Information on teaching in the winter semester 2021/22 - as of September 3, 2021

  • The semester dates for the faculty can be found here: https://www.frankfurt-university.de/en/about-us/faculty-3-business-and-law/repository-for-students-at-faculty-3/semester-schedule-of-faculty-3/. The schedule of classes and rooms will be published by the end of September.
  • Currently it can be assumed that teaching will be done in presence (=regular mode). Therefore, you have to assume that there is a need for presence on campus!
  • Documents on the course content are also provided online (Moodle). However, this does not mean that these documents must generally also be made available in the form of a recording or streaming. Therefore, you cannot expect face-to-face lectures to be recorded or streamed.
  • Masks are mandatory (medical mask of OP or FFP2 quality) in all buildings and especially in the lecture rooms.
  • 3G applies! The university is open to all persons in compliance with 3G regulations (vaccinated, recovered or tested). In general, there is an obligation to prove a current negative COVID test, which is not older than 48 hours. Exempt from the obligation to test are those who are vaccinated or recovered (obligation to provide proof!). In this context we refer again to the various vaccination possibilities also on our campuses in Frankfurt (next appointment on campus on 13.9.). Only professionally performed POC (citizen's test) or PCR tests with certificate are valid; self-tests are not valid. As it currently stands, the so-called "citizen tests" are only free of charge until Oct. 14, 2021.
  • A negative test for Covid 19 does not protect against a quarantine order without vaccination. If you have contracted Covid19 unvaccinated, regardless of where or on what occasion, or have had close contact with infected persons as defined by the RKI, this will inevitably result in a domestic seclusion order of 10 or 14days. During this time, you are not allowed to enter the campus. These periods of time, which are ordered again by the responsible health office for each new contact situation, are missing for you to cope with the content of your studies. This legal quarantine requirement does not apply to vaccinated and recovered individuals.
  • On campus, compliance with the 3G rule is monitored by a security service from the start of lectures.
  • QR codes of the Luca app will be attached to each room. For each lecture, students must log in and out independently at the start and end of the lecture. The use of the Luca app in the event rooms will be checked.
  • We recommend that you bring laptops or similar, as individual courses could also be broadcast online.
  • Regardless of the type of course, exams will be scheduled in a face-to-face setting.

Warm up for our first semester students

Dear first-year students, please visit our first-semester information page frequently to receive all relevant information and to-dos to get you started.

Access to examination records

Please contact the respective auditor if needed. Auditors will arrange a meeting with you. Note: The auditor must make the documents available to you digitally, simply explaining the evaluation to you is not sufficient, naturally.

The auditor is supposed to make the documents available to you digitally since, naturally, explaining the evaluation to you orally is not sufficient. 

Appeals against findings of attempted deception

Appeals against the determination of an attempted cheating must always be submitted in writing to the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, Referent Prüfungsrechtliche Widersprüche, Nibelungenplatz 1, 60318 Frankfurt am Main, in accordance with § 29 of the General Regulations for Examination Regulations for Bachelor's and Master's Degrees at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences - University of Applied Sciences (AB Bachelor/Master).
