Important information on the change of examination regulations in the BA LuS

Unfortunately, false information and rumours are circulating as to how exactly services already rendered will be recognised in the event of a change to the new examination regulations.

We would like to expressly point out that all information which does not originate from officially advising persons is to be treated extremely critically.

Important: Binding deadlines for recognition of stays abroad / C1 certificates

To submit your necessary documents for the recognition of staying abroad or for the C1 language certificate, binding deadlines must always be observed. Please hand in all the necessary documents to Dr. Nicole Hützen in time. 

The current deadline for the summer semester 2019 expires on 30.04.2019, i.e. documents submitted after this date will not be passed on for recording until the end of June.

This is generally done every two months.

These intervals must be observed as a matter of urgency to ensure that the recognition process runs smoothly.
