  2. The institute creates the thesis in the campus portal, you will receive an automated email asking you to register for the thesis in the system.
  3. The examiner enters the award date and publishes the registration in the system, now the thesis is visible to you.
  4. The study program service checks whether the requirements have been met. If all requirements are met, you will receive an email that the thesis has been approved and you can start working on it.
  5. You prepare the thesis and give the presentation within the processing period of 6 months. The date of submission is entered in the campus portal.
  6. The examiner assesses the thesis, enters the grade in the campus portal and releases it. The study program service will publish the grade and it will be visible to you in the system.

Please note: The examiner has 8 weeks to grade the thesis. If the thesis was your last examination, you can request a so-called 4.0 certificate from the examiner so that a "minimum pass" is recorded. You can use this to generate a certificate of title, which you can use for job applications.

 

You will find the application form linked below.

  • Go to a study advisor and submit the application form together with the required documents (certificate, transcript of records).
  • "In lieu of credits" (credits that you would like to have recognized for a KIT module) must be recognized by the person responsible for the module; these can be found in the module handbook.
  • Important: Recognition must be applied for within the first semester after enrollment.
  • If there is equivalence with regard to the skills acquired, this will be confirmed by the subject examination.

Deregistration at the end of the semester you finished your degree has the advantage, that you still have the status as a student and the associated health insurance.

You will be deregistered “ex officio” if you not re-register yourself for the upcoming semester. But please notice that in this case you won’t get your certificate and you can’t register at another german university.

If you want or have to leave Karlsruhe before your deregistration date, you have the option to send a representative with a written power of attorney.
