Starting your studies in summer semester 2021

Dear beginners!


Due to the current situation of Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) our university is still not able to inform you about the rules of the summer semester 2021.
Maybe we will offer an online or hybrid semester again? We don’t know now. It’s depend on the rules of the German government in near future.
Official start of the summer semester is April 1st 2021.

Orientation days   -   Date not yet determined

We will assist you with all the formalities at the orientation days.
We will be here for you on these days at 10 a.m. in Bernburger Str. 57, room 01/218 and try to help you with health insurance, activation of your bank account, city registration, enrolment at the University, accommodation… Please don’t forget to bring enough money with you for the first couple of weeks (semester contribution, rent, deposit and more …).

Introduction day   -   Date not yet determined
We will provide the ZOOM- link of the online introduction in time.

We start with the study information on April ?? at 10 a.m.  in Bernburger Str. 57, room 01/218.     This day is very important for you!

Beginning of classes   -  Date not yet determined

Our program starts on Wednesday, April ?? and you have to participate all courses to get an overview. On April 26th you have to choose your courses and decide your own study program – it can’t be changed after that!

If you want to start with us, we would like to know the status of your visa-process, arrival in Köthen and your housing situation. Are all things fine? Will you be in time?

Deadline for semester contribution   -   April 9th 2021

If you want to start our program (in presence or online) in summer semester 2021 the semester contribution money needs to arrive at Anhalt University's account by April 9th. This should be done from all incomers, even if you have not arrived in Köthen yet.

Extension for enrolment   -   Not possible

We don’t offer extension for enrolment in the program.
You must register for the summer semester in time if you want to start your education in April 2021 (independent if you are here or want to study online and come later) or you can ask for postpone the admission into winter semester
2021/2022. In this case you don't need to apply through uni-assist again.
But: This procedure is only one time possible. After that you have to apply completely new.

Please make your decision BEFORE your enrolment in summer semester, whether you want to start with your studies in summer semester (1st April 2021) or postpone your admission to next winter semester . It is very difficult to postpone an admission, when you are an enrolled student!

We know due Corona in most of the countries it is difficult to get a visa interview.

Most of our students of last winter semester were in the same situation like you. Nevertheless they started their education in time  - only online. We find solutions!

That means you could start in summer semester online and additional start your visa process. If you have finished up this, you can come and study here at any time.

This is an advantage and you don’t lose so much time. Nobody knows how the pandemic will continue and what activities and rules to expect.

Currently all courses are only online - even for students who are already here.

Information about your situation

Please inform us, about your arriving plans or if it is not possible for you to be here in time. Also, you have to inform the "Studentenwerk" about it (if you signed a contract for accommodation!) and our International Office.


In Germany, April 2nd, 5th and May 1st , 13th and 23rd  are public holidays! No open shops, no office times, special train schedules!
