General Information

Introduction

The students within bachelor’s, master’s, and teaching programs of the University of Leipzig must register for courses, which are organized into modules. At the beginning of each semester, a module registration takes place in which the students within bachelor’s programs can either apply to participate in chosen modules (Choice Subjects) or register immediately for compulsory modules (Core Subjects). In master’s programs, the module registration will be confirmed immediately.

Exam Registration

The final registration is also the exam registration for the respective module. Attendance of a module or class alone does not warrant the participation in a module exam.
Subsequent enrollment in a module can only take place when a specific form has been signed by the respective teacher of a module. This is possible for up to four weeks after the start of classes and is not possible after this.


Repeating an Exam

If you fail a module’s exam, you must repeat it within one year (Second Attempt). If you don’t appear for this or if you fail once more, you are only able to have a chance at a third attempt by submitting a formal request to the Examination Board within your study program. If this request is approved, you will have to complete and pass the module’s exam at the next available examination date. Other than this, there is no other way for you to participate in an exam. For compulsory modules, de-registration hangs in the balance.
Please be aware that you cannot re-register for the same module the following year if you are still registered in the module. If you fail a module’s exam, you only have the right to repeat the exam. If you would like to participate in the classes again, please speak with the respective teacher or contact the Helpdesk.

Please be also aware that you are only able to deregister from an exam by deregistering from the module itself. If you miss the cut-off date for deregistering, you will remain registered for the exam and the deadlines for passing exams continue to be valid. The failure to participate in an exam (i.e. if you fail to turn in a term paper at all) will not save you from failing. Even then will the deadlines continue to be valid, even if you decide to have a break semester.
If you stay registered and fail an exam, you will have the right to repeat an exam. You are not entitled to a spot in the module in the following year. So if you notice that you will not be able to participate in an exam in that semester, please deregister from the module within the given deadline. Only this way will you be able to register the following year and have a spot in the module.

    Module deregistration

The registration for modules belonging to one’s core subject takes place online on Tool on a first-come, first-serve basis. In certain cases, the core subject’s registration team can be contacted for an on-site registration (see overview below).

During this phase, register yourself for your core subject’s modules, which also means you are automatically registered for the module’s exam. The same applies for students who are taking elective courses. For bachelor’s courses within the choice module area and key skill modules, apply within the given time frame for the preference algorithm. You can find out if you were assigned your preferred modules and how you can confirm these in the next phase.

Tool

Modules that are not compulsory within the institute’s bachelor’s modules (i.e. choice and key skill modules) require a confirmation of their acceptance. Compulsory modules within a bachelor’s program and modules within a master’s program have already been registered for in the previous phase and do not require additional confirmation. The list of allocated modules in regards to your preferences will be released on March 29th, 2022 (at around 12:00pm) in Tool. You can discover which choice and key skill modules were assigned to you by going to the section labelled ‘Register Info’ in Tool. There, you can also find out how you can confirm your seat in the module. If you miss the confirmation, your seat will expire and you will no longer be guaranteed a spot in the module.

The confirmation of the assigned choice modules as well as the key skill modules occurs via Tool on March 29th, 2022 at 12:00pm until March 30th, 2022 at 11:59pm. Modules belonging to your core subject and in master’s programs do not have to be confirmed. Certain faculties have varying deadlines. Please be aware of the information given on Tool and on the web pages concerning a respective faculty’s module registration.
If you have questions, please contact the registration team in the Helpdesk.

Helpdesk

The instructions for switching seminars and belated module registration are only valid for modules within the Faculty for Social Sciences and Philosophy. For modules belonging to other faculties, other rules and deadlines can apply. Please turn to the Study Offices of the respective faculties.

Study Offices

Between October 10th, 2022 and November 7th, 2022, you have the chance to switch to different seminars within a module or, if space is available, register for a different module belatedly. Please be aware that the form for this is no longer available on this page starting November 8th, 2022. In this case, please contact the Helpdesk, which will explain the further procedure.

  • Switching between classes is only possible if you are already registered for the respective module.
  • Switching without an official transfer through the Study Office is not allowed.
  • Without a module registration, you are not registered for a module exam. Pre-exam and exam merit will not be recognized.
  • Signed forms must be submitted by November 7th, 2022 to the faculty’s Helpdesk, ideally via email. Switching seminars or registering after November 7th, 2022 is only possible if a justified request is approved by the respective institute’s exam board.

FACULTY’S STUDY PROGRAM EXAM BOARDS

If you would like to deregister yourself from a module during the semester, then you have the chance between October 7th, 2022 at 9:00am until January 7th, 2023 at 11:59pm.

  • October 7th, 2022 until November 7th, 2022
    Module deregistration in Tool. You can find all your modules unter ‘Registration info’. Change the status of the respective module to ‘not confirmed’, then click Save.
  • November 8th, 2022 until November 22nd, 2022 at the latest
    During this time, online deregistration from a module is no longer possible due to module registration data being imported from Tool to AlmaWeb. If you would like to deregister during this time, please do so in the AlmaWeb system.
  • November 22nd, 2022 at the latest until January 7th, 2023
    During this time period, deregistering from modules is only possible via AlmaWeb. Log into your account and go to the menu point “Registration status”. There, you will see the modules in which you are registered and from which you can deregister. You can find more how-to guides in the AlmaWeb portal under Help > Guides.


Please be aware:

  • Deregistering from exams is only possible according to the steps above.
  • After the deregistration deadline, deregistering from a module is no longer possible (also via the Exam Office directly). In this case, withdrawal from exams is only possible with a justified reason (i.e. certified long-term sickness, and circumstances beyond one’s control), which then has to be submitted in written form and then approved by the respective Exam Board.
  • If deregistration from a module takes place within the deadline, any completed achievements in the module will be void (according to §5 of the respective study program’s exam regulations)
     

Please also be aware that you can only deregister from an exam by deregistering from a module. If you miss the deadline, you will remain registered and the deadlines for passing an exam continue to be valid. Refusing to take an exam (i.e. if you don’t turn in a term paper) will not save you from failing. The deadlines continue to be valid, even if you decide to take a break semester.
