Friedrich Schiller University is a large university with several independently operating examination offices. That might be confusing, especially for students in multi-subject programmes. In single-subject programmes (e.g. B. Sc., 180 LP), only one examination office is responsible for you. In multi-subject programmes (e.g. teacher training), up to three examination offices can be relevant to you.
Please refer to the following overview for our degree programmes:
No. The ASPA is only responsible for Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts programmes. This mainly refers to study programmes of the faculties for social sciences and humanities.
The ASPA cannot answer enquiries from students for whom other examination offices are responsible, as there is no access to the respective study accounts or examination files for data protection reasons.
Documents, applications and theses received by the ASPA must therefore be forwarded from there to the respective examination office responsible. This can lead to your documents not reaching the respective study and examination office in time, which can cause further difficulties.
Therefore, please make sure that you address your concerns directly to the examination office responsible for you.
No. The application forms and documents provided by the ASPA are tailored to the degree programmes, the internal work processes, the examination regulations, which may differ in some cases, and the decisions of the relevant examination boards.
The same applies to the application forms and documents that we make available to you.
Since the ASPA and the decentralised examination offices are different institutions that work independently of each other, different application forms are used accordingly.
On the websites of the faculty and university you can download:
The examination boards discuss applications at regular intervals in the examination board meetings. You will receive written feedback from the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations.
An informal application should be written in letter form and must contain the following information:
Appropriate supporting documents must be enclosed with the application. The application is only valid with a signature!
You can also use this form [pdf, 1 mb] de for your informal application: Please tick the box "special request" in the form.
The signed application can be scanned and sent by e-mail, by post to the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations or submitted in person as an original to the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations.
You have to submit the sick note to the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations within three working days of the illness. The sick note can NOT be made by e-mail, fax or telephone.
In the case of missed practical laboratory course or seminar dates or portfolio examinations, you have to submit a copy of the sick note to the lecturer.
Sickness certificates/attests can be deposited in the mailbox in the corridor of the Office of Studies and Examinations or sent by post (Office for Student Affairs and Examinations of the Faculty of Chemistry and Earth Sciences, Humboldtstr. 11, 07743 Jena). Label the sick note/certificate on the back with your matriculation number, study programme, examination number, examination name and examination date.
You can use sickness notification form [pdf, 1 mb] de.
You can find the information: in the study and examination regulations de, in the module catalogue, in Friedolin, in the journal of legal notices of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena de ("Verkündungsblatt der Friedrich-Schiller-Universität") and on the website of the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations.
By taking an examination, you automatically confirm your ability to take the exam.
That regulates the respective examination regulations. An examination can be repeated a maximum of twice.
Registration must take place no later than ten weeks after the start of lectures. Up to this point, it is possible to withdraw a registration directly via Friedolin without giving reasons, after which the registration is considered binding. For examinations scheduled within ten weeks, the binding registration must at the latest one week before the first examination date. For block courses, excursions or lectures with early pre-planning requirements, the faculty may set up different regulations.
You are obliged to check your examination registrations and deregistrations yourself. To do so, use the menu item "My exams" in Friedolin.
Please send a ticket to the Friedolin team.
Yes, you will be automatically registered for your 2nd attempt if it takes place in the current semester. Please note that you must take the exam on the next possible date.
Withdrawal from examinations is possible within the first ten weeks of lectures directly via Friedolin, provided that you did not yet complete any assessed coursework and examinations.
After ten weeks, withdrawal is only possible in cases of hardship or for other valid reasons.
In the event of withdrawal from an examination, sickness notifications must be submitted immediately (within three days) after illness to the Faculty's Office of for Student Affairs and Examinations (not to the module coordinator). A parallel cancellation (verbally or by email) with the module coordinator is recommended.
In case of illness, the student is not allowed to take part in an examination. If he/she takes part, he/she automatically declares that he/she is fit to take the examination. A medical certificate which is submitted after participation in an examination and before the announcement of the examination result can generally no longer be recognised, unless there are special circumstances.
You can find information on the assessment method of the module examination in the module descriptions.
A change of the assessment method is possible when applying for at the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations. The application must state the reasons, and it must include the examination date and the confirmation of the examiner (signature).
You can continue to take examinations until you are exmatriculated. From the day of exmatriculation, the right to take an examination automatically expires. You have to deregister registered exams that you no longer wish to take in writing at the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations.
The Teacher Training Examinations Committee announces that the following three criteria will be used to examine applications for hardship:
If the evaluation of at least one criterion is negative, a hardship application cannot be granted.
If it is a repeat exam that takes place no later than the second week after the start of lectures, there is no need to re-register for the following semester.
Exmatriculation before submission of the thesis is only possible if the thesis has been applied for and approved and if a written confirmation is given that the experimental part of the thesis has been completed. Here you can download the form "Confirmation of completion of experimental work". [pdf, 881 kb] de
We would like to point out that after exmatriculation, there is no longer any insurance cover on the part of the university.
Yes, de-registration can take place as soon as all achievements on the part of the student have been completed.
The form for de-registration can be obtained at the Student Service Centre ("Studierenden Service Zentrum", SSZ). In addition to the de-registration at the ThULB, the form also requires a de-registration at the Office of Student Affairs and Examinations. The de-registration at the Office of Student Affairs and Examinations can be made in person or the completed form can be sent by post to us (Humboldtstr. 11, 07743 Jena), enclosing a stamped envelope. We will then forward it to the ThULB or the SSZ.
The presentation of a routing slip from the Institute of Geosciences is required in order to obtain the signature of the Office for Student Affairs and Examinations on the de-registration form.
This is required by the institute so that no outstanding accounts/liabilities are left open by students leaving the university.
The routing slip forms can be obtained from the Administrative Assistant of the institute ("Institutssekretariat"), Burgweg 11
