IMPORTANT NEWS - Registration for Examinations and Lectures in PORTA

New General Examination Regulations have entered into force recently!

These regulations prescribe that all students have to register for lectures  AS WELL AS for examinations in PORTA-System at Trier University.

Please note that these regulations are also applicable for lectures which are offered as video conferences from Berlin and Bamberg University! In these cases you have to enroll both in PORTA for lecture and examination and to register (mostly per mail) for the course and the exam at the external university.
ERASMUS-Students or other international student who cannot register to PORTA have to sign in in our secretary's office for all examinations! In case of video conferences, please contact the external university as well as our chair!

Please consider these rules carefully, as otherwise you might cause problems with the approval of your achieved grades.

You will find registration periods for the lectures right below this note as well as on the PORTA start page. In case you fail to register in PORTA for a lecture (although you have carefully observed the rules), please contact us per mail to and tell us your exact course of studies including your current examination regulations (PO) as well as the exact module name for which you wish the lecture to be credited!

Registration periods for the examinations will be provided by the Hochschulprüfungsamt (examination office).
