Module booking, deadlines and failed attempts

Can I still cancel my booked modules due to the new conditions?

Already booked modules of the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics could be cancelled until 23 March 2020, 12:00 noon.

In the first two weeks of May there will be an exceptional additional cancellation window. This is only valid for assessments which have not yet been completed by then. Further information will follow in due course.

Can all modules be cancelled during the additional cancellation window?

Yes. The same cancellation rules apply that you already know from the regular cancellation window. This means that all modules, except those whose examinations have already been completed before the cancellation window, can be cancelled without giving reasons in the additional cancellation window (4.-17.5.2020). Thus, if the examinations and module were fully completed before May 4, the module is exempt from such a cancellation; failed attempts, however, will be cancelled under the failed attempt rule.

Can modules still be booked now?

No, modules can no longer be booked.

Will all failed attempts be cancelled in spring semester 2020?

Any modules in the Spring Semester 2020 that end in failed attempts will be cancelled. None of the failed attempts of FS20 will be counted towards the number of allowed failed attempts of the respective study level (Assessment, Advanced and Master’s level); failed attempts of FS20 will therefore not affect your pool of failed attempts. Please note in this context that there are no additional study relief measures with respect to deadlines. All study regulation deadlines continue to run as usual.

The only exception: failed attempts in cases of fraud or dishonesty (e.g. due to unfair behaviour at examinations, plagiarism in written work, see section 11.2 of the program regulations) will not be cancelled.

Are failed attempts of already completed modules in FS20 also cancelled?

Yes, also these failed attempts will be cancelled.

Does the two-year assessment period deadline still apply?

Yes, the two-year assessment period deadline still applies. In order to ensure that the quality of stud-ies remains consistent, the assessment deadline is a central element at WWF. 

Both the quality of studies and the equal treatment of students must be ensured. It is guaranteed that all students have two years for the assessment level, which is already twice the regular duration of studies for the assessment level. Equal treatment is ensured as all assessment students have two attempts for all examinations - regardless of whether they are in the first or second year of the assessment level. 

In addition, this regulation ensures equal treatment of current and former or future assessment students by allowing assessment students of all cohorts to have two attempts for all examinations - regardless of whether they are in the first or second year of the assessment level. The corona-related circumstances are compensated for by the various measures taken in the design of the courses and the examination modalities. 

Does the two-year deadline period for conditions/restrictions still apply?

Yes, the two-year deadline period still applies in the case of conditions/restrictions. In order to ensure consistent quality assurance in the study program, the deadline for conditions/restrictions at WWF is a central element. 

Both the quality of the studies and the equal treatment of students must be ensured. It is guaranteed that all students have two years for the conditions/restrictions. Equal treatment is ensured as all students with conditions/restrictions have two attempts for all examinations - regardless of whether they are in the first or second year.
