economy. And then, when it comes to registering for exams, students need to register for the exam of Society, for the exam of Economy, for the exam of the Tutorial Society & Economy and for the Module exam – this module exam should also finish with the number 500. These are 4 exam registrations in total only for this module. Students need to register for everything for the registration to be valid.
- Students should register for subjects and for exams
- Students who not officially registered for exams/essays should not be allowed to take an exam
- Students who were not registered for an exam cannot re-take that exam
- Students who don’t show up for the exam or don’t hand in their essays don’t receive a 5,0 – they get the result "did not show up" and cannot re-take the exam because they never took it in the first place. They need to do the exam one year later
- Only students that get a 5,0 in the first try or were ill (and informed the SPA in time) get a chance to re-take the exam

Spring semester 2021 (FrSe 2021)

Payment of the semester fees in time = registration for the upcoming semester in time
It is your responsibility, as students, to pay your semester fees in the correct amount and within the deadlines given.

Please don’t leave the payment to the last day to ensure that your payment will not be considered a late payment (due to money transfer delays).
Late registration for the following semester:
If the semester fees are not paid within the deadlines mentioned above, the registration needs to be processed manually.
For that you need to take a copy of the document proving the transfer of the fees and of the extra fees (fine) to the secretariat in HEL 018 (email@example.com) AND you need to pay extra fees (a fine) for the delay. This is only possible until the end of March / end of September, depending on which semester you are applying to.

Purpose of the transfer: "8723-11101", "your matriculation number", "verspätete Rückmeldung (for ex.) FrSe 2021 - please write the information in this exact order
*All these payments need to be done directly to the bank and cannot be done directly at the university in cash.
- In order to complete the study program, students need to successfully complete the Module "Bachelor Thesis". This corresponds to 15 ECTS and includes the Colloquium (3 ECTS) and the thesis itself (12 ECTS).
- The B.A. Thesis corresponds to ca. 40 pages. The bibliography is not included in the 40 pages. The thesis is an assignment that must show that the student is able to solve one problem covered by the scope of the study program, with the use of the adequate methods, in a limited amount of time.
- The topic of the thesis is to be arranged between the student and the supervisor/s. Supervisor can be any lecturer of the university in EUCS. At least one of the supervisors needs to have a PhD.
- Students register for the colloquium in the usual way - via Studiport. However, registration for the thesis is made using a form that can be found below. This form is to be filled in with the title of the thesis and the signatures of the first and second supervisors. Once fully filled in, it needs to be given to the examinations office for the thesis request to be approved by the examinations committee. After it is approved, the student is notified of that fact. From that point on, students have the time of 4 months to write and hand in the thesis to the examinations office. The thesis will then be corrected by both supervisors.
- Registration: students are advised to register for the thesis before they start writing because their topic and choice of supervisors needs to be approved by the examinations committee. If the registration is not approved, a new topic / set of supervisors needs to be found. It may take some time between the registration and the decision of the examinations committee. This fact should be taken into consideration in the planning of the thesis. We suggest planning at least a period of 2 months between the registration and the handing in of the thesis.
- Students who have successfully completed their thesis need to complete all the bachelor modules in order to complete their bachelor
- An Anti-plagiarism affidavit needs to be attached to the thesis.
- In the end, you need to hand in 3 printed copies of your thesis, each one with a CD that has a readable file with your thesis.
- ADVICE: Students should find a supervisor while still in the 5th semester between December and February.
- You need to be registered as a student at the moment that you hand in your thesis. If you plan to hand in your thesis after the end of the 6th semester (that is, after the end of August), you need to have paid the semester fees in time.
Before meeting with the desired supervisor, students should already have an idea of a possible topic they would like to write about and of the possible methods needed to answer the question to be researched. Only after that should students approach a potential supervisor.
The first contact should be done via email scheduling an appointment to talk about the possibility of supervision and, if possible with the ideas gathered so far.
In the meeting students should already try to fix a title for the thesis with the first supervisor, so that they can already have a title when meeting the second supervisor.
The registration form should then be filled in with the title of the thesis and the signature of both supervisors and taken it to the examinations office. After handing it in, the examinations committee will check the registration and after it has been approved, students will be notified of that fact. From this notification onward, students have 4 months to hand in their final thesis (in both written and electronic form) to the examinations office.
The supervisors have 4 weeks to correct the thesis. If students have a specific deadline by which they need to have heir final bachelor certificates, they should check with the supervisors beforehand if there will be enough time to correct the thesis in this period. For that, a specific deadline for handing in the thesis should be arranged in advance with the supervisor.
After the correction, the grade will be sent to the examinations office and there it will take a period between 2 and 4 weeks to issue all the final certificate. You can request your certificate. Beware that the examinations office is expected to be closed between July 15th and August 15th.
This is just a generic advice. Please always talk to your supervisor and agree on all the specificities of your work with them.
Please submit three versions of your written paper and three electronic versions (CD-ROM). Please note that the electronic version may not contain any personal information (last name, first name, matriculation number, date of birth etc.) of students or supervisors as it will be subjected to a plagiarism scrutiny with ‘Docoloc’.
The CDs should be firmly attached/glued to the inside of the back cover of each paper copy and furnished with your name.
Please include a signed declaration/affidavit, that you are the original author of the thesis, at the end of your paper (attached/glued).

I still haven't received my student documents for next semester. What can I do?
Here are some of the questions that need to be asked in this situation:
- Did you hand in all your documents with the matriculation in the beginning of your first semester?
- Did some document expire meanwhile? And if so, do you need to hand in a new one?
- Is your insurance still valid or does it need some sort of renovation?
- Did you pay the semester fees in time? And if so, did you correctly indicate your name and student number in the payment slip?
- Did you change your address meanwhile and forgot to update it in Studiport?
These can all be things that went wrong. So please check all of these things beforehand and if something needs to be updated and then take it to the secretariat in HEL 018.
If you think that all is ok, then you need to go to the secretariat(HEL 018) and ask them directly what is wrong. It is better to go there directly than to send an email.
Here is the link to the office hours of the secretariat:
From 2020 onward, you should expect to find your semester ticket in Studiport by selecting My Functions --> Administration of Studies --> Academic Certificates --> Studienausweis (PDF)
Information on how to get your bus and train ticket can be found on the AStA page:
I'm in the 6th semester, do I need to keep paying semester fees?
Semester fees need to be paid as long as students still have examinations to complete. No examination can be completed by people who don't have student status and if they are, the grades cannot be inserted in Studiport anymore because the specific student account is blocked.
Students in the 6th semester need to pay semester fees, and therefore enroll in a 7th semester if they don't plan to hand in the thesis during the 6th semester but on the 7th semester or further down the line. This is valid even if the thesis is handed in one day after the end of the 6th semester.
If you didn't plan to extend your thesis writing time and for some reason need to - e.g. illness - it will be possible to pay the semester fees, as per requirement, and with an additional fine on top.
But the main message here is that you need to be a student when you hand in the thesis and that will be your last day of your bachelor. The correction time doesn't matter anymore. So, if you hand in the thesis at the end of the 6th semester and it is only corrected in the new semester, your studies are considered finished on the date of handing in the thesis.
My thesis supervisor doesn't reply, what do I do?
First, send another email. Lecturers receive many emails and they might have overseen yours, so please try again (at different times of the week, for example, not always on Sunday) to avoid that your email gets lost amidst the wave of emails that they receive. An email at the right time is more likely to be read.
If that doesn't work, try checking when the lecturer has office hours by researching them on the university website. Try contacting them either physically or per telephone during the office hours.
As a last resort, you can try contacting the EUCS head of studies to explain the situation and see what to do in your specific case.
When do I fail an examination?
- When you performed in a way which is insufficient for you to pass or when you are correctly registered for an examination and you don't show up / don't complete your task in due time. A fail is always graded with 5,0.
- If you fail because of insufficient performance, you can re-take the examination in the re-take period. If you fail because you didn't show up for the exam or failed to complete your task in due time, then you can only re-take the exam the next time the exam is offered - this is usually 1 year later.
- You are only entitled to fail an exam twice and to have three attempts at the exam (the first time, the first re-take and the second re-take). After that, you need to ask for a special permission, which might not be granted to you. And after that, if you fail, you can no longer complete the module. If it is a mandatory module, you can no longer complete the study program in this university or any similar study program in Germany.
I have failed an examination, now what?
If you have failed an examination, you will need to re-take the examination at some point.
For you to be able to re-take the examination, you need to register for the re-examination. The possibility to register for the re-take should be available in Studiport a few days to a few weeks after you receive the grade. Please check regularly.
Something else that you should do to be able successfully pass your re-take, you should ask the lecturer for feedback on why you failed the examination in the first place. Only by getting this feedback will you be able to understand where you did well and where there is room for improvement. This feedback will help you study and prepare for the re-take examination, so that you are successful in the re-take.
In case you are interested in completing an extracurricular internship, you can find below some ideas of places to search for.

Notes about the autonomous project in the 5th semester. (10 ECTS)
Please note that this module is completed by the execution of an "autonomous project". This means that there are no classes scheduled in this module and it is up to you to address the respective supervisor when you have a project to propose and schedule an individual meeting with her/him.
Once students decide on the autonomous project that they want to do, they can start preparing the necessary steps to complete it.
Steps that need to be completed:
- Write an exposé in logically explaining the project to be completed. This is a proposal of the work to be completed.
- Present the exposé to the lecturer responsible for the type of project to be completed (please see the list below). They will give students feedback and define the way that they can supervise the work.
- Write a portfolio – this is a step-by-step documentation of the project + reflection/self-evaluation of the work done.
- The students need to complete their final project and present it in a manner previously established with the supervisor.
