State Exam Programs

The term “state exam” broadly describes examinations given by a state examination board to determine a student's level of proficiency and qualification in a specific field. The exam represents the final phase of a course of study or training program assessed by a state examination board. Program and examination content are governed by law. In contrast, diploma, magister, bachelor's or master's examinations are administered by the university awarding the academic title. The rationale behind these special government controls of the state exam is public interest in ensuring the quality of specific forms of education and training. State Exam Programs offered by TUM
