Exams take place during the first two weeks after the end of the lecture period (current examination dates can be looked up here). Exchange students register for their exams at the Faculty's International Office, respectively the Examination Office. Information will be provided upon arrival.

In case the examination period overlaps with the beginning of the following semester of the home university, exchange students can be offered pre-scheduled examinations. This requires the consent of the examiner of the course. The Faculty's International Office will provide detailed information about this process in due time, as well.
