    Our lecturers are currently preparing the courses of the "hybrid semester": They will offer numerous digital teaching and learning opportunities. Smaller courses - such as laboratory courses or practical tutorials, smaller seminars or excursions - are planned as in-class lectures. This will enable direct contact with lecturers and teachers, with clarification of your questions, discussions about the online offers and questions that go far beyond that.

    The combination of the wide range of digital teaching and learning formats with attendance classes will allow us to offer our students a complete range of courses in all subjects, while at the same time pursuing the necessary measures to protect the health of students and teachers.

    If you cannot travel to Germany, please talk to your lecturers about individual solutions (also regarding digital exams).
