All exchange students living on campus in Würzburg will have the opportunity to take invigilated exams at the end of the winter semester under strick hygiene regulations at our faculty. The chairs will make efforts to offer alternative exam forms (coursework assessment, papers/essays or oral exams in digital rooms) to students staying at their home countries but taking our online courses.

The faculty’s administrative 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.
