The NRW Ministry of Education and Research has announced that courses for first-semester students will begin on November 2, 2020, while those for students in higher semesters will begin on October 26, 2020.

Further information on course dates will be provided via the virtual learning platform.

“We expect that large-group lectures and courses will be offered digitally for the duration of the entire winter semester. The decision as to whether smaller courses can again take place in person is not likely to be made before the fall,” said Professor Aloys Krieg, Vice-Rector for Teaching, in an email to instructors and students.

Updated RWTH Remote Work Guidelines

May 27th, 2020 | by

Despite the easing of restrictions and regulations in some areas of public life, the coronavirus still is a national public health emergency. In order to protect employees and students from infection, RWTH needs to take measures that are appropriate in the current situation.

Now the University needs to determine the next steps towards resuming normal operations, which will hopefully become possible soon.

As far as work from home arrangements are concerned, after June 1, 2020, working from home is to be encouraged where feasible, i.e., as long as employees can fulfill their essential job duties remotely and it contributes to improved prevention of infection.

In order to achieve an appropriate solution that takes the interests of all involved into account, managers in the respective University institutions should consult with their employees.

In principle, there are no objections against carrying out essential tasks on campus at RWTH as long as this does not involve any risk higher than that posed by engaging in normal everyday activities.
