Transfer of the examination management to Marvin and
temporary shutdown of all campus management systems in May 2021

In May 2021, the examination management for the bachelor, master and teaching degree programs of all departments will move to Marvin. For this purpose, all examination data and grades must be transferred from the previous campus management system (QIS, POS) to Marvin.

During this data transfer, access to Marvin, QIS and POS must be temporarily disabled for all members of Philipps-Universität Marburg. This applies to all courses of study without exception, including the state examinations Pharmacy and Law as well as Medicine and Dentistry.

The e-learning platforms ILIAS and k-med are not affected by this shutdown.

Starting from April 30th, 2021 all campus management systems (Marvin, QIS and POS) will be switched off for approx. 4 weeks as part of the so-called „downtime“.
