The following references explain our measures and should answer some often-raised questions. All temporary adjustments are due to the Corona virus outbreak and will be reverted, once the situation calms.

How can I hand in my master thesis?

Starting March 18, 2020 your MIEPP master thesis can be handed in electronically until further notice. In order to hand in your master thesis, send an e-mail from your students account to

The thesis has to be in PDF format. Furthermore, the statutory declaration has to still be signed personally. Thus, you can either scan or photograph (has to be readable) the signed statutory declaration and add it to the e-mail. The statutory declaration and the thesis have to be attached to the same e-mail.

The hand-in date is the date the e-mail is received. Once you sent the email, the hand-in is complete. There is no way you can change your thesis anymore (i.e. if you find a mistake after handing it in, you cannot send a new version on the same day).

The registrar’s office will not ask for further printed versions.

Hand in your master thesis via post. The post stamp counts as the hand in date. Please always check the requirements yourself (i.e. number of copies, binding, statutory declaration etc.)

I deregistered my exam after March 12, 2020. Is it possible to still participate in the retake exam?

Yes. Taking advantage of the short-term opportunity to deregister exams will not lead to any disadvantages.

I am now missing credits to start my master thesis

No Office Hour Thursday, R introduction course

Von: FB 03 - Studienbüro

Dear MIEPP Students,


I hope your break is going well and in no way do I want to remind you of the semester starting again in the far away, very distant future. Yet I do have some announcements to make:



-          No office hour Thursday

-          R Course

-          KFW job


First things first, not only you are being lazy during your break (I hope), I will take a few days off as well which leads to the office hours on Thursday September 26 being cancelled.


Before the start of next semester, our department will offer an R introduction course. This is an extremely good opportunity to get a first grip on R and the application is first come first serve so do  not wait too long to make up your mind. I have attached the information to this email.


Finally, the KFW is looking for students to bolster their Central Africa Team. The link is: Werkstudent (m/w/d) Finanzielle Zusammenarbeit im Länderteam Zentralafrika

If you have any more questions, this job was brought to my attention by a fellow student of yours (as per usual). She would love to give you more information if needed under lealeiwen(at)


In the spirit of summer (or maybe early fall) break, I will keep this newsletter short and end it here. Enjoy your time and do not think too much about the thing that is starting again in October.
