In which cases is it possible to extend completion time for degree theses?

There is no general rule regarding extension of deadlines. If necessary and in justifiable cases only, you need to apply for an extension as usual with the examination board. The examination board will check and decide about the applications. Reasons for extension may be health issues or other issues such as impeded access to technical literature (§ 23 (5) APB (Allgemeine Prüfungsbestimmungen [general examination terms]) of TU Darmstadt).

Should the current situation jeopardise the completion of your thesis, please send an application in accordance with § 23 (6) APB to the Office for Student Affairs. In this form, you may apply for returning the thesis even if half of the completion time has passed already.

How long an extension of the completion time for degree theses will be possible?

In accordance with § 23 (5) APB (Allgemeine Prüfungsbestimmungen [general examination terms]) of TU Darmstadt, an extension by half of the regular completion time and no more than 13 weeks will be possible. Should the current situation jeopardise the completion of your thesis, please send an application in accordance with § 23 (6) APB to the Office for Student Affairs. Applying for the exceptional return of the thesis even though half of the completion time has passed already will be possible.
