Update Winter Semester 20/21 & Outlook Summer Semester 2021

Winter Semester 20/21

  • Exams and other types of performance assessment will be held online.

  • The only exceptions are certain examinations that cannot be held online due to their design and/or curricular importance. Your lecturers will keep you updated.


Please note the following safety measures:
  • You have to wear an FFP2 mask without a valve (or a mask of even higher quality) at all times during your stay in the buildings and during your exam. You have to bring your own mask. 
  • The seats for exams are marked with yellow marks (safety distance of 2 meters).  
  • If you test positive for COVID-19 (PCR test result only) within 10 days after your exam, please report your test result using this online form
  • All courses of the Winter University program will be held in distance mode. 


Summer Semester 2021

  • The electronic course catalogue (eVVZ) will go online on January 25th and lecturers will make adjustments until the end of January.   

  • Teaching and exams will remain in distance mode until the end of March (Easter) in any case. If there are certain exceptions (exams on campus), your lecturers will inform you.  

  • The exams of the large-scale exam week in March will be held online. The exam schedule will be online from February 8th. 

  • We will keep you updated regarding the regulations for the time after Easter. We hope that we can enable on-site teaching and learning as soon as possible in the summer semester and that you can continue your corses on-campus (in hybrid or rotation mode).
