Information about the Winter Semester 2020/2021


Dear students, Dear applicants,

I am sure most of you – as well as our staff – wonder what the winter semester is going to be like. Unfortunately, neither the experts in Munich nor we know how the situation around Covid-19 is going to evolve within the next months. Therefore, all statements are uncertain to some degree.

  • The only certain information concerns the start date: in case of no major setbacks in the pandemic situation, all degree programs in Deggendorf will start in early October. Introduction and welcome events are planned to take place on 1st and 2nd of October. Classes start on 5th of October.
  • It is difficult to predict the type of lectures. I can only take a guess based on the current situation: We want to offer as many classroom lectures on campus as possible. First-semester students, practical laboratory courses as well as software courses are granted priority. This means that we will try to teach first-semester students mainly on campus. Depending on the distance regulations in October, more rooms than usual will be needed. In case the current distance regulation (of 1.5 meters) still applies in October, our first-semester students will occupy almost all of our lecture halls.
    We want to offer as many classroom lectures on campus as possible for students of a higher semester as well. Nonetheless, the amount of virtual teaching will continuously rise since we simply lack lecture halls to teach on campus and simultaneously abide by the hygiene requirements. It is our goal, however, to make some lectures available on campus for students of all semesters.
  • In degree programs with a high proportion of foreign students, we will, as far as possible, offer the first semester both in attendance on campus and partially virtual. We cannot assume that all of our international students will be able to travel to Germany in October.

I hope this information can be of some help regarding your planning for the upcoming semester. I want to emphasize once again that all those plans are subject to sudden change in case the pandemic situation in Germany changes significantly.

Prof. Dr. Peter Sperber
