COVID-19

University life during the 2020/21 winter semester


As the winter semester begins, Angewandte is looking to provide the best possible combination of safety and openness in everyday university life for all students, employees and visitors.
In this spirit, all measures are aimed at upholding in-person teaching as well as on-site research activities to the greatest possible extent while at the same time keeping the risk of infection at Angewandte as low as possible.
Special attention is being paid here to artistic and practical teaching, since doing these remotely would entail especially severe limitations.
 
With reference to the COVID-19 traffic light system developed by the Federal Ministry of Social Affairs, Health, Care, and Consumer Protection, four operating scenarios have been developed for Angewandte.

Starting at the beginning of the semester, the Rectorate provides ongoing information on the current operating scenario, which is published here on the website immediately.
 
In the general areas of the University-foyers, corridors, stairwells, lifts-it is obligatory to wear mouth and nose protection.
 
 
Social contacts must be reduced to a minimum. The entire University switches to distance learning. A reduced level of service is still provided on location. Access to University buildings is strictly regulated.
