Minimum Academic Performance
Anyone admitted to a Bachelor’s degree programme from the winter semester 2022/23 onwards is obliged to complete 16 ECTS credits within the first four semesters following admission. Failure to achieve the minimum academic performance within four semesters will result in the expiry of admission to the degree programme concerned.
Students who were admitted to a Bachelor’s degree programme before the winter semester 2022/23 don’t face consequences on the part of the university, if they don’t achieve the minimum academic performance.
Students in Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Diploma degree programmes are considered to be active students respectively “prüfungsaktiv” if they complete a minimum of 16 ECTS credits or pass grades amounting to a minimum of eight semester hours per registered degree programme in one academic year. Each degree programme is taken into account separately. Examinations and grades from different degree programmes are not added up.
Students who actively take exams are essential for the calculation of the university budget. Higher numbers of active students mean that the university has more financial resources available for teaching and research and that the study conditions can be better designed.
Students must also provide proof of a certain number of positively completed academic achievements per academic year to obtain scholarships for academic excellence, Studienbeihilfe grants and family allowance.
