Bachelor

What is the planned schedule for the summer semester at Faculty 6?

What is the planned schedule for the summer semester at Faculty 6?

The courses of the winter semester will start on 29 March 2021, with  lectures ending on 9 July 2021 for all students.
This is followed by the written examination period in July. According to the current requirements of the Ministry, the semester will be continued as an online semester for the time being. At present, it is not known or foreseeable when, or whether, an attendance phase will take place in the current semester. Should there be a new resolution, we will inform you immediately.

Will the Practical Project 1 be cancelled due to the changed examination phase of the 6th semester? Or how can the PP1 still be included in the extended 6th semester?

Will the Practical Project 1 be cancelled due to the changed examination phase of the 6th semester? Or how can the PP1 still be included in the extended 6th semester?

PP1 has not been cancelled. In the current situation, it makes sense to do without the very ambitious shortening of the 6th semester. If someone is within the standard period of study, i.e. would have had the last written examinations in June, the PP1 can still be completed without any problems in the lecture-free period without any loss of time in the 7th semester with PP2 and BA. This provision therefore puts no one at a disadvantage.
