How the Hertie School is supporting our community during the pandemic

Keeping our community safe is our highest priority. As we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic together, the Hertie School has adopted a flexible approach – in our teaching, in our on-site activities and in the way we support our students with their learning, student life and well-being.

We are pleased that our intention is to welcome students back on campus for the 2021/22 Academic Year. Our hygiene rules and measures for daily operations are continually updated to reflect changing guidelines and regulations by local health authorities.

Together, we all share the responsibility for keeping our community safe and healthy. Stay up-to-date by reviewing the FAQs regularly and by reading update emails sent by our Management.

Your safety comes first - and Student Life is here to help. Reach out to Student Life for answers to all your questions. If you test positive for COVID-19, please contact Student Life via phone or email. We will then take all necessary steps in cooperation with you and with the Berlin Health Authorities. Get help with visas, residence permits, COVID-19 regulations, health insurance, housing and more. 

How will courses be taught? Our teaching plan for Fall 2021 reflects our commitment to provide an engaging and dynamic education for all our students, regardless of the restrictions and challenges posed by the pandemic. Our curricular offerings include a variety of teaching modes. Many of our courses will be taught onsite, but there will also be an online and hybrid offering. You will find everything you need to know about your classes, and the technology that may be involved to support them, on Moodle. Please reach out to our Curricular Affairs Team with any questions you may have!
