Information and updates about the coronavirus

Date: 30 September 2022

Dear students, lecturers, and visitors,

The following information is relevant for the winter semester (start: 1 October 2022):

This semester will be taught in person

We believe social interaction is a vital and valuable part of studying and we want to make sure you get as much out of your time at SRH as possible. That means all courses will be taught at their campuses and you will be able to attend classes in person.

However, we grant exceptions to students who are unable to enter the country because of problems with their visas. If we can verify that it isn’t possible for you to enter Germany because of visa issues, you may request your lecturers to offer hybrid teaching. We will provide you with a temporary solution for a maximum of 5 weeks after the start of the semester.

Masks recommended

Although masks are not compulsory, we recommend that SRH students and staff wear masks in all university buildings. This will protect yourself and others.

If you have Covid-19 symptoms, please stay home and get tested as a precaution.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

Best regards,

SRH Berlin
