Examination Committees

The examination committee (PA) of a study program deals with all decisions regarding examination matters apart from evaluating examinations. Furthermore, it monitors the adherence to examination regulations and advises the Rector in matters of objections. The examination committee comprises members of the professorate, non-professional teaching staff as well as a student, who is, however, not entitled to vote but merely has an advisory role.

Study Commissions

The study commission (StuKo) of a program is the advising committee of the Enlarged Faculty Council for the field of teaching in the respective program. The study commission works out proposals for the further development and improvement of the course and the course contents. The examination regulations and the necessary changes in examination regulations are initiated by the study commission. Another task of StuKo is to decide on the distribution of decentralised quality assurance resources (QSM). All decisions, however, must be approved by the Enlarged Faculty Council.
