Due to the Corona virus crisis and the actions that have been and will be taken all courses announced from the summer term 2020 will be held in some kind of digital format. This holds unless stated otherwise. 

Information on how to proceed for each course will be successively provided in the next few days on the respective website of the courses. For this follow the submenu "Teaching" and then select "Summer term". 

For most courses we will use the OLAT platform and we will ask you to sign up for a course there.
