Start of summer semester postponed

In its meeting today, the Bavarian Cabinet postponed the start of lectures at Bavarian universities of applied sciences (UAS) to 20 April 2020 as a protective measure against the further spread of the coronavirus. Our Ministry of Science has just informed us accordingly. Therefore, all lectures and other teaching activities at the FHWS may only start at this time. Ongoing lectures/courses and other events must be stopped immediately and can be restarted only after this date. This also applies to pre-seminars, block seminars, and similar courses and field trips.

More detailed information on how to deal with the resulting consequences will be provided as soon as possible.
