News from Mar 31, 2021
The State of Berlin and Berlin’s universities and colleges have agreed to extend existing restrictions to university operations until April 24, 2021.
The 2021 summer semester will therefore begin as an online semester with the majority of events, including classes and lectures, taking place remotely. In view of the increasing number of Covid-19 infections, Berlin’s universities and colleges are putting plans in place for coronavirus testing in order to improve safety measures for in-person formats that are absolutely essential and cannot be carried out online. Each institution is responsible for developing its own testing scheme as a way of supporting existing hygiene measures to contain the ongoing pandemic.
