Important information for planning your studies and examinations

  • Successful completion of accompanying exercises for a lecture ("Übungserfolg") is carried forward automatically. This means that if you fail or deregister from an exam, you can retake the exam in a later semester without having to complete the exercise again.
  • In accordance with the examination rules, deregistration from seminars, labs and project groups is not possible.
  • Deregistration from lectures of both Bachelor and Master program is to be carried out via BASIS. For all students, deregistration needs to be carried out until one week before the examination date of the first attempt.
  • Courses offered at b-it by faculty or co-opted members of the institute of CS are acknowledged if they are listed in our module book. Courses offered by other docents at b-it are acknowledged if an official certificate of RWTH Aachen is presented. This does not apply to courses listed in Life Science Informatics.

     

    New regulation for sick notes

Please be aware that the examination office will not accept yellow "Arbeitsunfähigkeitsbescheinigungen" which are handed out by default by most physicians. You are *required* to have your doctor fill in a special form, which you have to download and print from our website.
