Notification of sickness

You can withdraw from an examination without giving a reason or by providing reasons. However, it is imperative that you observe the regulations on withdrawal in the respective examination regulations.
Withdrawal with a valid reason may be possible if the reasons are reported without delay (without culpable hesitation) in writing, made credible and proven. The necessary evidence to substantiate the case must be enclosed.


If the candidate fails to attend or withdraws due to illness, this has to be proven without delay by a medical certificate and submitted to the Examination Department.

As of April 2021, the medical certificate can be exclusively scanned and sent by e-mail or fax (+49(0)631 205-3532). However, you are required to keep the original for the length of your studies and provide it to the university upon request.

Important note: Furthermore, no certificate of incapacity to work will be accepted.
