Information Letter from the TU Berlin Crisis Committee - Specific Measures for Students

Tuesday, 17. March 2020

Dear Colleagues, Dear Students,

The following measures are being implemented with immediate effect by Department I to reduce the spread of the coronavirus:

Department I is suspending all face-to-face office hours until 20.04.2020.
However, all sections within Department I can be contacted by email as usual.

Enrollment

Should it emerge that you have failed to submit necessary documents with your application for enrollment or that documents have not been provided in the specified manner, then you will be informed of a deadline for submitting missing documents. For bachelor´s programs this is three weeks and for master´s programs with no admission restrictions up to six weeks after the start of the lecture period. Individual grace periods will be granted for master´s programs with restricted admission.

If you are not able to provide proof of your successfully completed bachelor´s degree by the end of the 2nd degree semester of your master´s program, please inform us of this together with the reason by sending an email to .

Students who do not provide proof of their bachelor´s degree by 01.04.2020 will be provided an additional grace period until the end of April. If they cannot provide the necessary proof by then, they will be officially exmatriculated. Should this problem, however, arise due to circumstances beyond the student´s control, then the following applies:

  • Proof of a successfully completed bachelor´s degree will be accepted up to six weeks after the start of the lecture period (no reason required). This currently means that for summer semester 2020 until /29.05.2020 and until 27.11.2020 for winter semester 2020/21.

  • The only requirement is that you inform Graduate Admissions in advance by email at . Your exmatriculation will then be reversed and you will be re-registered. Please note that this is a grace period.

  • Should it not be possible to submit proof of your bachelor´s degree by the end of the grace period referred to above: You should apply for reinstatement to master@r1a.tu-berlin.de within a two-week period of receiving proof of your bachelor´s degree. Please note that this is only possible up to one year after the end of the second degree semester (until 31.03.2021). Your application for reinstatement must include proof of your bachelor´s degree and a plausible explanation for the delay (i.e. that it was due to circumstances beyond your control).

If you have any questions, please address them to:

Re-registration

In principle, re-registration should be completed by 31.03.2020. However, there will be a grace period and you will not be officially exmatriculated before 20.04.2020 This means that you have until this date to re-register for summer semester 2020. An individual extension can also be granted if you are unable to submit any documents due to circumstances beyond your control.

Examinations

Implications for examinations

  • No in-person examinations will be taking place at TU Berlin from 19.3.2020 until further notice.

  • For examinations canceled by the University, registration for the exam will be automatically revoked.

  • Currently there is no requirement to submit an application for an extension due to the cancellation or withdrawal from a repeat examination  to your examination board. Summer semester 2020 will not be included in the calculation of deadlines for repeat examinations. This means that deadlines set for 31.03.2020 or 30.09.2020 will be automatically extended until winter semester 2020/21, in other words until 31.03.2021 (as for academic leave of absence).

  • Submission dates for term papers and other written work will be suspended from 12.03.2020 until normal operations are resumed for students (not before 11.05.2020). This means that you will have the full period for completing term papers etc. from the time the University returns to normal operation, including the reopening of libraries, PC labs, etc. There will be no disadvantages for you.

  • Should you de-register for or withdraw from an examination/term paper, then this will not count as an attempt.

  • Students will not have an opportunity to view examinations or term papers until further notice.

  • This will only be possible once regular operations have been resumed for students. The one-year period for challenging grades will only begin once regular operations have been resumed thus ensuring that there are no disadvantages to you arising from current circumstances.

Implications for final theses

  • Final theses are to be registered by email to the relevant exams team.

  • Submission dates for final theses will be suspended from 12.03.2020 until normal operations are resumed for students (not before 11.05.2020). This means that you will have the full period for completing your final thesis from the time the University returns to normal operations, including the reopening of libraries, PC labs, etc. There will be no disadvantages for you.

  • If you withdraw from a final thesis, this will not count as an attempt.

  • Final theses can be submitted by standard mail. The post stamp date determines whether a deadline has been met or not. Final theses can be handed into the information desk. Please place in a sealed envelope addressed to your exams team together with the title of your degree program (Abteilung I – Studierendenservice, Referat Prüfungen, Team IB 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5, Degree program:

Implications for certificates

You will be informed by email when certificates are ready. This email will ask you for your current mail address. Your certificates will then be sent to you by standard mail.
