About the Examination Board for the Master of Education Programmes
The examination board for the master of education programmes was implemented as a cross-sectional examination board in charge of the organization of examinations in the master of education programmes as well as tasks related to this function. The examination board is comprised of the Erfurt School of Education Director of Studies (chairperson) as well as eight additional members. The chairperson as well as the faculties’ deans of studies are members ex-officio. A dean can select another university lecturer to represent the faculty’s dean of studies permanently in his/her place. The Senate chooses one additional member among the group of university lecturers, one additional member from the group of research associates and two members form the students of the master of education study courses *. Members usually serve on the examination board for three years. Students usually serve a term of one year. Reelection is admissible.
*Director of Studies, academic personnel and students are elected if they are members of the ESE.
