Teaching and learning

How will the teaching continue in the summer semester (2020/21)?

Please refer to the guidelines.

Is compulsory attendance required for a course during the summer semester 2021? May I be excused from in-person attendance?

Please refer to the guidelines.

Do the same course requirements remain even if I am excused from in-person attendance?

Students who are excused from in-person attendance must nevertheless comply with all the course requirements and participate in exams. The obligation de présence/attendance requirement includes remote participation but being able to do only remote work does not excuse someone from taking exams or submitting the work that is required by their teacher.

Can I be granted an absence justifiée (ABS-J) for a course I cannot attend during the winter semester 2020?

An ABS-J is not granted automatically to students who do not attend a course during the winter semester 2020. An ABS-J can be granted in the case of the course lecturer falling ill and the course being interrupted. The students affected can be offered to enrol in alternative courses if possible.

I am a student / teacher participating in an in-person class. Are there any procedures and requirements?

Please bring a mask, scarf or bandana and cover your mouth and nose. If needed, masks are provided by the University at the reception desk. Disinfect hands before putting on the mask!

Masks, scarfs or bandanas are mandatory in all common spaces of the University (e.g. floors, printing areas, bathrooms, elevators, reception areas), all classrooms and lecture halls and where a minimum of two metres distance cannot be respected.

For in-person classes, the maximum room capacities must be respected. More information on the intranet (for staff only).

Details can be found in the regulations on hybrid teaching.
