The remaining 24 credit points are acquired from Business Administration elective and free elective modules:

  • Financial Management
  • Financial Economics
  • Management
  • Marketing
  • Internal Accounting/Controlling

(You can also select ‘Information Systems’ from basic studies.)

* Students taking the core subject of Computer Science may not complete any Information Systems courses (basic or in-depth studies).

Retaking examinations:

Students who fail partial examinations may retake them twice.

If a module examination consists of many partial examinations, failing students are only required to retake the partial examinations they did not pass.

Students who pass partial examinations may not retake them (except as free attempts).

The second subject examination is ultimately deemed failed if all retakes for a compulsory module have been exhausted and the student has failed to pass the relevant module examination with a mark of at least ‘sufficient’ (4.0).

Free attempts: If the total number of credit points attained by the end of the third semester is more than 90 (from core subject + second subject), students may retake or substitute examinations they have already passed up to the amount of the difference between their total and 90 credit points (any free attempts will be taken into account from the core subject). Credit points acquired during a vacation semester or recognised from other study periods and credit points acquired by completing an internship are not included in this calculation. You must communicate which examination(s) you wish to retake or substitute to the examinations office by registration for examinations in the fourth semester at the latest. If you pass an examination taken as a free attempt, the higher of the two marks is counted. If you are awarded the mark of ‘insufficient’ (5.0) for an examination taken as a free attempt, the previously passed examination will be counted. These regulations do not apply for part-time courses.

 

You can find detailed information on registering for examinations and the examination schedule (with registration and withdrawal deadlines) on the Examinations office web pages.
