Examination Board

The examination board is responsible for organizing all examinations. It is also responsible for recognizing previous periods of study, examinations, and credits; providing a list of examiners; and taking decisions regarding suitable examination conditions for students with long-term or permanent physical disabilities. In particular, the examination board ensures that the provisions of the General Study and Examination Regulations of TU Berlin (AllgStuPO) and the provisions of the Study and Examination Regulations for the respective degree program are observed.

The university professors have the majority of votes in the examination boards; the chairperson is elected from among them.

    Recognizing previously obtained credits

    To have credits recognized which you earned at another university, you must submit the Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits (Part B) together with a list of equivalent modules and your certificates of completion with confirmation from the other university to the examination board.

    You can find the study and examination regulations as well as the module catalog on the website of your degree program. The contact information for the examination board is provided below.

    Recognizing credits when transferring to another degree program

    Students from another university who want to request placement in one of the above degree programs must first have their credits recognized by the examination board. The board also makes a decision regarding placement in a degree semester.

However, you must also complete the Application for Recognition of Previously Obtained Credits (Part A). If you hope to be placed in a higher degree semester, you must submit your application to the examination board two months before the application deadline. The higher degree semester indicated on your application must be identical to your placement by the examination board.
