Examinations: Orientation examination

The student has to prove in the orientation examination that he/she has basic knowledge and skills in his/her study course and that he/she is eligible for the chosen course of study. The orientation examination is performed in a course-related fashion and has to be passed successfully by the end of the second semester, at the latest by the end of the third semester (with possible repetitions). If the student doesn’t pass the orientation examination at latest the end of the third semester, he/she will lose the entitlement for his/her studies unless it is not his/her fault. The responsible examinations board decides about such cases; the student has to apply for that evaluation.
