FAQs on the 2021/22 winter semester

29.09.2021 - September update by the administration office of Social and Cultural Anthropology

What will this new semester look like?Hide

Face-to-face teaching in the course of studies will once again become the norm. This will be made possible by relaxing the strict spacing rules that have applied up to now for classroom teaching in the context of on-site infection control and health protection. Currently, we plan to occupy the lecture halls and seminar rooms with 50% of the available seats. The mask requirements will remain in effect. Digital and digitally supported formats will continue to be available to supplement face-to-face teaching.

To find out which model is used in the seminars you are interested in, please check our weekly overview, as well as your course on cmlife and on e-learning. Your teaching staff will provide all other necessary information concerning your course via E-Learning as well.

Still hungry for news?
Interesting information on events, job offers and anthropology-related topics will be updated and announced via our ASP-KuWi-UBT mailing list. We are looking forward to your subscriptions.

When and where do I register for my courses?Hide

Unfortunately, the restrictions to cope with COVID-19 have required us to limit the flexibility of your studies. It is still necessary that you register for your courses on the platform cmlife as room capacities are quite limited. If a seminar has already been fully booked when you want to enroll, you are automatically placed on a waiting list. Should other students decide to withdraw from their previously booked seminar spot, these open spaces will be filled with students from the waiting list. Therefore please deregister from your course until 20.10.21 if you decide to not take part in it, giving your fellow students the chance to move up. We rely on your cooperation and of course also try to cater for your needs in this situation.

All information concerning the content of your seminars is going to be released on e-learning. We work hard to make sure that you will have access to seminar plans and other details in the following weeks, to make it easier for you to structure your curriculum (and to choose the courses you want to register for). Please use this opportunity prior to the beginning of the new semster.
