The legal framework for the Public Policy Program (MPP) is the Prüfungs- und Studienordnung (Examination and Study Rules), which contains rules and regulations on the admissions procedure, examination guidelines, graduation requirements, and the examinations committee.


For those students who joined the program in 2019, the 2011 regulations still apply. From the intake 2020- 2022 onwards, the examination and study rules of 2020 apply.
