Information on dealing with the novel corona virus

Written by

Following federal and state consultations and the extension of the lockdown until February 14, 2021, the rectorate decided on January 20, 2021 to suspend classroom teaching until the end of the winter semester’s lecture period – excluding the already known exceptions. This means that laboratory practicals, field exercises and excavations as well as music and sports practicals can continue to be carried out if strict hygiene concepts are applied, in particular FFP2 masks are worn.

Doctoral defences
  • the Rectorate of MLU recommends doctoral defences in digital form
  • the consent of all parties involved is required
  • the final decision on the performance in digital form is made by the Dean or the doctoral committee in accordance with the relevant doctoral regulations
  • If, exceptionally, an oral doctoral examination is to be held in person, the relevant hygiene guidelines of the state of Saxony-Anhalt and the university are to be applied
