The current situation is new and unfamiliar to all of us. It is throwing up a lot of questions, some of which we can already answer, while we are ourselves still seeking solutions for the others. It is very important to us to find pragmatic and constructive solutions in order to offer the best possible protection for the health of the members of our university, whilst at the same time making it possible for you to have a programme of studies which is as “normal” as possible in spite of the current conditions. Nonetheless we cannot exclude the possibility that new regulations and paths which we have chosen will lead to inconvenience and additional work for you. We are trying to minimise both of these for you as far as possible.

The following link will lead you to some questions and answers which have reached us in the past few days.

We will be updating the list continually. Information via the following link is given in both German and English. Please check this link frequently.

We will provide you with updated information about the situation for arrival and testing procedures and more on this webpage after January 10th 2022.
