All Examination and Study Rules (Studien- und Prüfungsordnungen) are based on the Higher Education Act of Thuringia (Thüringer Hochschulgesetz), which outlines the rules and regulation for higher education in the whole state. The current regulations (dated May 2018 with additions from March 2021) can be found on the online-administration website of Thuringia (only German version available).
