If you are struggling to balance your parental responsabilities with your studies, you may be allowed to opt out of an examination after the opt-out deadline has expired. Such exceptions are made in cases where a child is taken ill and needs care. Please contact the Examinations Office of the School of Business and Economics for advice.

Disabled Students

Students who are physically handicapped or suffering from a chronic illness often have to expend additional time or energy in order to attain their goals. The University of Münster provides special advice and information for these students.

Thus, for instance, disabled students who have to take an exam will be offered places in a lecture theatre which they will be able to get to without undue difficulty. They may also be allowed extra time to answer examination questions. Please contact the Examinations Office of the School of Business and Economics for advice.
