Making sure the summer semester goes ahead
RUB’s primary objective is to offer students a full summer semester from 20 April 2020. Despite the lack of classroom teaching during the lecture term, students will be able to acquire credit points as usual. To this end, lecturers are converting their courses to online classes. Internships, experiments, excursions or visits to archives should be replaced or postponed as far as possible by equivalent courses, while maintaining social distancing.
“The faculties, central academic institutions and all their lecturers are highly committed and are working out creative solutions to prepare online teaching for their disciplines,” as Vice Rector Professor Kornelia Freitag outlines the plan for the summer semester.
