We are as ambitious as you are which is why we are putting in place innovative measures to ensure you can start your studies with us in winter semester 2021. Therefore, all students have the possibility to start their studies online and continue on-campus as soon as possible.*
In addition, we strictly follow a high standard of hygiene and safety measures on all our campuses. Because: We're focusing on your safety, so you can focus on your studies!
* Important note: The implementation of face-to-face lectures takes place in accordance with and subject to the legal requirements. There is no guarantee that classroom teaching will be possible throughout the semester (in this case, teaching will be digital).
If for any reason Government guidance changes in the next few months which means we are unable to open our campuses, don’t worry, we've got that covered too.
Our guarantee gives you the following reassurances:
You can start your studies online now: it’s completely risk-free.

All classes will be delivered in a mix of face-to-face, hybrid and online formats.
For face-to-face lectures, we will either have rotating groups on campus to observe the distancing rules or we will teach in such a way that parts of the students are on campus while the others are involved live via MS Teams ("hybrid teaching").
This results in the fact that selected classes in your schedule will be taught 100% online via MS Teams for the entire semester.
There are no blocking periods in the case you are stuck abroad or cannot initially come to campus for other reasons. Whenever you are able to come to campus during the semester, you can join classes on campus – provided distancing rules are observed. You can, for example, study for the first 3 weeks online, then join face-to-face or hybrid classes or continue to study online even if you could theoretically access the campus. The choice is entirely yours.
In the case of another lockdown, all classes will be shifted to fully online (MS Teams) within 24 hours. But in the case of relaxation, the rate of face-to-face or hybrid classes will be increased in accordance with the distancing rules.
