Here you can find the pool of information on how the pandemic affects our teaching activities and services. If you will be attending campus, please ensure you observe our current Infection Prevention and Control Plan.
Lectures (also practical lab exercises, inspecting assessments): Summer Semester 2022 will be conducted face-to-face. Should the situation with infections deteriorate significantly, teaching could also revert to digital options.
Examinations: Examinations will take place in the formats stipulated in the Programme and Examination Regulations (“SPO”). We will provide information about the regulations for conducting examinations in due course.
Regulations for the transition to normal operations: The following notice explains how the transition will be handled from studying under corona to normal conditions, depending how long you have been studying.
Final theses: The deadline for registering a final thesis after completing the final module examination required for your course of study has been suspended.
If you are currently unable to identify a topic for your final thesis, the following back-up solutions are possible:
Final theses can be submitted by hand addressed to “Abteilung Studium der Hochschule Kempten” (Kempten University of Applied Sciences – Academic Registry), via the mailbox in Building V during the opening hours of our mail room. Alternatively, you can send your final thesis by post to: Hochschule Kempten, Abteilung Studium, Postfach 1680, 87406 Kempten, Germany. If the corona pandemic causes a delay that students cannot be held responsible for, which causes them to miss the deadline, they can apply for an extension in accordance with § 14 no. 7 sentence 4 APO by explaining the specific reasons to the relevant examinations board in an email sent via Academic Registry.
