Study, Teaching and Doctoral Studies in summer term 2020
On March 10, 2020, the Bavarian State Ministry for Science and Art ordered the immediate cessation of teaching in classroom form at Bavarian universities due to the spread of the corona virus SARS-CoV-2. As a result of this decision, teaching in classroom form at the Faculty of Physics has been completely suspended until further notice. This concerns all current courses, tutorials, block seminars and practical courses. Furthermore, all CIP pools will remain closed.
However, Faculty of Physics started the lecture period of the summer term 2020 punctually on April 20, 2020 with online-fomats. Further up-to-date information on teaching in summer term 2020 can be found on the special website on online-courses.
Oral examinations (e.g. bachelor final examination, docotral examination) are still possible under strict regulations and can also be held online under certain conditions. Participants returning from trips to risk areas or who have had contact with persons who have returned from a risk area can only take part in an examination remotely.
Further information on doctoral examinations can be found on the website of doctoral information.
Further information on examination matters can be found on the website of the physics examination office. We make every effort to keep the consequences of cancelled exams on the success of your studies as low as possible.
Due to the very dynamic development it is not yet possible to estimate the schedule for exams. We will inform you as soon as we know more details.
General Administrative Services
The administrative office of the Faculty of Physics reacts to the current events with special services and partly simplified administrative procedures. Detailed information on how to reach the office as well as the services travel, finances and personnel can be found on the website of the Faculty Administration.
