Studying in Times of Corona

Summer Semester 2021

For the Summer Semester 2021 we are planning to continue with a blended learning concept. This will entail an intelligent mix of online offerings and on-site teachings for all study programs. Of course, on-site teaching is subject to future infection rates and a further easing of infection control regulations. We are taking all these concerns into consideration when creating our implementation plan and they are part of the reason why we will be taking a blended approach to the next semester.

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

The lecture period for the summer semester 2021 is from 12 April 2021 until 16 July 2021.

We ask that you register for courses, as usual, via TUMonline from 15 March 2021 (for courses with unlimited spots) and from 24 March 2021 (for courses with limited spots). Registration is only possible during the registration period and if you are fully matriculated (if all necessary documents have been handed in: April 1). Please note that it may take until the beginning ofthe lecture period until all courses are on TUMonline and pay attentions to the deadlines.

For the offer of the elective modules, please check your curricular support in TUMonline, which lists all courses that will take place. For help in navigating TUMonline, please check our manual on course planning and scheduling. You can find more information on how to register for courses here and in our manual on course planning.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, to the best of their ability and with exemplary support from ProLehre Media and Didactics, all members of TUM teaching staff have prepared synchronous and asynchronous online courses using electronic resources. We will do everything we can to ensure that our mutual collaboration and interactive exchange with the help of electronic 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.

Each lecturer decided individually, how his or her class is structured and which teaching format suits the course best. Your central sources of information are Moodle and TUMonline for each course. Many courses will use Lecturio recordings combined with other teaching formats; others will be streamed live or will be prepared in advance and made available in video format via Moodle. Information on exercises and tutorials are given under the respective module in TUMonline.

All courses of the TUM School of Management with a limited number of places, for example (Advanced) Seminars, (Advanced) Topics and other limited courses, are distributed through TUMonline. Students will receive an email with further information on the process in due time.
