Information about the Summer Semester 2020

12.03.2020

The Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts has decided to postpone the start of lectures until 20 April 2020.

It is the goal of the university management and the teaching staff to arrange the summer semester 2020 in such a way that the examination performances of all courses can be taken regularly and that the restrictions for students and teaching staff are kept to a minimum.

The rectorate has therefore decided the following measures:

  • The courses are held within the guidelines set by the authorities.
  • Students and lecturers can find all current information on Campusnet/Internal/SoSe 2020.
  • The running of the university is restricted. Please plan visits by prior arrangement and note the information in the calendar of events.
