Special Newsletter: May 18th, 2020

Dear WiSo students,

many people are still working to ensure that a regular course of study remains possible despite the limited presence operation.In many places - not only at the WiSo Faculty - complicated processes have to be coordinated and procedures have to be found to ensure a trouble-free study under the given circumstances. 

A lot has already been done. In this newsletter we have summarized the most important changes and new developments at faculty level since the last newsletter on April 21st, 2020.

Information from the Examination Office

Information on centrally organised mid-term examinations and making up for the cancelled March examinations

The Examination Office has published on its homepage new information on making up for the centrally organised examinations that were cancelled in March and on the centrally organised midterm examinations. A registration is now possible as usual via Klips 2. You will find all information on the Website of the WiSo-Examination-Office.

Further changes master admission

Due to the coronavirus we will make further, subsequent changes in the application process for the master's programmes:

  1. Certified documents: No certified documents need to be submitted with the application. It is sufficient if you upload uncertified documents. However, these must still be official and submitted in German or English language.
    This regulation applies to applications via the Master's application portal of the University of Cologne as well as via uni-assist. For international applicants, there is no need to send certified copies by post to uni-assist; a pure online application is sufficient.
    The certified documents or originals must be presented when enrolling at the latest.
  2. Proof of English: for Chinese applicants we accept the TOEFL ITP® Plus

Please find a summary of all currently valid changes on the master‘s application website.

Information of the WiSo Faculty Library Service

Partial access for lending and return

Since the beginning of May, partial access for lending and return is again possible in four libraries of the WiSo Faculty.
Before visiting the libraries, please check our Corona-information page for Details

It is currently still difficult to make binding statements regarding coronavirus in many cases. Relevant information concerning the Wiso-Faculty is available except in this newsletter on the WiSo website. We also recommend that you inform yourself on the respective subpages and channels.

On the part of the University, the Rectorate provides information about current measures and advise on the continuously updated website
