We are closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) pandemic. As the situation continues to change, our top priority remains the health, safety, and well-being of our 5000+ students and staff members, on and off campus.

1. Teaching and Learning at TH Lübeck during the Corona Crisis
- Library (as of January 8th, 2021)
- Digital Teaching and Examinations (as of January 8th, 2021)
In the Winter Semester of 2020/2021, digital courses will have priority. With very few exceptions, exams must also be held digitally. Examiners can obtain information about low-threshold options from the Center for Digital Teaching ("Zentrum für digitale Lehre"). Please inform yourself in the Lernraumkurs " Zentrum Digitale Lehre" and in open, digital office hours every Monday at 09:00 and Wednesday at 13:00.
Generally, the following framework applies to digital teaching:
If courses are held online, "live" elements may only be recorded if all participants agree. This should be checked at the beginning of a lecture (that involves discussion). There is no such thing as a "right" to record. However, it is recommended to do so. Lecturers can decide if they make such recordings generally available in the Lernraum (not elsewhere) or only in exceptional cases, for example if a student falls ill.
In general, online courses can not be compulsory for students. However, with practical courses/ internships and seminars the situation is different. If the internship or seminar takes place digitally, but "live" at the time scheduled in the timetable, the participants are obliged to attend (digitally). Appropriate consideration must be allowed for technical (connection) problems and Corona-related difficulties.
If, for example, a laboratory practical course can only be partially offered digitally in this semester, the department or the head of the course may find a way to recognize the digital elements that have already been completed when the practical parts are made up at a later date, and thus to recognize the overall performance as a single examination performance. This should be discussed with the lecturers.
Theses may be submitted in digital form. The printed form must then be submitted at a later date. The colloquium can only take place after the written version has been submitted.
The "Corona Statutes" form the framework for teaching and exams in the summer semester of 2020. The Vice-President for Studies and Teaching will answer general questions on this subject; specific questions should be addressed to the respective Chair of the Examination Committee of your department.
Information on the subject of examinations can be found in a separate section on this page.
Help for Lecturers
The ZDL (Center for Digital Teaching ) advises and supports lecturers/ teachers and members of all departments with the implementation of digitally supported forms of teaching/learning from a technical and didactic point of view in the context of face-to-face and online studies (VFH). The offers include teaching impulses, training courses and workshops as well as individual (media-) didactical consulting and coaching for lecturers as well as support in media and video production.
Please inform yourself in the Lernraumkurs " Zentrum Digitale Lehre" and during open, digital office hours every Monday at 09:00 and every Wednesday at 13:00.
- Null-Semester (as of August 31st, 2020)
A change in legislation allows the Summer Semester of 2020 to be considered as a so-called "Null-Semester".
This affects regulations concerning the regular time of study, i.e. it doesn't count as a regular semester for the BAföG calculation or for the exam deadlines. This allows universities and BAföG offices to react quickly and unbureaucratically and help the students.
Examinations taken in the summer semester are not affected.
For further information please refer to the release of the Ministry of Education
- Reporting Corona (as of October 22nd, 2020)
If you test positive for Covid-19, it's incredibly important to minimize your movement and exposure to others. We ask our students to please contact us immediately at corona-meldung(at)th-luebeck.de. Employees should continue to contact Human Resources.
Please also provide us with information about all on-site courses you have attended. The Public Health Department must be informed prior to the university.
- Exams at TH Lübeck (as of January 8th, 2021)
According to the current state regulations, all face-to-face examinations must unfortunately be cancelled this semester.
However, we are going to great lengths to organize the best possible alternatives within the regulatory framework and the short time left. The examination committees are currently reviewing which possible options exist that are compatible with the legal requirements and work closely with all parties involved to implement them.
The procedure is as follows:
- The department informs the lecturers by 08.01. about possible organizational details concerning examinations, in case there are department-specific details.
- In the following days, the "Zentrum für digitale Lehre" (Center for Digital Learning / ZDL) will successively provide more detailed information on possible examination forms.
The examiners inform the examination board by Wednesday evening, 13.01.2021 , which examination form they are planning and present it briefly.
The examination boards will decide until Friday and inform the lecturers and students until Monday, January 18th, which examinations will take place as planned, where alternate examinations are planned, and which examinations will unfortunately have to be cancelled.
If students already register for an exam in the coming week, and its form is then changed, they can of course cancel their registration at any time.
Rough overview of the current regulations on possible exceptions
Presence exams may still be held if the student is in the last semester before the final exam (according to the curriculum) and would otherwise lose a semester until graduation.
Final colloquia may be held if the same conditions apply.
Other forms of exams are also only possible if it would cause an unreasonable delay to the completion of the studies. Unfortunately, we are unable to consider individual cases of hardship concerning exams.
We are all aware that this might lead to difficulties and concerns for many of you. Let us try to deal with this together.
- Academic Calendar (as of November 17th, 2020)
- Lecture period of the Winter Semester 2020/21 for 2nd semester students and higher (first week may include exams)

06.02.2021 - 16.02.2021:
- Examination Period - end of Winter Semester
At the beginning of the coming Summer Semester, we will move the examination period back to the week after Easter. This is because otherwise the time between the exams at the end of WS 20/21 and the beginning of the SS 21 would be too short for students who failed their exams in February to study and re-register.
In agreement with the student bodies and departments, the schedule is as follows:
- 15.03.2021: Start (of lecture period) of the Summer Semester 2021 (Attention, up to now this was the examination period)

- Small-Group Work (as of January 8th, 2021)
The university buildings will stay closed until the end of the semester.
- Cohorts (as of January 8th, 2021)
The creation of cohorts is currently not allowed.
The creation of cohorts allowed us to offer face-to-face teaching in fixed groups, even if the minimum distance rule could not be observed during the course. This is not possible at this time. Cohort arrangements cannot be used in examinations either.
For all courses etc. at TH Lübeck, the minimum distance regulation and the mask mandate, as well as all other regulations, apply.
By forming cohorts we are able to offer more teaching in attendance. You can only be part of one cohort at a time, not several cohorts. Whether you are in a cohort will be communicated to you by the head of your course. The maximum number of people per cohort is limited to 40 as of November 2nd. Members of the same cohort may suspend the minimum distance regulation (and only with members of the same cohort). You must wear a mask Outside of class, all rules including minimum distance and the mask requirement apply to members of cohorts as well. All other hygiene rules apply as well: Before entering the seminar room, hands must be washed. If you experience any signs of illness, please stay at home! There is no compulsory attendance during regular events. Please clarify possible exceptions (e.g. presentations of seminar papers, etc.) with your instructors. Specific regulations will be issued by your instructors. If one person from a cohort gets infected with Corona, the entire cohort must go into quarantine. This means that each and every one of you is responsible for observing the hygiene rules not only for yourself but also for your fellow students - on campus as well as in your private life! If there are problems with the implementation of the Corona regulations, please contact the Clearingstelle of your department. Contact details and all further information can be found at www.th-luebeck.de/coronainfo.
- Contact Tracing (as of October 22nd, 2020)
For each course the contact details of all participants will be recorded. Ideally, you provide both your e-mail address and telephone number. At least one of those is required. In addition, we ask that you enter your contact information in your profile in the Lernraum under "Optional Entries" so that we can reach you in case of an emergency/ for contact tracing. Please check your e-mail accounts regularly!
- On-Site Teaching (as of January 8th, 2021)
The “Hochschulen Coronaverordnung” of the state of Schleswig-Holstein (Corona regulations concerning universities) set the basics for teaching operations during the pandemic.
These regulations are being extended and must be implemented by us at TH Lübeck.
The following applies to TH Lübeck on the basis of the Hochschulen-Coronaverordnung until the end of the Winter Semester on February 28th, 2021:
1. Digital formats will be used for teaching. Individual exceptions can be made exclusively for practical courses (such as laboratories and internships), and only if it would cause an unreasonable delay to the completion of the studies.
Individual decisions are made by the Dean's Office following a substantiated request by the lecturer.
The lecturers will inform their students whether / how the individual courses can take place.
All changes to studies and teaching due to the pandemic are laid out in the "Corona Statutes".
- Transition from Bachelor to Master (as of July 10th, 2020)
In accordance with the "Corona Act", the requirements for enrolling in a Master's program at TH Lübeck for the Winter Semester 2020/21 are as follows :
A total of 50 ECTS from the preliminary studies may be missing on 20.8.2020 and 30 ECTS on the 30.9.2020. These must be provided by 28.2.2021.
For clarification: it is assumed that 30 ECTS are still missing from the current semester and subsequently from further open examinations (or outstanding results of projects, exams, etc.). 20 ECTS are used as an estimate for this. This means that 50 ECTS less are expected at the application deadline on 20.08.2020 than usually necessary.
By 30.09.20 it can be assumed that at least the results from the repeat exams of the previous semesters will be available and that only 30 ECTS from the current semester will remain open.

Many institutions and associations would like to help cope with the Corona situation and are looking for support. In addition, whole sectors such as agriculture are experiencing severe staff shortages due to travel restrictions, so if you would like to help, we have listed a number of links here:
- VICTOR Lübeck is a registered association that offers help, initiates projects and coordinates helpers.Victor offers access to events, initiatives and projects on the campus and in Lübeck. On its website, VICTOR has set up a web portal concerning the current coronavirus pandemic (Hilfsportal COVID-19).
- The University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH) needs volunteers, support and donations: www.uksh-helfen.de
- Ekipa, together with StudySmarter, organizes an innovation competition on the responsibility of universities and colleges in view of the social challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. What can educational institutions, explicitly universities, do against the spread and the societal risks posed by the "Covid-19" pandemic? How can they use their resources (multifunctionally)? These questions are to be addressed with the help of the non-profit project "University X Corona". Students as well as scientists are called upon to generate ideas, approaches and solutions for the different challenges posed by the pandemic.
Jobs for students in sectors with increased staff requirements due to the pandemic
- The corona virus must be contained and its proliferation must be slowed down. Freedom of travel is restricted throughout Europe. As a result, our farmers are up to 300 000 workers short. Simultaneously, many people employed in the gastronomic and retail sectors are unable to go to work.
- Loan Opportunities and Interim Financial Aid for Students (as of November 30th, 2020)
From June to September 2020, students at state-recognized universities in Germany were able to apply for an interim financial aid in the form of a grant from the regional student union/ Studentenwerk to ease pandemic-related hardships.

- University Sport (as of May 8th, 2020)
The Winter Semester 2020/21 is just around the corner and the University Sports is making every effort to provide us with a sports program for the coming semester.
Unfortunately, due to the Corona pandemic with the current increase in the number of infections, the offer will not be as colorful and extensive as it used to be.
Since there will only be a limited number of places available, we would like to ask you to only book a course if you can participate in at least 80% of the planned sessions.
Estimated start of booking is from Friday, 16.10.2020, and the estimated start of courses will be from Monday, 19.10.2020.
We hope that everyone who wants and has time will also find a suitable course of their choice.

- Job Markets
Jobs for students in industries with increased staffing needs due to the pandemic.
The Corona Virus must be contained, the spread must be slowed down. Freedom of travel is restricted throughout Europe. As a result, our farmers are short of up to 300,000 workers. At the same time, many people employed in catering or retail cannot work.
