UA Ruhr

In line with the University Alliance Ruhr (UA Ruhr), students of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum have the right to participate in examinations of the TU Dortmund and the Universität Duisburg-Essen. With the framework, we want to motivate students to attend modules that sharpen and improve their own profile and skills.
The crediting of different modules is particularly useful for the students, because of the extensive elective areas in the Master's program. The completion of compulsory modules is excluded from examinations within the framework of the UA Ruhr.
In general, the relevant forms of the respective home faculty have to be used for the registration, application and the admission to examinations. Students of the RUB can find the respective forms here.

Please follow the instructions given there. Before participating in a module, you have to coordinate the crediting with our examination office.
