Do I have to be present at the BTU at the beginning of the lecture period / will my course of studies be offered online?
The BTU sees itself as an in-person university and plans to resume regular courses starting in the summer semester 2022, as far as the pandemic situation allows. The opening of our university stands for joint learning, creative exchange and a lively campus life. The BTU has taken all precautions to responsibly take steps into in-person teaching. We are responding to current changes in the pandemic by offering flexible teaching and learning formats.
In general, you should apply for a visa as soon as possible! As long as the pandemic situation in your home country allows you to travel safely and you can comply with the quarantine regulations, you are welcome to come to Germany - even if some of the study content takes place online. The BTU is an in-person university and will increase the proportion of in-person teaching as soon as the situation allows.
Can I get a letter of entry?
Yes! If you need such a letter, please send a request to international+studentsupport(at)b-tu.de.
When will I receive the access data to my BTU account?
You will receive your user name and a password as soon as your registration (matriculation) is completed, i.e. when you have submitted all necessary documents and when the semester fee has been received.
The BTU-account is your "membership at the BTU". It gives you access to the online portal, where you can register for all modules, to the Moodle learning platform, where almost all lecturers deposit their lecture and seminar materials, and to your BTU e-mail address.
Can I complete my entire studies online?
No. The BTU is an attendance university and the courses will be offered again under regular circumstances and as soon as the situation with the pandemic allows it.
What´s going to happen in the next few weeks?
The development of the corona epidemic is very dynamic. Our university is continuously monitoring the situation and worldwide events, following the advice of authorities and experts. Whether further adjustments may be necessary will be decided at a future date if necessary. Therefore, please keep yourself up to date here!
The Robert Koch Institute publishes daily updated information on the situation in Germany.
