All exchange students living on campus in Würzburg will have the opportunity to take invigilated exams at the end of the semester under strick hygiene regulations at our faculty (for security concept for the implementation of attendance examinations click here). The chairs will make efforts to offer alternative exam forms (coursework assessment, papers/essays or oral/written exams in digital rooms) to students staying at their home countries but taking our online courses.
REGULAR EXAMINATION TIME
Exams take place at the end of each semester. Exam registration must be completed separately, i.e. you have to pre-register to exams ahead of time. The faculty’s exchange coordinator is responsible for the exam enrolment. For each exam passed at the faculty (with few exceptions), exchange students will earn 6 credit points. Please inform our exchange coordinator by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org about the exams you wish to take in our faculty.
Deadline for exam registration: mid-December for exams of the winter semester; or mid-June for exams of the summer semester.
Please include the following information in your e-mail:
- your name
- your immatriculation number
- titles of courses that you want to sit an exam in (lectures and seminars)
Detailed examination timetables can be found here.
TIME OVERLAPS: EXAMS AT JMU & BEGINN OF A NEXT SEMESTER AT YOUR HOME UNIVERSITY
Some exchange students have to leave Würzburg prior to the exam period to resume their studies at their home universities. We offer these students - depending on the chair - either:
- to take written exams at our faculty before the student's departure or
- to take written exams under supervision of an academic of the exchange student's home university.
The simulaneous exams must take place at exactly the same time as in Würzburg and students have to find suitable supervisors themselves. Students interested in this option are asked to email by mid-January (for winter semester) and by mid-June (for summer semester) using their JMU email account. The email should include the following information:
- First and last name
- Exam to be taken
- Student ID at JMU Würzburg
- Student ID at home university
- Copy of JMU student/library card
- Email address at home university
- Name, title, official position and email address of supervisor at home university
Please talk first with the respective professor about the possibilities the chair offers students who must leave Würzburg before the end of the exam period.
For further inquiries, please contact our exchange coordinator email@example.com
TRANSCRIPT OF RECORDS
At the end of the semester, the exchange coordinator at our faculty will send you an official document, called Transcript of Records, listing all credit points and grades that you earned during your stay with us.
The transcript will be sent by e-mail to your e-mail address and your home coordinator's address, listed in the Study Information System. The transcripts will not be sent by post unless a student asks for it.
Should you need a general transcript of records listing all courses and grades earned in all faculties/centers of our university (e.g. the Center for Languages), please send an email with all individual transcripts / certificates to our colleagues in the central International Office: firstname.lastname@example.org
