TEACHING IN THE SUMMER TERM 2021

Online teaching at the WiSo Faculty in Summer term 2021:

At the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences (WiSo) all courses, especially lectures and corresponding tutorials are offered digitally. This applies to all modules offered by the WiSo Faculty, thus all modules which have a module code beginning with VWL- or with BWL-.

Voluntary additional attendance offers:

If conditions permit, the digital courses can be supplemented by additional presence elements without compulsory attendance. In the interest of joint academic work, teaching and learning in presence may be additionally facilitated in smaller seminars and tutorials and on a voluntary basis. We therefore ask you to pay attention to the announcements of the particular courses in UnivIS and in OpenOlat.

 

Welcome of the new students in the 1st semester:

This regulation also applies to the new students of the 1st semester in the Master programs. We will make a special effort to offer these students orientation.

In order to participate in the online courses and online exams at the WiSo-Faculty, students need the following equipment:

  •     Laptop/computer
  •     a stable Internet connection

We recommend that you take care of this as early as possible, because under the current conditions, the quality of your studies depends on it more than usually.
