Coronavirus: Start of Lectures Delayed

In order to combat the continued spread of the coronavirus, the Ministry of Culture and Science has decided to delay the start of the summer semester lecture period.

The new start of the lecture period of the summer semester is April 20, 2020; the end of the lecture period of the summer semester 2020 has been set at July 17, 2020. This applies to all research universities, universities of applied sciences, and universities of fine arts in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Recent signs have been pointing to the possibility of a delay and the coronavirus task force has already taken this scenario into account. The Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences has been working and planning for some time now to ensure that an eventual delay to the lecture period is implemented smoothly. An immediate consequence of this decision is that all courses scheduled for before the lecture period (workshops or block seminars, for example) must be cancelled. More information on the possible effects of this decision on examinations, internships, semesters abroad etc. will follow as soon as possible.

Students and staff are kept up to date on further developments and measures on a daily and regular basis.

A special e-mail address has been set up for further questions: corona@hochschule-rhein-waal.de
