Date: 29.10.2020 | Teaching in winter semester 2020/21
The universities are not affected by the decision of the Federal and State Governments to combat the coronavirus pandemic from October 28, 2020. The universities stay open.
The planned face-to-face lectures will take place as announced without implementing any changes to the course modalities.
The winter semester 2020/21 at the Faculty
According to the decision of the Bavarian state government from the 28th of July 2020, events can be carried out in presence again, in compliance with safety measures. The winter semester 2020/21 at the University of Würzburg will take place as a so-called "hybrid semester". Hybrid teaching and learning formats mean that you will deal with a combination of a wide range of digital teaching and some attendance classes. Most courses will be offered as online courses. Some smaller courses are planned as in-class lectures and will be held in presence (safety measures: distance of 1,5 meters between the course participants, attendance sheets). The combination of online and attendance classes will allow us to offer you the complete range of courses that we teach in both fields management and economics, while at the same time pursuing the necessary measures to protect the health of students and teachers.
Restrictions will still apply to the opening modalities of all university buildings, the use of library rooms / computer pools and on-site consultation hours.
All regulations listed here are based on the currently valid legal situation in Bavaria. Thus, changes must be taken into account according to the changing circumstances of the pandemic, changes in government alert levels and outbreaks and - if necessary - also at short notice.
Wearing a face-covering is compulsory on campus in all buildings of the university. Please maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m to a neighbouring seat in lecture rooms / study spaces. After taking up your seat in a lecture room/study room, the face-covering can be removed.

Contact Tracing | QR Code | UniNow App
For the purpose of organizing attendance examinations and face-to-face teaching, the university is obliged to record contact details of all students present in lecture rooms in order to trace and interrupt chains of infection transmission. Students are encouraged to use the UniNow app (download at https://uninow.de/) in order to register to examinations and each time before attending a lecture in university rooms. The app makes it possible for us to provide information enabling tracing chains of infection trasmission in a faster and less complicated way, and to considerably reduce the amount of paper (QR code instead of a printed form).
Students who have installed the UniNow app on their smartphones must scan the QR code and fill in their data. In this way they will get registered for the relevant examination or lecture/course. You can easily test the process of registration by means of the QR code (https://go.uniwue.de/corona-formulare). Here you will find also further information on the application as well as a "test room" created especially for this purpose. The possible modalities of check-in/out are explained here: https://checkin.uninow.de/.
Please note that we will still have to check your identity card before each attandance examination, no matter if you use the app or not.
The University of Würzburg has defined security concepts for the implementation of internships and examinations in attendance. These specify safety measures regarding the organisation examinations. A face-covering during the examination as well as a signing a statement of not having COVID-19 symptoms are obligatory before entering an examination room.
