Dear Students, Staff and Guests of the University of Münster,

To our great relief, the infection rates in Münster and NRW have fallen to such an extent that the University of Münster can now take further steps towards reopening in adherence to the Coronavirus Protection Regulations and the “General Directive for Conducting Courses, Practical Elements and Examinations at Universities of North Rhine-Westphalia”.

Students of all semesters are now allowed to attend in-person courses offered with simultaneous digital access.

The University management has announced that students must be allowed to complete the current semester in digital form. The departments should ensure that a corresponding digital programme is available.

In addition, students of all semesters may now participate in hybrid elements (in-person instruction with simultaneous digital access) and additive, in-person elements. The faculties have been asked to provide detailed information about these courses on their respective websites.

Let us all work together responsibly so that the University can return to full operation with in-person instruction – a goal we can achieve by taking care of each other and doing everything we can to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
