Course and Exam Structure in the Fall Term 2020/21

Due to COVID-19 prevention measures the VGUH has to implement strict rules für the Fall Term 2020/21. If you think you have any symptoms of COVID-19, you are not allowed to enter the building of the VGUH before you clarified the situation with the Gesundeitsbehörde (Tefefon 1450). The directions of the Gesundheitsbehörde must be followed. These rules also apply to the Ergänungsprüfungen, which means you cannot participate in the Exam if you have any COVID-19 symptoms before having clarified the situation with the Gesundheitsbehörde. Please inform us, if you do not participate in the Exam due to directions of the Gesundheitsbehörde. Please be advised that we cannot allow you to participate in the Examination, if we believe you show COVID-19 symptoms. The means we also have to stop your Exam, in case you have already started. The course and exam structure for the Fall term can be found in the Guidelines and extended house rules. For more information visit the German website or contact the Lehrgangsbüro.
