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 (opens in new tab)).

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 (opens in new tab), an extension by half of the regular completion time and no more than 13 weeks will be possible.
