Studying in Times of Corona

Winter Semester 2021/22

At present, no one can say with certainty what the studying, teaching and examinations will look like in the winter semester 2021/22.

However, we assume that a large part of the courses and also the examinations will again take place on campus. Therefore, in the winter semester, attendance at the campus will again become a requirement for a regular degree program.

In the winter semester 2021/22, pandemic-related exceptions to deadlines, examinations, study progress monitoring or other regulations will also no longer apply. The requirements for a regular degree program are thus once again the same as before the outbreak of the pandemic.

Relevant information on modules and courses, teaching formats, examinations and more

The lecture period for the winter semester 2021/22 is from October 18, 2021, until February 11, 2022.

We kindly ask that you register for the courses, via TUMonline. Registration is only possible during the registration period, please check the information in our homepage or directly in TUMonline.

For the modules, please check your curriculum tree in TUMonline and our manual on course planning & scheduling here. The registration of courses of the TUM School of Management with a limited number of places, for example (Advanced) Seminars, (Advanced) Topics and other limited courses, is done via TUMonline. Students will receive an email with further information on the process in due time.

During the pandemic, all members of TUM teaching staff have prepared synchronous and asynchronous online courses using digital resources. There are several methods that are being used during pandemic time such as Lecturio, live streaming, or Moodle. Each lecturer decides individually, how his or her class is structured and which teaching format suits the course and the current situation the best.

We are doing our best to ensure that our mutual collaboration and interactive exchange with the help of digital teaching formats runs smoothly during this pandemic. Please support our lecturers by actively participating in chats, quizzes and synchronous sessions, as well as by thoughtful engagement with the material provided to you in the form of video sequences.
