Organisation of study

The CEC NISA/NEISSE study is based on the double degree concept of studying at both universities, TUD (IHI Zittau) and TUL (FE TUL), and o

A student is obliged to gain a  minimum of 30 credits at foreign partner university during the whole study, i.e. two years (credits for the elaboration of the Master Thesis at IHI/TUD: Master Thesis and Research: Design and Strategies cannot be used to fulfil this requirement).

Each university applies its own study rules and requirements for studies.


Re-registering for next semester:

As laid down in § 11 Matriculation Regulations (ImmaO) of the TU Dresden, every student has to re-register for each semester in due time and form to continue his study. In the event that a student does not comply with this obligation, his registration is cancelled in accordance with § 13 ImmaO.

Re-registration is the timely payment of the semester fee as well as the study fee (as appropriate) due. The basis for the semester fee is provided by the Fee Regulations of the Dresden Student Union and the Student Council of the TU Dresden as well as the University Fees Ordinance. As the fee regulations are subject to constant change, the contribution currently payable is always announced only at the beginning of the re-registration period in question.

Upon receipt of the fee, your Semesterbogen (semester documents), including student ID and immatriculation certificate, for the coming semester will be printed out and sent to your current postal address registered in the Student Portal. Please ensure that your postal address stored there is always up-to-date.


The principles of the examination procedure and further information (deadlines, assessment, credits, free attempt “Freiversuch” etc.) are listed in the examination regulations of the course of study in question. The module descriptions (Annex to the study regulations) detail all necessary examinations and prerequisites for each module and explain how the module grade is calculated.

TU Dresden does not have a central examination office. The examination administration is done by the individual, decentralised examination offices.

Credit and Examination System

Studies in Bachelor, Master and doctoral programme programmes are realized by means of a credit system. Each subject included in the study programme is assigned a certain number of credits. A student obtains credits after passing the subject; i.e. in the case of subjects concluded by a credit after passing the credit, in the case of subjects concluded by an examination (or by a credit and an examination) after passing the examination. At the same time, the student must complete the subject in the academic year in which s/he has registered for it, and at the latest within the deadline set in the given academic year's Calendar. According to the study programme, a student must obtain the number of credits equal to at least the standard number of years of studies multiplied by sixty (180 credits in Bachelor’s, 120 credits in Master’s, 240 credits in Doctoral study programme). The credits must be obtained for subjects required by the study programme and the study plan.


Examinations and remedial examinations are usually organized during the lesson-free period specified by the Calendar of the given academic year. With the teacher´s approval, examinations can be taken also during the holidays or during the semester, but at the latest by the deadline specified by the Calendar of the given academic year.

Enrolment for studies

An applicant becomes a student on the day of enrolment for studies. A student can be enrolled for the next academic year or semester provided s/he fulfils the conditions for enrolment into the next year or semester of study set out in the relevant study programme and in the Study and Examination Regulations.
