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, web conference or Skype.

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

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 2021/2022 be postponed due to corona?

Yes, there will be some minor shifts in the usual deadlines (> updated overview). The information has been updated on the pages of the individual degree programmes    (German or English, depending on the primary language of instruction).

Has it been decided whether classes will take place in person or online in winter semester 2021/22?

Winter semester 2021/2022 will start in person – at full capacity and with the already established time slots as well as the hygiene guidelines that will vary depending on the situation (for details see 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?

Due to the current situation, the normal deadlines for submitting bachelor‘s certificates have been extended, as described here.

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

Due to global travel restrictions, there has been a rise in “international” questions. General Student Counselling provides information about study opportunities in Halle. To speak with an advisor in English, please contact Claudia Polkau.
