    Corona Information for Incoming Students

    Here we offer you the most frequently asked questions with corresponding answers for international students
    being based on the FAQs answered by the International Office.

     

    Can I begin or continue my exchange program at a later date?           Yes. If you would like to postpone your exchange programme, you must confirm with your home university if that is possible.
    For individual questions concerning your exchange program, please contact the Erasmus-Office under erasmus@jura.uni-wuerzburg.de or the International Students Office:
    international@uni-wuerzburg.de
         
    What is the so called "Hybrid Semester" which is planned for the winter term 2020/21?  

    Our lecturers are currently preparing the courses of the "hybrid semester": They will offer numerous digital teaching and learning opportunities.
    Smaller courses - such as laboratory courses or practical tutorials, smaller seminars or excursions - are planned as in-class lectures.
    This will enable direct contact with lecturers and teachers, with clarification of your questions, discussions about the online offers and questions that go far beyond that.

    The combination of the wide range of digital teaching and learning formats with attendance classes will allow us to offer our students a complete range of courses in all subjects, while at the same time pursuing the necessary measures to protect the health of students and teachers.

    If you cannot travel to Germany, please talk to your lecturers about individual solutions (also regarding digital exams).
         
    Can I participate in the online-classes without enrolling at the University of Würzburg?   No. Only enrolled students can participate in online-classes offered by the University of Würzburg.
         
    I am financing my studies with a part-time job.
