CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

Update 07 May 2020 | COVID-19



Covid-19 Update 07 May 2020

Due to the corona situation, the Berlin Senate has decided that all colleges and universities in Berlin are closed to the public and to classroom teaching.

As a consequence, we have successfully switched to blended teaching for the 2020 summer semester. This means that our students can continue to earn credits.

 

What does this change mean in various areas?

Classes and Examinations

All (re-)examinations with compulsory attendance are cancelled. We will inform our students about the date and nature of the new examination four weeks before it takes place.

Apart from a few exceptions, the courses take place using digital teaching and learning methods via Microsoft Teams (with an interface to our campus management system).

Services

Our services will continue to be available! We will respond to any questions as soon as possible by e-mail. We aim to support you with all your concerns, including personal questions and issues, as well as we possibly can. We are more than happy to call you back should you want us to do so.

Events

All events at the university have been cancelled until further notice. This was an order of the Berlin Senate. Admin sessions and Open House events are held online.

Media Technology

The media technology loan is again possible on site with an appointment for collection - generally as an external loan - in compliance with the hygiene regulations.

Library

The university libraries of the SRH University of Applied Sciences can also be used again for borrowing and returns on site, provided that the hygiene regulations are observed. Before the visit it is necessary to make an appointment online.

>> Please find more information about the online resources in this document.

If you already have a valid library card for Berlin's public libraries, you can also use the online services of the VÖBB. Otherwise you have the possibility to get a free library card online. This library card is valid for three months. It gives you access to all digital services of the public libraries.

 

Please understand that we have taken these measures in the best interests of you and our employees. Our first priority is to ensure that our students remain healthy and can successfully complete their studies in the summer semester.

We will continue to keep you updated about the situation.
