In exceptional circumstances, the submission deadline can be extended up to a maximum of four weeks. Exceptional circumstances must be proven with official written documentation such as medical certificates, attestations etc.


The thesis is to be submitted in due time (see § 188 BGB) at the examination service. When sent by post the post stamp must state the last day of the submission deadline at the latest. For verification purposes the posting receipt (date and signature of the recipient office) must be saved.

When sent by post the following addresses can be used:
