Study: Current regulations in times of coronavirus

University of Bayreuth 2021 summer semester teaching: Mix of online & in-person teaching


For teaching in the 2021 summer semester, the University of Bayreuth will offer online courses and face-to-face courses as needed. We will ensure that there is a comprehensive and high-quality range of courses in all degree programmes that will enable students to successfully begin and continue their studies in the 2021 summer semester.

Not all courses can be implemented in an online format, or make sense as such didactically. We will therefore offer laboratory practicals, practical tutorials, and seminars in-person as necessary for particular courses of study, all the while adhering strictly to applicable hygiene standards - as far as the legal situation and infection control regulations allow. Those students who study in person, i.e. take part in permissible face-to-face courses such as laboratory practicals, excursions, sports, and theatre practical courses, are given the opportunity to test themselves twice weekly by means of a coronavirus self-test.

With this approach, the University of Bayreuth intends to react flexibly to the pandemic to ensure a high degree of feasibility and progress in all study programmes.
Individual faculties will provide comprehensive information on the exact regulations applying to individual study programmes soon.

Extension of the COVID-related amendments to the Bavarian Higher Education Act (BayHSchG)

Science Minister Bernd Sibler has announced, in his press announcement on 24.03.2021, that the COVID-related amendments to the Bavarian Higher Education Act (BayHSchG) are to be extended to the 2020/2021 winter semester and 2021 summer semester: “Practically, that will mean that our students’ semester of study and thus also the schedules and deadlines based on their standard period of study will be automatically extended/postponed by one semester. This will give students more time to take examinations. Moreover, the provisions governing the individual standard period of study will also be extended to the 2020/2021 winter semester and 2021 summer semester. This will automatically result in a correspondingly extended maximum period of BAföG benefits.“ More information will be available soon on the websites of the respective examinations offices.

Digital teaching until the end of the lockdown in Germany (for the time being) 
Back to digital teaching remains valid: until the end of the current lockdown for the time being. As was the case last semester, exceptions will be made for laboratory work, internships, examinations, practical (including sports) training, and artistic training phases. These may continue to be held in-person under the conditions with which you are already familiar.

  • University Library: Opening of the Central Library and all sub-libraries. Please check the website www.ub.uni-bayreuth.de for current regulations and services.
  • Compulsory wearing of face masks still applies: Everywhere on the premises of the University of Bayreuth (including its branch offices) it is compulsory for everyone to wear a simple face mask at all times, unless you are in an office alone.
  • Laboratories will remain open for research and also for practical laboratory courses.
  • Study rooms and CIP pools must be closed by 14 January.
  • In-person examinations and courses: Planned written and oral examinations as well as sports, music, and practical artistic in-person examinations will continue to be permitted in compliance with the strict hygiene and social distancing regulations. Practical in-person music courses will also be allowed.
  • Deadlines: With regard to deadlines for module examinations, term papers, and final theses, there is no central regulation or general cancellation of deadlines. Please contact the individual departments for more information.
  • Software: Students with special software needs (e.g. MAXQDA), which can only be accessed free of charge via the CIP pools, should inform their supervising lecturers of this need. You will then be assigned a fixed workstation in a special CIP pool.
  • The Frischraum and the canteens (cafeteria and NW III) are opened with the current range of food - only take away! 

In particular, the following provisions apply
