Information about the exams in the summer term, 2021

The centrally organized exams of the summer term take place between the 9th of August and the 2nd of October. We as stuvus wish you all the best for the upcoming exams!

As with the last rescheduled exam phases, there are some special factors to consider due to Corona. You can also find all of these in the university's hygiene concept.

Please also note that new examination rooms will be used this semester, including the sports hall in the Keltenschanze, the "Hochschule der Medien" on the campus Vaihingen and the "Hochschule für Technik" on the campus in the town centre. There are also some other rooms that are used only very irregularly. Therefore, please inform yourself below how to find these rooms and plan enough time to find them.

Important rules for the exams

You can find all the regulations for the examination in this PDF, and in the Corona guidelines for this term.

Information of the Examination office concerning the exams

We have summarized the most important regulations for the exams here for you:

  • In principle, the general hygiene and distance regulations apply.
  • You can not participate in the exams if you:
a) are obliged to remain in quarantine due to the coronavirus
b) show typical symptoms of infection with the coronavirus, namely fever, a dry cough, a disturbance of the sense of taste or smell
c) refuse to wear a medical or FFP2 mouth-nose covering

Please note that no proof of a test, vaccination or medical certificate is required or may be demanded in order to take part in an examination.

Please also note: As has been known for some time, the S-Bahn station "Universität" will be closed from 31 July to 13 September 2021 due to construction work on the S-Bahn main line between the Hauptbahnhof and Vaihingen. A replacement service will be provided. You can find more information on the VVS website. Please allow extra time on your way to your exam.

We would also like to take the opportunity to list the most important information about the upcoming exams:

  • Withdrawal from the exams is possible up to 1 day before the exam without giving reasons
  • If someone belongs to a risk group and has concerns about writing in the large examination room with all other candidates, he or she can submit a request to the examination board chairperson with a medical certificate for a separate examination room. Please submit the application early, as it still has to be approved and the examiners must organize the rooms. Frau Eicken, the representative for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses, can provide information on this (www.uni-stuttgart.de/handicap)
  • Problems regarding the deadline for orientation tests can be clarified with the examination board
  • Oral exams are possible online in exceptional cases

Your cooperation is always required for all measures taken, so please all help to prevent the spread and pay attention to the following information:

  • Keep your distance
  • Please refrain from physical exchange with friends and acquaintances before and after the exams
  • Wear a mask on the campus (where the minimum required distance of 1,5 metres can not be upheld) and when entering and leaving the examination rooms and buildings (medical mask or better), once you have taken your seat, you can take of your mask
  • In the smaller examination rooms, there is regular ventilation (every 20 minutes), so wear appropriate clothing here if necessary.
  • Stick to the marked paths
  • Stick to the order of filling the seats
  • Arrive ahead of time
  • Please leave the buildings and campus promptly after the exam

We would like to thank you very much for your help and understanding.
Together as a university, we can enable a safe exam period!

Good luck with the exams!

Sustainability and reflection in teaching

What use are the best innovations if they turn out to be ideas that harm our society in the long term and destroy our livelihoods?

From this question it becomes obvious that it is essential to deal with one's own responsibility and the responsibility of one's own discipline. The ability to reflect critically is the core of sustainable thinking and acting and should be accordingly integrated into teaching.

„The University of Stuttgart implements innovative concepts in research and teaching in order to provide knowledge and strategies for a meaningful and sustainable development."[1]

Mission statement University of Stuttgart

We in the student council are also thinking about how sustainability and reflection can be better integrated into teaching at the University of Stuttgart. Since the beginning of 2020, there has been a working group within the Department for Sustainability, which deals with this and would like to encourage the integration of appropriate subject-related courses in as many degree programs as possible. In this, the importance of action for a fair and sustainable society is to be considered and discussed. Here, sustainability is not limited to the ecological aspect, but includes all 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The educational concept "Education for Sustainable Development", for example, shows how this can be possible.

Education for Sustainable Development

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) enables people to think and act in a sustainable way, i.e. to understand the impact of their own actions on the local environment and on people in other parts of the world, to be able to imagine the impact on future generations, and to make responsible decisions as a result. ESD is also about empowering people to become "change agents" who are committed to transforming societies to be socially just and ecologically inclusive. ESD is not primarily an additional learning content, but manifests itself primarily in changed methods of knowledge and competence transfer.

The competencies to be taught through Education for Sustainable Development include the following[2]:

  • Thinking and acting with foresight
  • Interdisciplinary work
  • Adopting other perspectives
  • Dealing with difficult decisions
  • Questioning one's own ideas and ways of thinking

You can find more information about Education for Sustainable Development, for example, on the German website meine-bne.de.

Our motivation

In an interconnected, globalized world, it is necessary to be sustainably educated in order to deal with the complexity of interdisciplinary problems and to solve them in harmony with our environment. We believe that a university that provides knowledge and skills to change society must also provide competencies to deal with them in a sustainable way.

These competencies enable students to live up to their social responsibility and to navigate well in an increasingly complex world.

The University of Stuttgart has the chance to become a pioneer in sustainable education in Germany with the university-wide implementation.

The reason why students from non-academic families are relatively underrepresented at German universities is not their lack of talent. Rather, there is a lack of role models in the family environment. Access to the necessary information is much more difficult for them. ArbeiterKind.de meets this challenge by providing comprehensive, diverse and easily accessible support for pupils, students and parents.
