FAQ about teaching and exams during the corona crisis

The following questions are coming up more frequently at the Examination Office at this time:

How can I submit my thesis?

Final papers can be placed in an envelope addressed to the Examinations Office in the mailbox in front of room 1301 in the University Tower during the building's opening hours or handed in at the main gate outside the building's opening hours. If printed and bound copies cannot be produced due to the closure of the copy stores, final papers must be emailed as a pdf document to pruefungsamt@informatik.uni-kiel.de to meet the deadline. It is mandatory that the submission be from the Stu mail address and include a statement of originality. The bound version (no spiral or ring binding) must be submitted in triplicate as soon as possible and include a declaration that the printed version corresponds to the digital version. If the evaluation of the work has already been completed before the reopening of the copy stores, the submission of a copy with declaration for the archives of the examination office is sufficient.

I need a certificate, how do I proceed?

All certificates should be requested by email from your stu email address at this time. We usually send the appropriate certificates by email. If this is not possible, we will print the documents and send them to you by mail. Please note that in the current situation this may take a few days and you should therefore request certificates early.

How do I register my thesis?

Use the form "Registration for a thesis Bachelor/Master" from the form center to register the thesis. Then send it (without signature) from your stu email address to pruefungsamt@informatik.uni-kiel.de. Further processing will also be done electronically.

How do I proceed at the moment if I want to enroll provisionally in the Master?

Students who have 150 credit points can provisionally enroll in the Master's program. Normally, you need a performance overview signed by the examination office. In order to save time and effort, we will send this overview (without signature) by email directly to the Student Secretariat, and you will receive a copy. For further enrollment, please follow the instructions of the Student Secretariat. This procedure has been agreed upon with the Student Secretariat.

Is there a general extension for theses?

There is no general extension of the processing deadline for theses. They must be printed or also handed in electronically by the deadline (see above). As usual, an extension is only possible with justification (e.g. if a necessary laboratory is closed). In this case, send an informal request (with copy or agreeing justification of the supervisor) to pruefungsamt@informatik.uni-kiel.de.

Free attempt in the winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021

All examinations taken and failed after January 23, regardless of the type of examination, will be considered as a free attempt. A fail by not appearing also leads to a free attempt. This regulation does not apply to final thesises.

For students who care for or look after children under the age of 14 and whose learning or examination situation is significantly impeded due to the closure of schools and day-care facilities, any examination taken and not passed in the winter semester 2020/2021 or summer semester 2021 is considered a free attempt. A copy of the child's birth certificate must be submitted to the Examinations Office as proof.

Application of §7/9 of the new/old exams regulation

Due to the restictions in teaching caused by the pandemic the application of §7 (exams regulation 2019) respectively § 9 (exams regulation 2015) is suspended. According to the current state this applies for winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021.

Recognition of OpenCampus modules

OpenCampus modules can only be brougt into the study programs of the Department of Computer Science if they are not related to computer science. In this case they can be brought into the bachelor's degree program in computer science as a supra-disciplinary key competency. This excludes e.g. modules like Deep Learning or Projects about neuronal networks. The same rules apply for Master degree programs. In these programs only modules without a computer science reference can be recognised as open elective (Computer Science) respectively basics and surrounding (Business Information Technology)
