Additional note: Start of the 2020 summer semester

Note from the University Board and the Dean's Offices of Kiel University

Dear students,

in addition to our mail of 26.03. for the start of the summer semester 2020 we would like to send you further organizational information.

At the moment, all those involved in teaching are working intensively to provide alternative courses that take into account the specifics of the subject and faculty. The faculties will inform you about all necessary details via the usual channels (e.g. OpenOLAT, UnivIS, stu-Mail). The faculties will provide additional information on their websites. Please inform yourself on these websites about the further procedure in your study programmes!

The majority of faculties will create groups for the respective modules/courses on the OpenOLAT learning platform. If your faculty (e.g. via the website) informs you that OpenOlat is being used, please note the following information when you register this week. Although the learning platform OpenOLAT is designed for large numbers of students, please register this week in the following time slots in order to ensure that the registration process is as smooth as possible:

Thursday, 2.4.: Students of

  • Faculty of Arts and Humanities
  • Faculty of Agricultural and Nutritional Sciences
  • Faculty of Theology
  • Faculty of Law

Friday, 3.4.: Students of

  • Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences
  • Faculty of Business, Economics and Social Sciences
  • Faculty of Engineering
  • Faculty of Medicine

If you notice signs of system overload (e.g. long response times) when you log in, please log out of OpenOLAT and try again later.  Depending on your login behaviour, we may communicate further time slots for the initial course registration in the coming week.

We thank you in advance for your understanding! We are aware that this will mean an increased organizational effort for you. However, we can assure you that all parties involved are working with the utmost commitment to find solutions for the implementation of study programmes in all faculties.

With kind regards
The University Board and the Dean's Offices of the CAU
