FAQs on the 2020/2021 winter semester in times of COVID-19


What will this new semester look like?Hide

Despite of the measures to prevent the further spreading of COVID-19, we try to offer as many seminars as (safely) possible on-site. In our opinion, particularly first-year-students profit from getting to know the university atmosphere in person including campus life, interesting debates in their seminars and of course socialising in our canteen or spending time in the library. That is why we decided to structure our courses the following way: some seminars will be held weekly on-site, others in a bi- or tri-weekly change between online and on-site teaching and some courses are exclusively online. We hope that this plan enables us to offer you attractive studies and to get in touch with you personally in spite of all the restrictions. However, we have to remain cautious and to find other solutions if the situation concerning COVID-19 changes. All important information will be updated on our website and announced via our KuGeA mailing list.

When and where do I register for my courses?Hide

Unfortunately, the restrictions to cope with COVID-19 have required us to limit the flexibility of your studies: seminars will be taking place at the same time and you will have to choose which one you'd like to take. Furthermore, it is now necessary that you register for your courses on the platform cmlife as room capacities are quite limited. If a seminar has already been fully booked when you want to enroll, you are automatically placed on a waiting list. Should other students decide to withdraw from their previously booked seminar spot, these open spaces will be filled with students from the waiting list. Therefore please deregister from your course until 07.11.20 if you decide to not take part in it, giving your fellow students the chance to move up. We rely on your cooperation and of course also try to cater for your needs in this situation.

All information concerning the content of your seminars is going to be released on e-learning. We work hard to make sure that you will have access to seminar plans and other details in the following weeks, to make it easier for you to structure your curriculum (and to choose the courses you want to register for). Please use this opportunity prior to the beginning of the new semster.
