On this page you can read about how the coronavirus pandemic affects your studies. Please check the  university’s website and intranet pages regularly (ideally once a day) for information about the situation on campus. Please also be sure to read the emails sent to your university email account about this issue from the university.

  • All important dates and deadlines for the summer semester are available in the semester schedule.

  • Your individual standard programme duration has been officially extended one semester, if you were enrolled in summer semester 2021 and not on leave of absence (Art. 99 (2) BayHschG). This applies retroactively to the winter semester 20/21 as well.
    Students who were enrolled at university and not on leave of absence in winter semester 20/21 and summer semester 2021, the standard programme duration (“Regelstudienzeit”) for their studies has been extended two semesters.
    For students who were enrolled at university and not on leave of absence since summer semester 2020, the standard programme duration (“Regelstudienzeit”) for their studies has been extended three semesters, accordingly.

  • For statistical purposes, however, the number of semesters (“Fachsemester”) must be increased, even if the study semesters in SoSe 2020, WiSe 21, and SoSe 2021 are not counted, as stipulated in Art. 99 (1) BayHSchG . This stipulation will be implemented by extending the deadlines and regular schedules in accord with the Terms of the Special Regulations to the APO (in German)

  • In some cases, incorrect information is shown for individual standard programme duration in Confirmations of Enrolment. If you find this to be the case, please contact your contact person in the Student Office to correct this mistake.

  • Withdrawing from an exam
    In the summer semester 2021, failure to attend a module examination is considered an effective withdrawal, even if the study and examination regulations (SPO) of a degree programme stipulate the opposite (as is the case for the Faculties of Business Administration, Architecture, and Civil Engineering, for example).

  • Requirement to sit examinations
    If you would be required to it an examination in SoSe 2021 (mandatory first time or resit exam), this deadline is officially extended until the end of WiSe 2021/22.  Every examination attempt in the summer semester 2021 is therefore of a voluntary nature. That means, you are not required to submit a request for an extension nor must you provide a medical certificate documenting your inability to sit an exam .
    IMPORTANT: This rule does not apply to scheduled assessments (project papers or final theses in bachelor’s or master’s programmes) nor to the completion of pre-requisite courses for master’s programmes (“Qualifikationsvoraussetzungen”) .
    Nor does this rule apply to individuals with (subject-specific) vocational qualifications who are in a probationary period of study: the probationary period of study still comprises 30 ECTS that must be completed in the first two semesters.

  • Failure of an examination
    If you receive a grade of 5.0 for a module in the summer semester 2021, this examination attempt will not be officially recognized.
    IMPORTANT: This rule does not apply to scheduled assessments (project papers or final theses in bachelor’s or master’s programmes) nor to the completion of pre-requisite courses for master’s programmes (“Qualifikationsvoraussetzungen”) .
  • Final theses (Bachelor’s/master’s theses):
    As the current hygiene regulations require keeping personal contact to a minimum, the Student Advisory Service will remain closed until further notice.
    For the current semester, summer semester 2021, and for the upcoming winter semester 2021/22, emailing your final thesis in pdf format from your university email account to the first examiner, the responsible Faculty office, and in cc to studienbueroatth-nuernbergPunktde , adequately meets the requirements of the deadline. Please note that depending on the regulations stipulated in the SPO under which you studied at least one printed copy that includes a signed, original Plagiarism Statement (“Eigenständigkeitserklärung”) in the bound format must be submitted. The bound copy of your thesis should be submitted to the responsible Faculty office. More information about submitting final theses is available on the intranet.

Students who are in the practical semester during the current semester can continue their work in practice. However, it is the host company's decision whether it can continue to supervise students. Students in the practical semester should therefore consult with their company.
