Decision of the Examining Board of the Faculty of Agriculture

As a reaction to the current restrictions in examination operations, it is now possible to conduct examinations in electronic form as a substitute. Both examinee and examiner must agree to the conversion to an electronic examination.

An extension of the submission deadline of 6 weeks is granted for all current Bachelor and Master theses. An individual application for an extension of the deadline is no longer necessary. This exception is valid as long as Bonn University Library is closed.

In order to meet the deadline for Bachelor and Master theses, it is sufficient to submit a pdf-file of the thesis electronically to the examination office. The printed and bound version can be submitted subsequently by post. The certificate can only be issued when both versions, electronic and printed/bound, have been submitted to the examinations office. This exception applies until normal teaching activities have been resumed.

These regulations apply to all courses of study at the Faculty of Agriculture with the exception of the courses of study M.Sc. Nature Conservation and Landscape Ecology and the State Examination in Food Chemistry. Both courses of study have their own examination boards, which can make different decisions.
