Testing method for examinations abroad

In accordance with the decision of the faculty board of 12/2/2009 and the decision of the examination boards of 10/14/2015, in particular cases written examinations of the faculty for Business Administration and Economics of the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) can be taken at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) partner universities outside of erasmus area, as long as the same testing conditions can be guaranteed.

This requires an application to the relevant examination board, with valid reason, no later than four weeks before the date of the examination. Furthermore these requirements must be met:

  1. You must prove that you are studying at a partner university on the date of the examination. The partner university, outside of erasmus area, must declare that the same testing conditions of the European University Viadrina are guaranteed.
  2. You must prove that you either did not have the possibility to take the exam before leaving for abroad, or after returning to European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Moreover, it is not possible to take the exam during the second examination period while abroad if you were not registered for it in the first examination period, even though you would have had the opportunity to take the exam at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). Please note that during a leave of absence (Beurlaubung), you are not allowed to participate in course examinations at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder).
  3. The examination abroad must be taken at the same time as the exam is held at Viadrina. It could happen that you won’t be able to take the exam due to a time difference. This is, for example, the case if the exam at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) starts at 8:30am, which would be 2:30am in Columbia.
  4. Exam registration must be completed by the announced deadline via viaCampus (see right-hand box). For a five Euro fee per exam you can also register at the examination office by the same deadline.
    Exam deregistration is possible via viaCampus by the given deadline (see right-hand box). Deregistration is fee-free if done via Hisportal by the same deadline. For a five Euro fee deregistration can also be processed at the examination office by the same deadline. After the deregistration deadline has passed deregistration is only possible in case of illness. In case of exam non-attendance due to illness, a doctor's note must be submitted to the examination office immediately after the examination. Otherwise, the missed exam is counted as having been failed.

Please use the following form for your application:

If your application is approved by the relevant examination board, the further steps are completed through the Department of International Affairs of the European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder). After the approval from the relevant examination board you must then contact the International Office of the foreign university to request the provision of an invigilator for the examination. The name and e-mail address of the invigilator should be sent to Torsten Glase or Aleksandra Klecha (outgoing-wiwi@europa-uni.de).
