Academic Progress Check in the Study Programs at Physics Department

In principle exams you did not pass may be repeated as often as required – apart from exams of the first year in the Bachelor program (GOP) and required additional fundamental subjects assigned during aptitude assessment for a Master program. But each semester a specified amount of ECTS credits are required which in turn requires the passing of exams.

The required ECTS credits in the academic progress check follow the basic rule that you may only get two semesters (worth 60 CP) behind the regular study plan. For the Bachelor program this results in the credit requirements given in the following table:

End of semesterrequired [CP]regular [CP]
3 30 90
4 60 120
5 90 150
6 120 180
7 150
8 180

For the Master programs this results in the credit requirements given in the following table:

End of semesterrequired [CP]regular [CP]
3 30 90
4 60 120
5 90*
6 120

If you do not meet these requirements after the second examination period at the end of semesters 3 to 7 in the Bachelor or 3 to 5 in the Master you failed the study program finally. If you do not meet these requirements after the 8th semester in the Bachelor or the 6th semester in the Master all exams you did not yet pass are counted as failed and need to be passed within the next semester.

In addition to these requirements, students in the Master's programmes must have passed examinations after the second semester which are specified in the respective subject examination regulations**. In The Bachlor's program this requirement is fulfilles by the GOP-regulations.

Technically the check is usually performed about a month after the end of the semester. Hence all passed repeat exams are included. If you already handed in your thesis, the grades are still missing but it is expected a passed then we will include the credits of thesis and colloquium as well.

As soon as you have the impression that you might get in conflict with the academic progress check at the end of the semester please contact us as soon as possible. Discuss your situation with the program manager to seek a solution for your problem.


(*) If you have reached in the four physics master's courses (KTA, KM, BIO, AEP) after the fourth semester exactly 60 ECTS of the advanced studies courses you can only have 85 ECTS after the fifth semester (25 ECTS from the first half of the  research phase). In exactly this case, the examination board automatically grants a suspension of the deadline.

(**) In the four physics master's programs (KTA, KM, BIO, AEP) you must have passed at least 10 ECTS of the special courses.
