Exams and Retakes

The examinations for the languages Italian, Spanish and French will no longer take place as centralized final examinations from the 2022 semester onwards, but will be held in the last week of the semester.

Students who meet the following criteria can register for a retake exam:

  1.  Those who have attended their final examination but have not passed it;
  2.  Those who had an examination clash on the date of the final examination;
  3.  Those who were ill on the date of the final examination;
  4.  Those who had to take part in a university event, excursion, compact course or work experience placement on the date of the final examination;
  5.  Those who had to work on the date of the final examination.

Please note:

We do not accept holiday bookings as a valid criterion for registering for a retake exam.

Scenario 1: If you took the final exam but did not pass it, you are automatically registered for the retake exam. Please briefly confirm your participation in the retake exam via e-mail.

Scenario 2: Please have your participation in the exam confirmed by a written certificate (with letterhead or stamp) (unfortunately, a confirmation of registration is not sufficient) and use it to register for the retake exam via e-mail.

Scenario 3: The medical certificate must not exceed 3 days. Example: You were ill on 1 March 2022 and were diagnosed no later than 4 March 2022.

Scenarios 4 and 5: Please obtain written confirmation (on letterhead or stamped) that you were unable to attend the exam on the scheduled date, and use it to register for the retake exam via e-mail.

Please note: If you do not participate in the final exam without giving valid reasons (see scenarios 2 - 5), the exam is considered as failed (5,0). In this case, you have the option to repeat the exam at the next regular date (= one semester later). In this case, it is not necessary to attend the course again.

You have to register for the retake exam by e-mail at least 3 weeks before the exam date.

Location & approach

The campus of TU Dort­mund University is located close to interstate junction Dort­mund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dort­mund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dort­mund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the uni­ver­si­ty are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dort­mund.

To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.

The "Dortmund Universität" S-Bahn station is located directly on Campus Nord. From there, the S-Bahn line S1 runs every 20 or 30 minutes to Dortmund main station and in the opposite direction to Düsseldorf main station via Bochum, Essen and Duisburg. The university can also be reached by bus lines 445, 447 and 462. Timetable information can be found on the homepage of the Rhine-Ruhr Transport Association, and DSW21 also offer an interactive route network map.

The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.

The Airport Express is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
