Informationen on the new Corona Virus


Here the university informs about current developments regarding the new type of corona virus. It is important to us to protect students and employees as much as possible from infection by providing information and safety measures.

The main transmission pathway for the corona virus is droplet infection. The virus can reach the mucous membranes of the respiratory tract via droplets containing the virus by travelling from person to person. However, transmission can also take place indirectly via the hands. An infection can lead to symptoms such as fever, cough, cold and fatigue, but also to breathing problems, headaches, aching limbs and diarrhoea.

At the University of Applied Sciences Aschaffenburg, no corona virus infections are known as yet. Nevertheless, we ask all students and employees to observe the general hygiene measures to protect against infections.

Comprehensive information about the corona virus can be found on the websites of the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) and the Robert Koch Institute.

Important information for students

On March 10, the Bavarian Cabinet decided to postpone the start of the 2020 summer semester at the universities of applied sciences and at the art and music colleges.

This means that all state colleges and universities in the Bavaria will not start the summer semester until April 20 - after the Easter holidays.
The universities in Bavaria were asked to ensure that courses affected by the postponement of the start of lectures are made up for. This is intended to ensure that students will be able to complete all courses of study planned for the summer semester 2020 (https://www.stmwk.bayern.de/)The university will therefore endeavour to find a replacement for some of the attendance events affected by the postponement. Numerous lectures and courses are already available online on the Moodle learning platform.

In order to ensure that our students are able to study and have equal opportunities despite the particular challenges of this semester, a statute with temporary special regulations on study and examination law statute with temporary special regulations on study and examination law has been put into effect.
