Registration periods for the exams in ZEuS:

  • Summer semester (SuSe) from 01 June to 30 June
  • Winter semester (WiSe) from 01 January  to 31 January

You can choose any number of lectures independent of each other. Credits are earned by passing the respective exams. Registration periods for each exam can be found in the course catalogue when you click on the respective course. The above-mentioned exams are offered every semester. We do not offer follow-up exams within the same semester.

Exams that cover the subject matter of 2 partial lectures can only be taken as a whole. There are no separate exams for partial lectures of a module.

1Psychology students must participate in the double examination (8 ECTS). Exceptions are only made in case of prior recognition of a partial exam (e.g. previous performance at another university, previous studies).
Non-psychology students write
- either the written exam of the lecture "Introduction to Developmental and Educational Psychology" (4 ECTS)
- or the double examination based on both lectures (8 ECTS).
Attention: ECTS deviating from this cannot be awarded or certified. Possibly, non-psychology students can have their performance recognized to a different extent in consultation with their own departments. This does not require the approval of the Psychology Department."

2The module Perception and Cognition is an exception that allows you to write either the joint exam (8 ECTS) or one partial exam (Perception or Cognition with 4 ECTS). It is not possible to write 2 partial exams!

3The partial exam Developmental Psychology 1 can be written by students from other disciplines as a separate part of the joint exam "Developmental Psychology 1 and 2". The partial exam is rewarded with 4 ECTS. When registering, please make sure that you register for the partial exam (not the joint exam).

4The exam can be written by students from other disciplines as a separate part of the joint exam "Psychology of Health". When registering, please make sure that you register for the partial exam (not the joint exam).
