Important changes in study law

On October 1, 2022, the amendment to the Universities Act (UG 2002) will come into force. The changes will also affect you.

Parts of the amendment have far-reaching, study-relevant effects - regardless of whether you are currently studying or want to study again.

You can find all the changes here.


A relevant change concerns the recognition of examination achievements, especially in the case of a change of study: 

Recognition for examinations already completed before admission must be applied for by 30.09.2022 at the latest. After 01.10.2022, recognition of achievements already completed before admission is no longer possible.

Please contact the study program director as soon as possible for outstanding recognitions.

Explanations of this important change can be found here and on the Studienpräses office website.
