Corona: FAQ for Faculty 2

We're happy to announce that in the winter semester 2021/22, as many courses as possible will take place face-to-face on campus. For more information, please read this letter from our Dean of Students, Prof. Dr. Thordis Michalke.

Please get vaccinated, if possible. All the best and stay healthy!

To access our campus and our buildings, you must be able to provide written proof that you have recovered from Covid-19 OR have been fully vaccinated OR have currently been tested (within the last 48 hours). You can get a free Corona test in the ASB test centre in building 1 (ground floor).

Depending on the current incidence value in Frankfurt, different rules apply on our campus and in our buildings. Always check the Corona info page of our university. The current incidence values for Frankfurt are published on the website of the Hessian Ministry for Social Affairs and Integration.

Contact and Accessibility

Our laboratories will remain open for lab staff, including student employees and tutors. Access is limited to these individuals. The laboratory management will decide whether individual students working on research projects may use the respective laboratory. 

All safety regulations must be observed. An adequate distance between individuals must be maintained. Surfaces, especially door handles and keyboards, must be disinfected regularly. Everyone should wash their hands more often and intensively than usual. Those who feel symptoms of illness, please stay at home to minimize the risk of infecting other people.

Oral and written final examinations

In the winter semester 2020/21, the changed withdrawal period from exams is no longer valid: You must not stay away from registered exams without giving a reason. If you were unable to take your exam due to illness, you must submit a medical certificate. This certificate must be sent to the examination office (sorry, this page is only available in German) by e-mail no later than the 3rd day after the examination.

If you would like to register a final thesis (Bachelor's or Master's thesis), please contact our Examination Offices (German only).

As usual, you can send final papers, project work and similar written work as well as other documents to us by post. Please note that the postmark determines whether you have met the deadline. In addition, the digital submission of written works is now also accepted. You can upload your paper via Moodle in the course Prüfungsamt Fachbereich 2.
The registration key is: Verf@hren
Please note that compliance with the submission deadline also applies to digital submissions.

Extensions are possible, but only upon request. Such requests must be made by e-mail directly to our Examination Office (German only).

Please send any applications to our Examination Offices to the chairmen of the boards (German only) via e-mail. Alternatively, applications can also be sent by post.

Oral examinations and components of examinations consisting of an oral part (presentations etc.) can be conducted online. Further details are regulated by the examination boards.

The following video conferencing systems in particular are available for holding courses and examinations:

  • Zoom
  • Adobe Connect
  • DFN-Conf (Pexip)

The video conferencing system used for the course will also be used for the online exam. In the case of an online examination, the examiners will inform the students at least two weeks before the examination date which video conferencing system will be used and, if applicable, which additional requirements must be met.

In the summer semester 2021, there will be a three weeks-examination period from July 17, 2021 to August 7, 2021.
You will always find up-to-date information on the exams in your Moodle courses.
