Information regarding the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2)
In light of current official measures to prevent spreading of the Corona-virus SARS-CoV.2, all courses and assemblies in the Faculty of Biology requiring physical attendance are postponed until further notice. Courses with single students, e.g. research courses, bachelor or master projects, may be continued. Practical courses with more than one person will be postponed until further notice. Exams requiring physical attendance are postponed until further notice. New dates for exams will be announced as soon as it is foreseeable when business will return to normal. For individual exams that cannot be postponed (e.g. Staatsexamen, oral defense exams), conditions must be such that examiners and examinees are ensured sufficient space to provide an interpersonal distance of at least 1-2 meters. Review of all exams will be postponed until further notice. We are currently developing a plan to make up for cancelled courses, and will provide this information as soon as possible. Due to the extremely dynamic developments, we are currently unable to give any reliable predictions for summer semester 2020 courses. We will inform you as soon as possible. Current information on the Corona virus can be found at https://www.uni-muenchen.de/aktuelles/corona_informationen/index.html. Please read carefully and adhere to the recommended precautionary measures!
Current information from the LMU on the corona virus (SARS-CoV-2) can be found at:
due to the current regulations of the LMU president the examination office and the study coordination at the Biocenter are closed to the public until further notice. You can contact us via email or phone.
Handing in documents / thesis hardcopies: All documents can be sent via postal mail. The date stamp is being considered as date of submission. Students who are not able to print the documents need to send them as a PDF-document via email to the examination office and the supervisor. Please add all required confirmations as well.
Disputation / master thesis defense: Please clarify with your supervisor if an optional video call for the disputation is possible. Otherwise, the disputation needs to be postponed to the summer term. In this case, it is necessary that you are still enrolled for the summer term. If you are not enrolled yet for the summer term 2020 please pay the necessary re-registration fee promptly so that the enrollment can be extended.
Please contact the examination office via email in urgent cases.
We will try to send all important documents in digital form or via post to your address.
Postponement of thesis deadlines: All theses that are currently registered and need to be interrupted due to closed labs can get extended for this time. Please inform the examination office about the shutdown. After the restart please ask your supervisor to send the examination office a confirmation about the interruption period. This time will be added to the submission date. Please discuss with your supervisor if parts of the thesis can be done as theoretical work.
