Studying on site

Welcome back!

We are planning to hold courses mainly on site to enable the personal exchange between you, your fellow students and your teachers. Courses in a digital or mixed format are highlighted in u:find.

Due to COVID-19, there might be changes at short notice (e.g. single classes in a digital format). Regularly obtain information on u:find and check your e-mails.

Check list: Before the beginning of the semester

  • Check the format of the course/exam (on site, digital or hybrid) on u:find. Plan your semester.
  • Register for all courses/exams on u:space. Following registration, you can access the learning materials on Moodle.

Recommendations for working and studying safely together:

  • Protect yourself from a severe course of the infection through a vaccination, especially by getting the booster vaccination.
  • Take care of yourself and your mental health. Do not hesitate to get help from the Psychological Counselling Services. This service is anonymous, low-threshold and free of charge.
