Important notice on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic in Germany - summer semester 2021


In the light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic 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 also for the coming summer term 2021 (01 April 2021 - 30 September 2021).

That means in detail:

  • The Faculty of Medicine will NOT ACCEPT INCOMING EXCHANGE STUDENTS FOR THE SUMMER TERM (April 2021 to September 2021). 
  • All clinical rotations at the Faculty of Medicine are CANCELLED FOR THE SUMMER TERM (April 2021 to September 2021).
  • Students who were already nominated for the coming summer term are not automatically postponed and accepted for the winter term 2021/22. They have to be officially nominated again by their home university as exchange students for the winter term 2021 (01 October 2021 - 31 March 2022; Nomination deadline: 01 June 2021)

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 resume the academic collaboration with our distinguished partners.

Kind regards and stay safe
