Important information about enrollment during final exams

According to the admission and enrollment regulations of the University of Freiburg from the 20.09.2007, the candidates have to complete their exams (oral, written exams or final essays) while still being enrolled at the University of Freiburg. Meaning that you have to be enrolled as a student until you submitted all requirements of your programme. You don't need to be enrolled for awaiting the grade of your thesis.

Inability to take part in an examination due to illness

If you fall ill and are physically not able to take part in an exam or if you get sick during your master thesis, then it is very important to send in a medical certificate to the examination office. Your doctor has to fill in a form which is provided on this website. It is important to get the doctors certificate on the very same day that your illness begins (you cannot claim illness previous to the day of your doctor's appointment/visit) and to inform the examinations office straight away via email or phone.
