Since 1 July 2021, we have resumed teaching in the first step in a hybrid form – a combination of face-to-face days and online classes.
The hybrid study model includes two types of online lectures:
We will stream all face-to-face lectures live, meaning that students can attend either way. Our students will switch between face-to-face lectures and live broadcasts to keep lecture groups as small as possible and comply with physical distancing and other hygiene rules.
The second online teaching option will be provided as interactive Zoom sessions. This form is generally used for teaching by external lecturers and members of risk groups. This keeps lecturers travel to a minimum and protects us all. Your face-to-face and online learning combination depend on your study programme, the choice of courses, and your health and travel situation.
The hybrid study model ensures that direct exchange between students and teachers is maintained, and there is still room for discussion and interaction during the lectures. You can use digital breakout rooms for workshop formats and group work and spaces on campus - this, however, is subject to general hygiene regulations. Guest speakers from the business world will be ‘patched in’ to the online lectures. Using the chat function, you can ask questions, stimulate discussions, and be in direct exchange with experienced practitioners.
In other words, the full spectrum of teaching is still being provided. Books required for project work or final examinations are available from our libraries’ online database or on-campus, complying with the general hygiene regulations. Examinations will be taken at our locations, naturally in compliance with current hygiene and safety measures. In exceptional cases, it is possible to examine digital form as agreed with the examinations office.
To protect you and the entire EBS community, please present a negative Corona test result upon entering campus (this does not apply to vaccinated and recovered persons). Please take the test through trained staff at an official test centre. You can find Corona citizen testing centres nearby you here. Self-conducted self-tests are not sufficient for detection. The negative test result must not be older than 48 hours.
