If you have any questions regarding the “Rahmenprüfungsordnung” (basic examination regulations), the “Allgemeine Prüfungsordnung” (general examination regulations) or the syllabus and examination regulations relevant to your degree program, please contact the examination office during opening hours.
The examination procedure at the Bavarian Universities of Applied Sciences follows the basic examination regulations (“RaPO”). They comprise regulations for procedure, i.e. formal rules that apply to examinations in all degree programs. These include deadlines for retaking examinations and the maximum deadlines by which examinations must be taken.
In addition to the RaPO, the general examination regulations at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences (“POFH”) govern the specific regulations procedure that only applies to Augsburg UAS.
As well as this, each degree program has its own syllabus and examination regulations that set down what is to be tested. They include the examination subjects that you have to pass.
You are expected to keep yourself informed about the current examination regulations. It is your own responsibility to ensure that you are up-to-date with both the general examination regulations and those specific to your degree program. You will be held responsible for any absences or missed deadlines resulting from ignorance of the relevant examination regulations; this could prevent you from successfully completing your degree. In addition to the relevant legal norms, there are some recommended courses of action that offer assistance in meeting the university’s legal requirements.
Please refer to the examination timetables in the faculties
The day, time and location of the examinations will be published in the so-called examination plan that is hung on the notice board in each faculty. Please refer to these notices and bear in mind that dates may change. It is therefore a good idea to check the notice boards regularly, especially just before the examination period.
Registration for Examinations
Requistration for an examination is a formal requirement for taking the examination. It is essential that you register in good time to enable your faculty to plan the examination period, e.g. the allocation of rooms. You should register for examinations from the end of April to the beginning of May (summer semester) and the end of October to the beginning of November (winter semester). The university will announce the exact dates for registration in good time.
Registration takes place via the online server. The procedure is largely self-explanatory. Click to the german version of this website for brief instructions.
Exceptions from Online Registration (e.g. AWPF - Compulsory Elective Subjects)
- Registration for the compulsory elective subjects (AWPF) always takes place at the beginning of the semester on the servers of the Faculty of General Sciences.
- Registration for examinations in subjects outside the degree programme. For example, you are studying computer science and want to register for a subject in mechanical engineering. Unfortunately, this does not work online. Please use our form, which you can download here and send directly to the Examination Office.
- The registration for the diploma, master or bachelor thesis depends on the regulations of your faculty and the study and examination regulations applicable to you. You can register for this via your own set of forms, which you can obtain from the Examination Office.

Admission to Examination
You are considered to have been granted admission to an examination unless you receive notification from the Examination Office stating otherwise.
Non-admission: the Examination Office makes every effort to inform you as quickly as possible if you have not met all the conditions for admission to a particular examination. You can look up the general conditions for admission in the RaPO and POFH.
In some cases, special conditions for admission apply, such as the completion of practical courses, assignments, seminar papers, course attendance certificates or similar. If these conditions have not been fulfilled by the deadline, you may be informed that you have not been admitted to the examination shortly before it is due to take place. Please refer in advance to the relevant syllabus and examination regulations to see whether such conditions apply in the subject in question.
Withdrawal from Examination for Medical Reasons
Sometimes a student may become unwell before or during an examination. If you believe that you will not be able to take an examination for medical reasons, please apply to your faculty for a deadline extension as soon as possible. You will need to provide a doctor’s certificate. If you begin an examination and feel too ill to complete it, please notify the proctor and/or the Examination Board immediately. For information about the requirements for a medical certificate and a valid withdrawal from an examination, please refer to: Procedures for withdrawal from an examination for medical reasons.
Documents Required for the Examination
Please bring photo identification and your student identity card to all examinations
In the examination room, you will need valid official photo identification, your student identity card and written confirmation of the examinations you are registered to take in that semester. You must follow the proctor’s instructions.
Additional resources (e.g. calculators) may only be used if expressly permitted by the examiner, or if permitted in the examination plan (see notice board).
Cell phones: Taking a cell phone into an examination room will be considered as an attempt to cheat. The consequences of this are stated in § 6 RaPO.
Prohibition of Deception in the Examination Procedure
Exams are to be performed completely independently by each examinee. Unauthorized aids or faked or fraudulent performance in an examination may result in sanctions.
In the case of plagiarism, the Augsburg University of Applied Sciences is authorized to evaluate examination papers with "not sufficient" and to reject examination achievements. In serious cases, the examinee may be partially excluded from the examination procedure.
