Update 3 July: business travel and study-related activity abroad


Business trips abroad are not permitted until further notice, unless the Executive Board gives prior permission in writing. This applies to all trips, regardless of the colour code. For the time being, extreme caution is being exercised with approving foreign travel. Trips already planned must be re-submitted to the Executive Board for approval


All exchange programmes in the first semester of the academic year 2020-2021 have been cancelled due to the coronavirus. Students may not travel abroad for study-related activities until, at this stage, 1 February 2021. If you have plans to go abroad for your studies outside an exchange programme, for example for an internship, the university can, in very exceptional cases, grant you permission to do so.
