Courses, practical trainings and examinations
HSD has adopted regulations to counteract the impact of the pandemic on your studies (Neubekanntmachung der Ordnung zur Kompensation der Folgen der Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2-Epidemie für Studium und Lehre an der Hochschule Düsseldorf vom 18.06.2020 – document in German only). These regulations allow the faculties to deviate from existing regulations so that you can successfully continue your studies under the current conditions (e.g. to offer courses and examinations in different formats, postpone examinations or waive certain prerequisites).
The corona regulations increase the individual normal programme length by one semester. This applies to all students who are enrolled at HSD for the summer semester 2020 (and have not requested leave of absence for this semester) as well as all cross-registered students as defined in the higher education act.
Your faculty will keep you posted on any relevant changes concerning your studies.
Until further notice, no excursions can take place.
External internships may take place, if the respective internship provider does not decide otherwise. The Examination Boards decide on further approaches and proceedings
