There will be no alternative date for the exams. The next examination dates will take place in June/July, depending on the faculty. If problems arise as a result of this, for example, due to a deadline regulation that cannot be observed, please contact your competent examination office.
Inspections have also been cancelled until further notice. These will only take place again after the start of courses with on-site attendance. You can obtain the necessary information from your faculty.
If, due to the cancellation of the written exams, you cannot prove to the BAFöG office that you have sufficient credit points, the deadline will be postponed by one semester.
The examination offices have limited their opening hours considerably, but can be contacted by email. We would therefore ask you, in such a case, to contact your respective examination office directly and ask them how to submit your final thesis.
Colloquiums will be held with the agreement of all parties involved. Moreover, video colloquiums are also permitted.
The start of courses with on-site attendance has been postponed to 20 April 2020. At the beginning of April at the latest, the Ministry and the universities will reassess the situation and decide on any possible follow-up measures. Starting at the end of March, however, the faculties will offer online courses allowing students to access the materials from home.
As of 30 March, the faculties will offer online courses. This means that students can access lectures or materials from home and work on the teaching content from home.
The semester will not be extended. The end of the semester will therefore not be postponed.

Currently, the plan is to resume courses with on-site attendance as from 20 April. In cooperation with the Ministry, there will be a reassessment at the beginning of April as to whether the measures need to be extended or prolonged in order to contain the virus.
The Centre for University Didactics & Quality Development in Studies and Teaching (ZHQ, Zentrum für Hochschuldidaktik & Qualitätsentwicklung in Studium und Lehre) deals with e-learning as well as online written exams. Unfortunately, no appropriate solutions are available at this time. It is necessary to clarify not only technical and content-related questions, but also legal ones.
University management and the crisis management team oF FH Aachen are monitoring the situation, constantly re-evaluating it. With regard to measures taken, they follow the recommendations of the state government. It is not yet foreseeable how exactly the situation will develop and what consequences will have to be drawn.
