Lectures in Winter Semester Scheduled to Commence on 12 October

Lecture period for all degree programmes taught at LUH in winter semester 2020/2021 commences on 12 October

On 20 April, the lecture period for summer semester 2020 started later than scheduled - with a comprehensive range of online courses. This measure was implemented in compliance with the recommendations of the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony. However, the lecture period ends on 25 July, as scheduled.

Therefore, lectures in winter semester 2020/2021 will not be postponed. Courses in all degree programmes taught at LUH will commence on 12 October 2020. The decision to postpone the start of the semester until the beginning of November reported in the German news only concerns places for first-semester students or specific degree programmes allocated by the admissions foundation "Stiftung für Hochschulzulassung". However, LUH is not affected by this.

In light of the current requirements and measures regarding hygiene, the majority of lectures in the winter semester is expected to take place online. University management would like to thank all members of teaching staff for their outstanding commitment in preparing and implementing online courses, as well as all students for embracing this new form of learning.
