Semester tickets from WS 19/20 will be still accepted

21.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

VBB semester tickets for the winter semester 2019/20, which expire on 31.03.2020, will still be accepted as tickets for the use of public transport. The regulation is valid until 30.04.2020. The condition is that a certificate of enrollment for the summer semester 2020 can be presented at the same time.

For first-year students in summer semester 2020 who have not received or will not receive a VBB semester ticket from the university, we cannot offer a solution at the moment. We assume that in the near future there will be no travel occasions for this group of persons. At most universities there are no more reference lectures and refectories, libraries and other public areas are no longer accessible. Therefore we have to point out that all first-year students* without a valid semester ticket have to buy a ticket at the travel event. A refund for these purchased tickets is not yet provided for, certificates of enrolment are not accepted as replacement tickets.

If VBB-Semestertickets cannot be replaced in case of loss, a ticket must be bought at the occasion of the journey. A reimbursement for these purchased tickets is not intended so far, matriculation certificates alone are not recognized as replacement ticket.

This regulation has been made until 30.04.2020. The situation will be reassessed in mid-April 2020. We will then inform you again.

All upcoming exams will not take place until further notice.

19.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

The State Secretary for Science and Research and the Berlin universities agreed on the procedure for the upcoming examinations. 
For the Berlin University of the Arts this means the following: 
All upcoming exams will be cancelled until further notice. They will be offered at a later date.
The Berlin universities have also agreed that deadlines for the registration and submission of Bachelor's and Master's theses, dissertations and comparable study and examination papers, as well as doctoral deadlines will be extended by two months. There may be further adjustments to these deadlines if the university is suspended for a longer period of time and the libraries are also closed for longer periods. 

Updates on Visa and Residency permits

18.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

UdK has been notified by the Landesamt für Einwanderung (LEA, formerly „Ausländerbehörde“) that until further notice, all current statuses are simply remaining intact (i.e. at least until LEA, who like all public offices in Berlin right now are on a skeleton service due to the pandemic-related measures, can resume work). 
This also means that exchange students can assume their exchange semester is being extended.
Anyone who intends to leave the country, can also do so with no problem in this regard. 

The project funding will be cancelled until further notice

18.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

The project funding will be cancelled until further notice! The measures have been decided due to the corona situation of AStA UdK. We are currently working on a new system for the distribution of funds during the time of the closure of the university. 

Project funding will be offered at a later date.
