Inquiry of the student council: Technical equipment for digital teaching

Dear all,

as you have probably already noticed, the next semester will take place online (see news in StudIP). Of course, this requires access to the internet and a device that you can work with. However, we can imagine that some of you have used the technology provided by the university so far. Since we cannot estimate when and in what form the libraries will open again, we cannot guarantee access to the internet and devices.

We want to prevent you from not being able to participate in this semester due to a lack of technical equipment.
If you feel that you will have problems with the online semester due to a lack of technical equipment, please contact us as soon as possible ( ).
In cooperation with the dean's office we would like to try to find solutions for your problems before the semester starts.

If you know of others who are affected by this problem, please let us know as well. Please also forward this message to others who are not in the semester groups.

Love and stay healthy

Your chemistry student´s council
All aspects of chemistry can be explored by students in the Master course in chemistry in Göttingen. The course is strongly research-oriented and offers a perfect foundation for a PhD. A study course with a largely individual focus can be put together from the wide portfolio of teaching courses. They reach from a wider overview of chemistry to a specific emphasis e.g. in organic chemistry or methodological problems.
The Master course in chemistry is subject to an entrance limitation. That means that certain specific requirements must be met to be admitted to the study course. Therefore, an application process takes place before enrolment. The number of students in the course is not limited. The study course can be started each year in the winter or summer semester. The regular period of study is 4 semesters.
