Rules & Procedures

Failed a Module?

The following procedure, based on the Education and Examination Regulations for Civil Engineering, is used for failed modules:

  • The standard rule is and remains: A failed module must be repeated completely
  • If you want to use one or more parts of a module in your next year, a request must be submitted to the examination board. In the summer of each year, the progress of all students is evaluated. At that time, the examination board decides, partly on the basis of received requests, whether individual students can retain parts of modules. The guiding principles are:
  • The more modules the student has fully passed, the more favourable the decision will be. The higher the grade for modules and parts of a module, the more favourable the decision will be.
  • The aim is to avoid resits/compensations as much as possible. Permission may, therefore, be given to redo a particular part of a module.

Requests concerning test grades in the first year of the bachelor’s programme must be submitted no later than 15 July 2017, and requests for the second and third year no later than 15 August 2017.
