Information about examinations and registration deadlines at the Faculty of Computer Science and Mathematics
The Faculty is currently identifying examinations which can be altered in format due to the present coronavirus situation to examinations not requiring physical presence or other formats.
In these extraordinary times, the chairs and professors will announce detailed examination formats, dates/times, examination modalities and locations as soon as possible via Stud.IP.
Postponed 2nd-attempt examinations (requiring physical presence) from the winter semester 2019/2020
According to current planning, examinations in bachelor’s degree programmes and the Faculty’s teacher-training programmes as well as examinations in master’s degree programmes with low participant numbers shall be conducted starting in mid-June. Examinations in master’s degree programmes with high participant numbers shall be conducted July or August.
International master’s students who are currently not in Germany or students who cannot come to Passau due to travel restrictions should inform the chairs/professors directly about their attendance problems in order to be able to assess the need for those students to be provided another opportunity to be examined around October (with a sign-up period from 02 June 2020 until 13 September 2020). Please note that this is possible only for students who had originally signed up for each module’s 2nd-attempt examination in the winter semester. In case you have already requested to be removed from the participant list and wish to sign up again, please notify the Examinations Office accordingly.
Students may unregister for examinations until 31 May 2020 without any need for justification.
Only in exceptional cases can students sign up for 2nd-attempt winter semester examinations retroactively until 31 May 2020.
To do so, please e-mail the corresponding contact person at the Examinations Office.

Equivalence of courses
For a transfer of credits a lecturer of our faculty has to check and attest to the equivalence of the course to a course offered here in Passau. Example: If you have taken a course in a Master's programme taught elsewhere (e.g. image analysis) and have passed the examination, you may apply that your course is equivalent for a course here in Passau (e.g. Bildverarbeitung) and for a transfer of credits. Contact the leturer of the course (e.g.Prof. Sauer for image analysis) and bring the description of your course with you.
Use the forms provided on the Examinations Office page:
- Master Informatik (M.Sc. INF)
- for further forms see the German version of this page
Fill in the courses for which you want to apply for a transfer of credits on the left and the equivalent courses here in Passau on the right. The signature of the lecturer here in Passau should be given on the far right of the page.
Once you have filled in the form, send it to the chair of the Board of Examiners. There is a special mailbox near the janitor's office of the IM building.
