Online Oral Exams

During the Corona crisis, the university foresees oral online exams to substitute the oral exams which are currently not possible. The examiners of the institute will agree on taking oral online exams, if students requests them.

For this, some pre-conditions must be met on the side of the student:

  • a camera showing the student's full upper half of the body at a neutral place (no aids) and without distractions,
  • a microphone able to transmit answers of the student in clear and understandable form,
  • a computer with sufficient Internet bandwidth to transmit camera images and audio from the microphone.

Examiner, assessor and student will be able to see and hear one another. As usual, the assessor writes a protocol of the examination. Neither the examiner nor assessor nor student are allowed to record the examination session.

The examiner may terminate the exam at any time, if he comes to the conclusion that

  • the student uses prohibited aids, or
  • the quality of the connection is so low that a qualified examination is no longer possible.

The exam then has to be repeated in full at a later date. With the registration to an online oral exam (especially marked in the system), students agree with these special conditions.

Besides, the procedure is the same as outlined above for ordinary oral exams: registration in the system and finding an examination date with our secretaries by e-mail.
