    Current information and guidelines

    Here you will find supplemantary and concretized information of the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy with respect to the general guidelines and information provided by the University Board

    For Students in Physics

    • All teaching in attendance form in physics are discontinued until further notice as of March, 11th.
    • The summer semester 2020 starts on April 20, 2020 and will be extended by two weeks until August 7, 2020. All courses (seminars, lectures, exercises) end on July 24, 2020. The two-week extension is intended specifically for laboratory courses.
    • The lecture period in the winter semester 2020/2021 will be postponed compared to the previous planning due to the high school examinations that were carried out later than usual due to the Covid 19 pandemic. The Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg is planning a shortened lecture period for the coming winter semester from November 2, 2020 to February 12, 2021. This does not apply to the higher semesters in the medical, dentistry and pharmacy courses, which will conduct their lectures from October 12, 2020 to February 5, 2021 due to subsequent state examination exams. The required ordinance is expected to be passed by the state by July 31, 2020.
    • Whether there will be virtual substitutes for classes in physics or whether they will be cancelled will be displayed in the details of the courses in WueStudy in a unified way (especially look at the additional information)
    • Information in WueStudy will be successively added during the next days. An overview can be found on the web page on digital teaching in SS 2020.
    • The summer semester 2020 does not start as face-to-face teaching in classrooms, but continues digitally until further notice. All information can be found in WUEStudy, including also the links to the WUECampus course rooms.
    • An overview of all e-learning offers for the face-to-face courses has been set up. This can be found on the website  https://go.uniwue.de/lehredigital-physik.
    • You can find an overview of the lecturers' office hours on the website https://go.uniwue.de/lehredigital-physik.
    • Enrollment in classes in WueStudy is to be used as usual. Deadline for classes in the summer term will generally be Tuesday, April 21th, 2020. Students who want to enroll in a class do this as usual and set their priorities for groups fitting to their own schedule. They will be granted access to the corresponding WueCampus courses. 
    • Without an registration in WueStudy at the given deadlines, no exercise participation is possible.
    • Schedules for lectures, exercise groups, and seminars will be maintained in order to ensure a collision-free sequence of the yet to be created virtual classes.

    • All exams in physics (including oral exams) scheduled for winter term 2019/20 are postponed. When and how the postponed exams will be given can be derived from the website https://go.uniwue.de/fristen.
    • The second exams for WS 2019/20 will not take place as planned and will be made up in June 2020. The rescheduling takes place in coordination with all MINT faculties in order to avoid differences, please see the website https://go.uniwue.de/fristen.
    • The first exams for SS 2020 have not been postponed and will take place as already scheduled.
    • The written and practical exams for the 1st state exam for a teaching post in public schools are suspended indefinitely.
    • The inspection of written examinations is possible, if the relevant rules of conduct and hygiene are observed as they also apply to attendance examinations. Exam results will be booked in WueStudy after marking.
    • The currently open exam registration deadlines will continue to run as normal while maintaining the registration period. Students who wish to take an examination should register as usual. The registration for an examination will be valid for the postponed examination.
    • Take special care of notifications for future deadlines for signing up for exams. The rule still stands that there will be no examinations without prior timely registration in WueStudy.
    • Ongoing final theses (bachelor and master thesis, schriftliche Hausarbeit in the teaching degree courses) should be continued with the supervisor's support using e-mail, telephone, video conferencing if necessary, but not in personal meetings. When carrying out experimental work in the laboratory, the safety distances and RKI hygiene rules must be observed. A written assignment is to be send by mail to the respective supervisor.
    • For Bachelor and Master theses the examination offices has modified the rules for handing it in, and also the deadlines have been extended. Since the webpage of the examination office is only available in German language, we recommend international students to contact their thesis supervisor to clarify with him or her, how the new regulations affect them.
    • The SS 2020 willnot be counted in the standard period time of studies, BAföG calculation, etc. The faculty will respond with great flexibility in the event of students problems..
