After successfully completing all necessary examinations for the BA Philosophy, you can apply for completion of studies. This process consists of three steps:

Step 1: Filling out the graduation form

Please open the (german) form "Abschlusspass I BA Philosophie 2017" attached below. We recommend using Adobe Acrobat Reader for this. Please do not fill out the form by hand (with the exception of your signature) and make sure to include all necessary items. 

If some of the examinations in your graduation form include recognition of exams, please input the date of the recognition under "Prüfungsdatum" (date of examination). In the brackets "LV-Titel" (course title) and "LV-Leiter_in" (teacher), please simply input "recognized". 

Note that one of the courses completed in the BA Philosophy has to be in a living foreign language, such as English. 

Also note, that the last exam you completed has to be used for graduation.
