  • General overview of measures
    Based on the decisions of the Federal Chancellor and the Minister Presidents, the legal foundations have been decided in NRW. The following regulations apply to teaching at the Institute of Sport Science:

    Lectures will be held in attendance with the normal number of participants in the lecture halls. 3G applies, which is checked in front of the entrances. Spacing and tracking are omitted, the mask requirement remains (also in place, except for the person giving the lecture). Ventilation rules create cool temperatures, we recommend warm clothing.Persons with symptoms of a cold are not allowed to attend courses.

    Theory seminars are conducted in presence with the same rules as in the lectures (mask obligation, ventilation, 3G). The 3G status is checked here by the lecturer before each seminar hour. It will also be uncomfortably cool in all seminar rooms, depending on the outside temperature. Persons with symptoms of a cold are not allowed to attend courses.

    Practical seminars are conducted in presence, but 2G applies here. Unvaccinated students may only participate if they can present a current (48h max.) negative PCR test. Rapid tests - even from official testing stations - are not accepted. Persons with symptoms of a cold are not allowed to attend courses.
    (NEW) Masks are also compulsory indoors and outdoors. As soon as breathing difficulties occur, the exercise can be paused and the mask can be removed - at a distance from the course - for breathing recovery.

    The AGs are subject to the same regulations as the practical seminars, so 2G applies.

    Excursions can take place with the specifications, but as always the Corona specifications of the destination must be observed.

    The compulsory attendance for courses that take place in presence is suspended for the winter semester 21/22 (i.e. also retroactively!).

    All theory examinations will continue to take place in the digital form, the subject-specific practical examinations will be conducted with the changed rules analogous to the practical seminars, whereby here the 2G control is carried out by the examiners. For the winter semester 2021/22, the free attempt rule will again apply, which allows withdrawal from the examination up to the day of the examination. Examinations that are not passed are deemed not to have been taken. The regulation does not apply to final papers and in the case of attempted cheating. If students have to go into quarantine due to an order from the Health Office, they are considered to be unfit for examinations for presence examinations. Students were asked to be able to prove this accordingly upon request.

    Hygiene measures
    All hygiene concepts continue to apply unchanged. The current regulations on behaviour in teaching, research and on duty, as well as on the obligation to wear masks, can be found in a familiar place in the Corona FAQ (Health and Safety section).

    Corona tests

    To check for a possible infection, the EMU recommends that you (even as a vaccinated or recovered person) use the rapid tests available at the public testing centres and thus contribute to your own and everyone's safety. All persons residing in Germany are entitled to at least one free rapid test per week (citizen testing). You can find the test centres in Münster at

  • Support for students


    • All lecturers are aware that the studies will bring special challenges for you. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact them directly if you have any questions about the course.
    • As always, the Service Center for Sports Science will help you with any questions regarding the organization of your studies:
    • For more extensive problems due to the Corona crisis, e.g. in health, family or financial matters, we have established a special counseling center for sports students, which is headed by Dr. Christiane Bohn. You are also welcome to contact the counseling center in questions of self-protection during attendance events:

    You are suffering financial distress?
    In coordination with the executive department ‘university funding’ the Corona emergency fund for students was established. Foundation of the WWU, university society Münster e.V. and the AstA bundle their powers and try to help students through these difficult days.
    Please follow this link for further information.

    You are willing to help other students who are in need of financial support?
