The university management has also determined a considerable impairment of university operations for the winter semester (AM I, 24/2020, p. 1072). Attendance teaching is only possible in a few cases. This means that the APO amendment (§22a) still applies, according to which examinations that deviate from the examination regulations require approval. But, based on the experience gained in the summer semester, the application procedure has been significantly simplified. So, examiners who for an examination only want to switch from attendance to digital no longer need to submit an application, as this has already been approved in advance by the dean of studies of the Faculty of Humanities. This means that lecturers only have to apply in cases where an examination is to be taken in a form that deviates from the examination and study regulations. Due to the still critical situation, attendance examinations are only approved in exceptional cases.
Since this semester, the university has been using the software "Darf ich rein? ("May I come in?"), which allows for easy and fast contact data entry using QR codes. As a participant in a seminar in presence, look out for such a QR code in front of or in the room and check in and out using it. You can find more information about this on the page Contact Detail Collection. The codes can also be found on the three break rooms (0.609, 1.601 and 1.701), which the Faculty of Humanities makes available to students in the KWZ ("Kulturwissenschaftliches Zentrum") from November 2 onwards (Mon - Fri, open 10am - 6pm).
Update 06.01.21: The university management extended the period of validity of stage 3 ("red", high incidence of infection) of its COVID-19 3-level system until further notice until 24 January 2021. Therefore, no attendance programmes (teaching/examinations) may currently take place at the Faculty of Humanities.
Update 18.01.2021: Due to the lockdown and the resulting restricted opening hours of the libraries, students of the Faculty of Humanities are granted an extension of 45 days for the processing of written examinations (assignments, essays, portfolios, etc.), provided that the use of libraries is necessary for the completion of the work. Thus, for example, the submission date of 31.03. is postponed to 15.05.21.
The processing time for theses that were already registered at the start of lockdown has also been extended by 45 days. If students register for a thesis during the current lockdown, the processing time will be extended proportionally.
Students can check the extensions granted by accessing their exam registrations in Flexnow.
Update v. 26.03.2021: The university management has extended the period of validity of stage 3 ("red", high incidence of infection) of its COVID-19 3-level system until 1 May 2021. Therefore, no attendance programmes (teaching/examinations) may continue to take place at the Faculty of Humanities.
