Planned Modifications for International Applicants

Currently Covid-19 is shaping the context of our teaching, as we are hosting all lectures online. We do not yet know how the situation will be in the upcoming winter semester, starting in October 2020.. We are preparing for every circumstance so please be assured that you can start your studies on a regular basis and that all lectures will be held to a high standard - whether in presence or online.

We're assuming that the lecture period for all study courses will start at the beginning of October. The final decision will be announced in the next couple of weeks.

However, travel and visa restrictions due to the current COVID-19 virus create many challenges for you as a potential international applicant.
