CORONA: Impact on the enrolment process

Update 15.06.2020:


Dear Students,

please check the information regarding our enrolment process WS 2020/2021 here.

Stay safe and see you soon.


Impact on the application process

Dear Students

as we receive many emails at the moment concerning the corona virus and possible impacts on the upcoming winter semester, we would like to provide the following additional information:

  1. Will the application period be prolonged?
    We intend to stick to the application deadline of March 31st. The reason is, that a prolongation will cause problems with the follow up milestones like requesting a visa, getting a loan etc.
  2. I cannot take a IELTS or Toefl test. What can I do?
    In this case, please upload a proof that you have registered for a test. If the rest of the profile is excellent, the admission board may decide to give you an "acceptance with restrictions", meaning that you have to provide the missing document until enrollment.
  3. Alternative English Tests - We also accept TOEFL certificates. Toefl has annonced At Home Tests, which might be an alternative in the current situation. Please check their webpage

As courier services are not reliably operational at the moment, the following process will be used this year

  1. We will send you a PDF admission letter instead of the paper document, once your application has been accepted AND you have transmitted your admission fee. This letter will contain an email address for validation, if requested by your local authorities.
  2. If possible, please try to send us your certified documents.
  3. In case this is not possible due to the corona virus,

    • please inform us explicitly AFTER you have transferred the admission fee
    • fill out the form "Declaration missing certified copies" available in the further information section
    • and send us the signed affidavit AND the additional declaration AND  the payment slip as proof by email (master.fbe@h-da.de)

  4. The deadlines for the payments will still  be valid, as you need to apply for visa etc. afterwards.
  5. You must bring the certified documents for the enrollment.

When and how will the classes start in the winter semester?

As the situation in Germany - at least at the moment - seems to stabilize, we hope that the courses will start regulary in thís winter semester. The starting  date for the lectures will probably be in November (final descision to be taken by government and university officials). Our pre-courses will start in September. Why?

  1. This allows us to spread the presemester and German classes over 2 month. I.e. even if you have to stay in quarantine after your arrival in Germany (at the moment everybody from a foreign country has to do this for 2 weeks), we would have sufficent time to get you prepared. Furthermore, we will be more flexible for late arrivals due to visa problems, which are also expected due to the crisis.
  2. Our housing contracts with external companies start in September, which means, we have to rent the rooms also in September, if we don't want to loose them.
  3. Wether the classes will start as attendance classes or partly  / fully as online courses (as we do in the current summer semester) will depend on the situation in autumn.

Can the fees be refunded in case I descide not to come due to the Corona situation?

We fully understand this question and the difficult situation you are in. However, as the fees are being used to cover only part of the additional running costs we have with this international master, a refund will not be possible in general. We try to keep the fees as low as possible!

Admission Fee: The admission fee, which is due early, cannot be refunded, as the ongoing administrative services (checking your documents, running our online portal,..)are being paid by this fee.

Housing Fee: The housing fee is used to arrange a contract between you and an external housing company. Typically, a refund is not possible once this contract has been agreed (i.e. once we give your name to the housing agency). Please be aware, that due to our contracts with the external companies the university has to pay a three month penalty if a room is not taken. Which means that the housing service also creates a huge fincancial risk for us this year.

Precourse and Enrollment Fee: At lease the enrollment fee (part) may be shifted on request to a later semester in case you cannot come (you need to have a proven reason) due to the virus situation.

We keep you informed on the situation by email and on this page.

Stay healthy!

Prof. P. Fromm (Master Course Director)
