As the number of participants per examination date is limited, it cannot be guaranteed that every application for an examination date can be permitted. Therefore the procedure to find an examination date is as follows:
  • Apply for your wanted examination date at the PtU
  • After positive feedback, enroll in TUCaN
Students should apply for an examination date at least 4 weeks in advance (see application deadlines) at the secretary´s office or by e-mail sending the wanted examination date, matriculation number and mobile number.
