Course auditing

The opportunity to audit serves as general further training without any formal qualification being sought.

If there are still places available in a degree program, people who wish to continue their education within individual courses can apply for admission as guest auditors. Admission as a guest auditor requires the consent of the Dean of the respective department in coordination with the university lecturer responsible for the respective course. The legal basis for a guest auditorship at Mainz University of Applied Sciences is Section 20 of the Regulations for the Registration of Students at Mainz University of Applied Sciences (Registration Regulations) of 4 July 2014.

Admission is for one semester. The guest auditor receives a guest auditor's permit on the basis of the admission. A formal qualification such as the Abitur is not required for admission as a guest auditor. Guest auditors of Mainz University of Applied Sciences are not entitled to acquire certificates of achievement or take part in examinations.
