Cancellation of office hours

New Lounges

The winter semester is now living up to its name - the outside temperatures have dropped significantly. That's why we have taken up the request of the student council and created a few additional seating options. These are located in House 3 on the fourth floor and in House 4 on the third floor. Here, students can spend the one-hour breaks between lectures that are required by the corona. We ask all users to follow the distance rules and to wear the required medical mask.

You will find additional seating in the corners and end areas of several other floors of our two buildings, in the library, in the Heide-Mensa and in the Ein-Stein cafeteria. Please note the access and residence regulations that apply there.

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

All first-semester students can register for information events for all GEO degree programmes in the "studIP". New information events are continuously announced and dates published there.

Winter semester 2021/2022 - Classroom teaching

The winter semester 21/22 starts with face-to-face teaching! Please be prepared for all courses to be held in presence. Please read the current Rectorate decision and the explanations on the organisation of the winter semester 2021/2022.

The so-called 3G rule applies in all classroom events. Only fully vaccinated ("Geimpft"), recovered ("Genesen") and negatively tested ("Getestet") persons are allowed to enter the event rooms.

Vaccinated: Complete vaccination with a vaccine approved in Germany (plus immunisation period, usually 14 days) is proven by a printed or digital official proof of vaccination (e.g. in the Corona warning app of the federal government).

Recovery: Official confirmation is also required to prove that an infection has been overcome.

Tested: A negative test for SARS-CoV2 viruses can be done by a PCR test (not older than 48 hours) or by an antigen test ("rapid test", not older than 24 hours). An antigen test can be performed by a public testing station or as a self-test. In the first case, a certificate issued by the testing station must be presented; in the case of a self-test, a self-disclosure form (see document box) must be completed.

Further questions are answered on the general information pages of the MLU.

With the electronic self-registration, which is mandatory before every event, everyone present automatically declares that one of the three requirements is met. For self-registration, QR codes are attached to the doors, which participants must use to register with the Löwen app. Check-out is not required.

As a matter of principle, masks are compulsory on the "circulation areas" in our buildings (corridors, toilets, waiting areas)! Whether you can remove your mask in the learning room at your seat depends on whether the distance of 1.5 m between each other can be maintained. Please follow the instructions of the respective teacher.

New examination regulations Bachelor Geography 180 LP and 120 LP

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.
