Erasmus Scout Programme

After having been accepted at the faculty of Spatial and Environmental Planning you will get a German Buddy (a German student at the RPTU) which you can contact already before the start of your stay abroad if you have questions. The buddy will especially help you at the start of your studies in Kaiserslautern and will stand by you if you have any questions.

Exam reigistartion

For the exam registration you need this form.  The form must be submitted to the examination office no later than one week before the examination.
The responsibilities arise depending on the department. Here you will find the staff responsible for you at the examination office.  Registration via the QIS is therefore not possible. A deregistration from the exam is possible until one day before the exam. Medical certificates must be submitted by 2 weeks after the exam. In the case of unexcused absence, the note "absent" will be shown on the transcript of records. The Transcript of Records will also be generated and issued by the Examinations Office after the end of the stay at the TUK.

Transcript of Records

To sucessfully complete a course you need to pass written or oral exams, pass an exercise or write and present and assignment. For each sucessfully completed course you will get a so-named "Schein". Please contact your lecturer to learn what is expected from you to complete the course. The "Schein" will be acknowledged by your home university if it was accepted in the Learning Agreement.  

To receive this Transcript of Records, contact the responsible office of the Examination Office at the end of your stay at the TUK. They will prepare the transcript for you.
