Questions and answers: information for prospective students

The information on this page refers only to the special circumstances of the current application year. If you have general questions, please refer to General Student Counselling’s FAQ page.

Can I use General Student Counselling despite the current situation?

General Student Counselling remains open for students. The office can be contacted by phone, e-mail or video chat.

As an alternative, on-site counselling (alone or accompanied by another person) is also possible by prior arrangement and with a fixed appointment.

Will the University Information Day be held in person?

Yes. After two years of an online-only programme, we are pleased to finally welcome you back to beautiful University Square in the centre of the city on 2 April 2022 from 10 am to 3 pm (access based on the 3G model).

Central institutions will be on the square to introduce themselves to you and you can meet the student conselling team “at the lions”. Inside the Löwengebäude, as well as in the building opposite, the Melanchthonianum, the various institutes will present their study programmes at individual stands. Talks on central topics will be offered in the lecture hall.

How can I find out about the current courses on offer, also remotely?

Our course offerings    are always online. In addition to course content, the course descriptions also contain the admission restrictions (NC or no restrictions) and admission requirements. The new annual study guide Studieren in Halle [Studying in Halle] is available online.

Have a look at    or follow university life on our social media channels.

Will any of the application deadlines for winter semester 2022/2023 be postponed due to Corona?

No, the usual deadlines will (once again) apply. Information can be found on the detailed study programme webpages   .

Is instruction currently taking place in person or online?

A decision about what will happen at the start of the semester in October 2022 will most likely not be made until September. However, summer semester 2022 will definitely start in person - at full capacity following hygiene guidelines that will vary according to the situation. Detailed information can be found “next door” in the Corona FAQs for students.

What happens if I have started a master’s programme (or if I am willing to do so) but am still unable to submit my bachelor’s certificate? How much time do I still have to do this?

The normal submission deadlines have been extended. You can find details in the adjacent FAQs for students. However, starting in summer semester 2022, we will return to the normal deadlines for this as well.

I come from abroad and am interested in studying in Halle. What do I currently need to take into consideration?

International travel restrictions as well as the war in Ukraine are prompting more and more “international” questions. General Student Counselling provides information about opportunities for studying in Halle. For advice in English, please contact Claudia Polkau directly.

Prospective students with foreign certificates/degrees can find the current regulations and a point of contact for application questions here.

The International Office advises international students (especially exchange students) on its own webpage.

My question is not included here - what should I do?
