!! Information on current situation (Update September 16, 2020) !!

Important additional news for international applicants: see below

Dear current and future students,

because of the current situation, we have to cancel our open consultation hours and telephone service until further notice.
You can send your requests to our e-mail address .
Please note that delays may occur.
We ask you not to send multiple e-mails concerning the same topic to us or other FAU institutions.

Update August 10, 2020: All institutions of FAU’s administration are still closed. Do not try to enrol in person!
Please note also that the copies of your documents must be notarized for the enrolment!

Update May 25, 2020: Instead of the usual Master Welcome Event for Summer 2020, there was an online Zoom meeting.
For the presentation and further information, please visit this link.

Please also check the following website: (for English version, click the button in the upper right corner).

Update September 16, 2020: The lectures for the Winter Semester 2020/21 will start on November 2, 2020.
All courses will be offered online (mostly exclusively) until further notice,
even if the lecture entries in the UnivIS system specify a lecture hall.
Please read the information on the courses in UnivIS carefully!
Please visit also our page about the welcome events.

To all international students (prospective and accepted, update August 18, 2020):

We do not recommend to come to Germany at the moment!
If you have to go to quarantine, we cannot assist you!
The Winter Semester 2020/21 can be studied online, the enrolment must be done by post. For the exams, it is not sure yet whether they can be held online. In case you have to come to Germany for the exams, you can use the “Confirmation of obligation to attend university in person in the winter semester 2020/21”, that comes with your admission letter, for applying for the visa.

Please note that we cannot update this page with all new regulations coming up at the moment; have a look at, which is maintained by FAU’s central administration, instead.

We are sorry for the inconveniences.

Best regards.

Felix Schmutterer and Tino Haderlein
