COVID 19

Our goal is to resume its suspended on-campus activities to the greatest extent possible as soon as is prudent. We are developing guidelines for a phased resumption of research, instruction, and other activities during the coming months and into the fall in a manner that puts the health and safety of our community at the forefront and is consistent with the Federal authority plan to recovery and normalcy.
The German Diploma Courses in November- December 2020 is as per planned schedule. However the travel restrictions and border entries from Federal authorities is applicable from time to time. Please check with your local travel agent, Airlines and Consulate of Germany for any entry restrictions at the time of VISA application.
