Please note that there won’t be any further extensions to the deadlines indicated in the above table. You will have to have completed your Diploma studies until the given deadline. Please take this into consideration when planning your studies. Further information on the consequences of the Diploma program‘s termination:

Your Diploma program will be definitely discontinued on the date given above. This means that you have to take all examinations necessary for the Diploma degree until this date. No examinations will take place after this deadline, including oral re-examinations, repeat examinations and examinations set after the deadline, but belonging to the past semester. An examination counts as taken if you took part in the examination or, in case of final theses, special projects or seminar papers, if you submitted the assignment. The examiner can mark the assignment after the deadline. Please note that you have to register your final thesis, special projects or seminar papers in time, so you can take advantage of the full completion period specified in the examination regulations. If you register the final thesis, special project or seminar paper at a later date, the completion period will only last until the day the Diploma program terminates, even if this period is shorter than the completion period specified in the examination regulations.

After the discontinuance date, it is no longer possible to graduate in your Diploma program. According to § 62 para. 2 No. 2 LHG, you will therefore be officially deregistered towards the end of the semester in which the study course is discontinued.

If you should not be able to complete your Diploma studies in the given time, please note that it is still possible to register for the correspondent or a similar Bachelor’s program if you have been deregistered because of the Diploma program‘s termination. This means that there’s always the possibility to complete your studies in a Bachelor’s program and a consecutive Master’s program if you fulfill the requirements for being admitted to these programs. It is not possible to enroll directly in a Master’s program.

You can find further information on being admitted to a higher semester in a Bachelor’s program, especially on requirements, necessary application forms and deadlines on the following website:

If you consider switching to a Bachelor’s program, please note that some Examination Regulations take failed examinations from other degree courses into account. If you have failed examinations in the Diploma program, that are also part of the Bachelor’s program, these failed attempts will be taken into account in the Bachelor’s program, and you can take less re-examinations in the Bachelor’s program. Whether failed examinations are taken into account can be found in the Examination Regulations under "Transfer of Study Periods, Program and Examination Achievements".
