Beginning of the teaching period postponed till 4 May 2020

We are getting ready to start our online classes. Due to delays in the provision and set up of online learning and teaching tools at the UdK, the beginning of the teaching period has been postponed till 4 May. We have taken measures to have the online tools in place by then. A shorter teaching period will not mean less time for study and virtual classroom sessions.


Focus Phase Courses postponed until Winter Semester 2020/21 | 19 October - 20 February

Since not all our courses can be held online, there will also be Focus Phase courses offered during the Winter Semester 2010/21. Syllabi will be published alongside regular Winter Semester syllabi at the beginning of the semester.
