Coronavirus: FAQ for Students

Dear students,
here you find important questions and answers regarding the current situation and the HNEE's handling of the Corona virus. We make every effort to keep all information up to date. In addition, please inform yourself on the pages of the Ministry of Science, Research and Culture (MWFK) and on our general Corona info page, which contains all important updates.

In the interest of its students, the HNEE is making efforts to implement online formats as a substitute for classroom teaching. If this is the case for one of your courses, you will be informed in time. In general: As soon as the universities make an online course offer available, BAföG recipients in particular are obliged to participate in this online course offer in order to continue to receive the respective BAföG benefits. Valuable information on the first steps towards implementing online teaching is compiled here.

Please note: If you have any questions regarding these FAQs or need further clarification regarding your studies, please do not hesitate to contact the departmental secretariats. If you have any questions regarding your application and admission and student status, please contact the Student Support Service Department & International Office as usual.

CORONA NOTIFICATION: If you have tested positive for the Corona virus or have been classified as a "suspected case", please report this immediately to the Corona crisis team at and to your degree programme management!
