Board of Examiners BA International Studies

The Board of Examiners of your department is responsible for the effective organisation of the tests and examinations. In the larger departments, in particular, the Board itself does not carry out these activities, but designates the teaching staff as examiners.

According to the statutory regulations, only lecturers are eligible for membership of a Board of Examiners.  If you have any questions or problems, you can approach the Departmental Teaching Committee, or the student member of the Faculty Board (Assessor).
