Important information regarding the winter semester 2020/21


In the face of the Coronavirus health crisis that is being experienced worldwide and as a measure to ensure the well-being of all students, the Faculty of Medicine at Cologne University has decided to cancel the international student mobility (incoming and outgoing) also for the coming winter term 2020/21 (01 October 2020 - 31 March 2021).

That means in detail:

International INCOMING STUDENTS coming to Medical Faculty Cologne

  • The Faculty of Medicine will NOT ACCEPT INCOMING EXCHANGE STUDENTS FOR THE WINTER TERM (October 2020 to March 2021). 
  • All clinical rotations at the Faculty of Medicine are CANCELLED FOR THE WINTER TERM (starting September 2020 to March 2021).
  • Students who were already nominated for the coming winter term are not automatically postponed and accepted for the summer term. They have to be officially nominated again by your university as exchange students for the summer term 2021 (01 April 2021 - 30 September 2021; Nomination deadline: 01 December 2020)

We thank all students and partner universities for understanding and accepting this decision. We hope that in the future the situation worldwide will improve in order to be able to continue the academic collaboration with our distinguished partners.
