Information to summer semester 2021 for prospective students

Study and teaching in the summer semester 2021 will predominantly take place online. Nevertheless, courses with practical components will be held in person on campus in compliance with infection control measures.
We recognise that it is particularly important for first-semester students to get to know the University as well as their teachers and fellow students. Therefore, individual events for first-semester students will be offered on campus. 

In last year's student survey, studying in the pandemic semester at Ulm University was generally rated positively. Our students appreciate the flexibility that these formats allow. This also benefits academic performance, which was stable during this time.
