Important note for students in the Bachelor of Geography:
Geographical colloquium becomes compulsory

The module "GEO.07190 Vertiefung Geographisches Arbeiten" is a compulsory module in the Bachelor Geography (180/120 LP) in the 6th semester.

From the next semester on, attendance of the Geographical Colloquium is a fixed component (1 SWS) of this module. In order to fulfil the course credit, a protocol of at least 7 colloquium dates must be prepared, among other things.

We recommend all Bachelor students who still have to take this module to inform themselves regularly about the concrete dates of the Geographical Colloquium and to start collecting the confirmations of participation (see protocol).

The Geographical Colloquium takes place on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. in lecture hall 4 1.43. The respective chair confirms participation on site by signing and stamping the protocol.

The form for the protocol and the current programme of the Geographical Colloquium in WS 22/23 can be downloaded here. Further dates will be announced continuously by email to the student email addresses.

Note for new students in the 1st year (Bachelor and Master)

All first-semester students can register for information events for all GEO degree programmes in the "studIP". New information events will be announced and dates published here continuously until the end of the 2nd semester.

Use the Central Orientation Days at our university for a very general  introduction to studying! The so-called "O-Days" are basically intended  for all new students at the University of Halle who have questions  about studying and living in Halle.

There are also special orientation events     (mostly bilingual) for our international first-year students.

Distance exams

On 17.02.2021, the Senate passed a Distance Examination Regulation    for the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, which applies to all module examinations with immediate effect. Please read the regulations for online examinations (supervised online examinations as a substitute for presence examinations) and online examinations (unsupervised examination formats, e.g. open book examinations or take home examinations).

The LLZ has compiled an overview of the online examination formats used at MLU.

Substitute benefits for internships

Students who cannot find a suitable internship within the standard period of study due to the far-reaching Corona measures can apply to the examination board responsible for them for approval of a substitute performance. The substitute performance must be equivalent in terms of workload and scope.

The application to the examination board must be comprehensibly justified. It must be evident that this is the last missing module performance. The applicant must prove that he/she has tried in vain to find a placement.

Students who wish to make use of this regulation submit an informal application to the responsible examination board chairperson. The application contains complete data on the name, matriculation number and degree programme as well as:

  • a current transcript of records
  • letters of application and refusals of the internships (scan)

Please send the application by email to the Office of Student Affairs. The application will be examined by the examination board and if the decision is positive, you will receive a substitute assignment.
