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.


Further Instructions

  • 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 receive a grade
  • Students who don’t show up for the exam or don’t hand in their essays receive a 5,0 – they get the result "did not show up". They need to retake the exam the next time it is offered.

*All these payments need to be done directly to the bank and cannot be done directly at the university in cash.

Due to the extraordinary situation worldwide, we from the AStA have spoken with the transportation companies. Students who are demonstrably unable to enter Germany due to Corona can also apply to us for a refund for the semester ticket for the coming semester. The deadline for this is 19.04.2021.
Even if you do not enter Germany, you have to transfer the semester fee on time every semester.
The application for the refund must be complete with us. In digital form it is also okay.
The email address is:

Complete means:
    - The application form filled out and signed
(You can find it on our homepage, in German and also in English).
    - A proof of successful enrollment.
(you can find it in Studiport under 'Administration of Studies' and there under 'SAcademic Certificates', there is a PDF document 'Immatrikulationsbescheinigung').
    - A proof of non-entry into Germany (for example from the embassy of your own country or from Germany).
Not wanting to enter Germany does not count as a reason for reimbursement.
    - As well as a proof from your study program that no attendance events will take place in Flensburg in the spring semester 2021.

For international transfers, there may be fees charged by the bank that will reduce the refund amount.
There have been students who have used 'TransferWise' to transfer the semester fee. TransferWise operates worldwide and thus the transfer fees are lower. You may want to consider this to save on transfer fees.
If you have any questions, please contact us by mail, as our office is not always staffed.
In spite of everything, we wish you a great semester.

How to check if you are correctly registered for the upcoming semester after paying the semester fees?

-         Please log into Studiport and check your immatrikulationsbescheinigung (you can find it via "Administration of Studies à Academic certificates). In the PDF you should be able to see in which semester you are matriculated. Maximum 4 weeks after the deadline for paying the semester fees has passed, your Immatrikulationsbescheinigung should automatically be updated to the upcoming semester (the one you paid the semester fees for).

How to identify if there is an issue with my enrollment in the upcoming semester?

-         After those 4 weeks have passed, everyone who paid the semester fees should already be matriculated in the upcoming semester. You can see if you’re matriculated in the upcoming semester if under "Studienfach-" you see:

  • an odd number in the case of an upcoming Fall semester- Ex. 3, 5, 7,...
  • an even number in the case of an upcoming Spring semester. Ex. 2, 4, 6,...

If you see an even number, like 2, 4 or 6th and you will continue studying from September onward, this means that you have a problem.

If you see an even number, like 1, 3 or 5th and you will continue studying from March onward, this means that you have a problem

What to do if you have a problem?

-        Option 1: if you paid the semester fees before 15.06., then please send an email, from your student email to the student secretariat – In this email please attach a copy of the bank statement that proves that you paid the semester fees. It might be that there was an error somewhere in the background and this way you can correct it and everything should then go back to normal.

-          Option 2: if you paid the semester fees after the deadline and you paid the fine associated with the delay, you also need to send both documents to and the secretariat to consider your matriculation. Every time you pay the semester fees after the deadline, you always need to contact the student secretariat and show them both documents that prove that you paid the fees and the fine.

-          Option 3: if you haven’t paid the semester fees, you should consider doing it as soon as possible if you want to continue studying. Because of the late payment you also need to pay the fine. Then you need to send both payment statements to

Who doesn’t need to pay the semester fees for the Fall semester 2021/22?

All students that are handing in their thesis and / or their final exam before the upcoming semester starts. You need to pay the semester fees because you need to be a student to be able to hand in any examination.

Why do you need to pay the semester fees?

If you want to be a student, you need to pay the semester fees. If you are not a student, you cannot register for courses in Studiport next semester and you cannot hand in any examination in the upcoming semester.

You also need to pay the semester fees if you are doing your semester abroad in the Fall. Only students can be graded Erasmus funds, only students can go to one of our partner universities, only students can get their courses completed abroad in EUCS.

You should definitely check if everything is ok with your matriculation and solve this issue as soon as possible. In September with the start of the Fall semester, it might take too long to solve these issues and you might suffer the consequence of not being able to register for courses / examinations. The same can happen in March with the strt of the Spring semester.


  • Students need to register for examinations, in case they want to take them and students need to de-register from examinations in case they don't want to take them.
  • Registration and de-registration are always possible until up to 14 days before the exam date. The valid exam date for the purpose of registration/de-registration is the one mentioned in Studiport.
  • Students who are not registered in an examination are not allowed to take the examination. In case they take the examination, and it is corrected, there is no way to insert the grade in the system, so the student will have to repeat the examination the next time the module is offered.
  • Students who are registered and don't attend the exam fail the exam automatically and need to wait for the next time the exam is offered to register for it.
  • Students can only fail each examination 3 times. After that students are not allowed to take the module anymore. If the module is a mandatory module in this study program, students are not allowed to complete the study program. Furthermore, students are now allowed to complete the same study program in any other university in Germany.
  • Students who are registered for an examination and cannot attend the examination because they are sick at the day of the examination need to hand in a doctor's note to the examinations office on the same day of the exam. More information and forms can be found here under "Notification of sickness".
  • The same rules apply if the examination has the form of a paper/essay. In this case, the doctor's note needs to explicitly mention from when until when you will be sick. The date for handing in the work will be extended in the same amount of says as your sickness.
  • If students are correctly registered for an examination and fail that examination (5,0), they are allowed to re-take that examination at the re-take date (normally within the same semester as the first attempt). If the failed examination consists of an exam and the re-take date falls within the re-take examination week, then students need to register in the re-take examination normally using Studiport.
  • If the failed examination consists of a paper or an essay or if the failed written examination is to be re-taken at some other point that not the re-take examination week, then students will need to contact the examinations' office to register for the re-take examination. The same 14-day deadline for registration still applies when possible. 
  • Contact of the examinations' office <> (Please use your university email, send your matriculation number and the name and number of the examination you want to re-take.)
  • It is the students' responsibility to correctly register and de-register from exams within the deadlines.
  • For questions about examination dates as mentioned in Studiport and about the re-take dates, please contact the EUCS secretariat <>

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: Link

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:

The proof that you are a student can be obtained directly by you in Studiport, by clicking in:

Administration of Studies --> Academic Certificates

and then by downloading a document called "Immatrikulationsbescheinigung" (= proof of matriculation)

Every semester, after you pay your fees the old one will disappear and the one corresponding to the new semester will replace it.

In Germany it is important that you keep all of these documents, just in case the administration asks you for them. So, download the respective certificate once a semester and print it or keep it safe in a folder, just in case.

If you neglect to do that and you need any past certificate, you need to write an email to the student secretariat indicating which past certificates you need (indication of the respective semester) + your student number + this email needs to be sent from your official university email.

You can contact Ms. Ruhle in the Student Secretariat using the following email <> or directly in HEL 018 (after pandemic).

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.

It is important that you register for an examination until 14 days before the examination. After that, it is no longer possible for you to register and as a consequence, you are not allowed to take the exam. If you do, it will not be corrected. The same is valid for the writing of papers.

If you have registered correctly for all exams in time, it is important that you get the proof that you are correctly registered, just in case some technical error appears. In this case, you can prove that you did your registration correctly.

You can get this proof in Studiport by clicking on:

Administration of examinations -->  Info on registered examinations --> by clicking on the small (i) next to the name of this study program --> and by clicking the PDF button on the left corner of your screen, after the list of exams you are registered for.

Please save this PDF well, just in case something happens. Without it, you cannot prove that you were registered, in case there is a technical or any other issue with your registration

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 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.

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.

Yes, you do. When you complete the semester abroad with an Erasmus+ agreement or in any of our partner universities, you can only do it because you are our student, otherwise you would not have the same advantages when going abroad. For that reason and because the semester abroad is also a part of your studies, you need to continue being a student with us throughout that time.

For that reason, you need to pay the semester fees.

You might however get the chance to ask for a refund of part of the semester fees already paid. That is done directly with AStA.

Autonomous Project

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 for that 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.

However, there is a course called "Reflection on Projects", that you need to register for and attend during the semester, in order to complete the full module and receive a grade and your 10 ECTS.

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.

Supervision list:

-           Art & Scenography: Svea Bischoff

-           Research Philosophy: David Schweikard

-           Research Sociology: Sören Carlson

-           Entrepreneurship: Larissa Zierke

Moodle - Information

Access to Moodle courses

Please pay attention to the fact your access to moodle courses is blocked at the end of the semester in which the course was offered. This means that if you want to have access to the information on your moodle course, past the end of the semester, you need to download all the information during the semester in which you are taking the course.
This is especially relevant if you want to re-take examinations in the second attempt date, as you will no longer have access to the course materials.
A diligent student makes sure to have access to the course materials when they need to use it. It is the obligation of the student to take care of this, as no one else will be able to take care of this for them once the access to the materials is closed.

Emails to lecturers

E-Mails to lecturers and to the university administration are formal emails. Here are some points to consider:

1.       This is a formal email, therefore greeting like the ones you use on social media are not to be used. So, please don't greet your lecturers with "hi", "Hello", "How are you doing", etc.

2.       The correct way to address your lecturers in an email are:
- Dear Mr. Smith (last name)
- Dear Ms. Smith (last name)
- Dear Catherine Smith (first and last name), if you want to write a gender-neutral email.

3.       Please always be cordial. Don’t demand answers. Be polite and use words like "please" and "thank you".

4.       Don’t just ask questions out of the blue without any context, as lecturers have many students, and they will not remember the conversation that you had with them without you reminding them about the content of the conversation. So, instead of something like "I would like to write my paper on the topic that we discussed (2 weeks ago)" try something like "I would like to write my paper on the topic X (describe the topic in detail)".

5.       Don’t just finish your email at the end of a random sentence. Always finish your email with something like "Best regards", "Kind regards", "Best wishes", or something similar, and please write your first and last name at the end of the email and your student number.

6.       Please always contact your lecturers or the university administration using your student email, always sign the email with your name and write your student number.
