If you are experiencing issues with planning your move to Germany due to Coronavirus restrictions and need to complete the entirety of your first Semester online due to this, we will be sending out further information about how to arrange this soon. We look forward to welcoming you to our college facilities to continue your studies in person when travel or health circumstances allow.
