Measures due to Coronavirus


Winter 2021/22 at the English Department

Most courses at the English Department will be taught in person. To make this as safe as possible for everyone, please follow the official guidelines. Additionally, we ask that you use the main staircase to enter (i.e. walk upstairs) and the back staircase to exit (i.e. walk downstairs). Further information, as well as an overview of the classrooms on the first floor, can be found in this document.

The online-version of the Course Catalogue always lists up-to-date information about classes and room assignments. If you click/tap on "Current Courses", you will be shown an overview of which classes are currently taking place (or are about to begin) in what room. For last minute or one-off changes, make sure to check the"News"-section on our website.

Please remember to wear a mask (FFP2 or equivalent) and to keep your 3G proof on you while you are inside the building. When entering a room, you need to check in (via QR-Code) and enter your contact information. Please try to avoid creating long queues by moving to your seat as quickly as possible.

3G rules apply throughout all university buildings. If you enter the English Department (including stairwells, locker areas, common room), you need to have your 3G proof with you. If you attend office hours, your 3G status needs to be checked and documented by the respective member of staff. We will ensure that all documentation is stored securely and destroyed after the relevant time period in accordance with the GDPR.

Completion Grant for International Students

The International Relations Office has limited funds available for international students who need financial support at the end of their studies. Grants are awarded to international students based on social criteria, previous academic performance and previous financing of studies. The grants are awarded once per semester by a commission. They amount to a monthly payment of approximately €300 - €400 and are generally given for the semester following the application. Students who are registered or are planning to register for final examinations in the summer semester 2022 in a Bachelor, Master or Staatsexamen course of studies can apply. Applications have to be submitted between January 1st and 31st, 2022. For more detailed information, please refer to the university's website.


Website: A-Z list
