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 August 6, 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!

To all international students (prospective and accepted, update August 6, 2020):

We do not recommend to come to Germany at the moment!
You will very likely have to go to quarantine.
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
