Dear Students, Dear Lecturers,
After three digital semesters necessitated by the pandemic, the increase in the number of people vaccinated means that we may be able to hold classes in person during winter semester 2021/22. To attend an in-person class, you must either be vaccinated, have recovered from COVID, or have a negative test result (3G rule).
An in-person semester does not mean that all courses will take place on campus. Both instructors and students have found the teaching videos created in the last semesters to be an effective method of teaching and learning. As such, these will continue to be used, especially in lectures with a large number of students. However, supplemental synchronous offers which have fewer participants, such as practical tutorials, tutorials, and Q&A sessions, as well as other types of courses which require direct interaction, such as seminars and project groups, will take place in person.
Please be aware that a primarily in-person semester requires you to be in Berlin if you wish to fully attend and participate in your courses. We do not have the resources to offer classes both in-person and digitally at the same time. Streaming from lecture halls will only be offered in individual cases.
This will only be possible if the number of infections remains low in the fall and as many students as possible are fully vaccinated by October.
TU Berlin is working with a vaccination clinic to offer appointments for the first and second vaccine doses. Please use this offer if you are unable to make other arrangements.
Professor Dr. Hans-Ulrich Heiß, Vice President for Education, Digitalization, and Sustainability
