Dear Students

The Corona crisis is also changing working and studying at the Institute of Physics enormously. We are trying to keep the impact on you as low as possible and continue to make it possible for you to study successfully. The summer semester will begin on April 6, 2021, but initially only with digital formats. The lecturers will inform you via Moodle or HIS how this will be implemented for the individual courses. Further information, which is regularly updated to reflect the current situation, can be found on the central pages of the university and the individual departments/institutes. If you have any questions regarding your studies, please contact the respective study advisors.
