The CAU will not count the winter semester 2021/22 as an actual semester (“Fachsemester”). An additional attempt at the examination will be granted if the type of examination has been replaced by another type of exam that was not provided for in the degree-specific examination regulations.

Changes to the 3G proof checks at the CAU

Those who are being treated with TNF alpha blockers for a chronic inflammatory disease probably need a booster vaccination against SARS-CoV-2 earlier than others. A study by the Cluster of Excellence "Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation" indicates this.

The University Board has now updated the CAU’s hygiene policy. The changes mainly affect the regulations from the amended Infection Protection Act and the SARS-CoV-2 Occupational Health and Safety Regulation, this entails the obligation to work from home and 3G proof at the workplace.

Validity of negative lateral flow tests, Obligation to wear face masks, 3G in libraries, Non-curricular or non-teaching events

The CAU is again setting up an e-mail list for vaccination offers e.g. from CAU's medical service.

As of today, you will find latest updates on the Corona website about the requirements for all employees to proof their 3G status; they will come into effect on November 24.

The federate state government of Schleswig-Holstein has decided not to tighten the regulations currently in place. This means that Kiel University will continue to operate in teaching, studying, conducting research, offering administration and services as before.
