Teaching, examination and event organisation

Classes are always held in presence and in compliance with the following protective measures:

  • The prerequisite for participation in face-to-face teaching is compliance with the 3G rule as well as hygiene measures and rules of conduct.
  • For face-to-face teaching, students and teachers are generally required to wear FFP2-masks. In case of artistic necessity, the masks may be removed during the artistic activity. Teachers may remove their masks during demonstrations/performances.
  • Lessons are permitted up to the maximum permitted room occupancy (however, a maximum of 4 singers).
  • For the study programmes of the Faculty of Performing Arts and MAE, whose curricula are associated with activities with higher transmission risks, lessons are generally permitted up to the maximum permitted room occupancy with students of one year (however, a maximum of 4 singers). For other classes in these programmes, protection concepts will be worked out by the programme directors with the COVID 19 task force.
  • FFP2-masks are compulsory for all theory lessons. They are to be held in presence (in suitable rooms) with up to 15 participants; if this number is exceeded in individual lessons, distance teaching is to be offered in consultation with the Vice-Rector for Science and Research.
  •  In the case of wind instruments, singing and speech lessons, it is recommended to use additional partition walls in the lessons (partition walls are available in the rooms or from the porters) and a minimum distance of 2.5 metres applies.
  • Documentation of attendance is compulsory and must be complete. Attendance lists must be kept by the course instructors for each course unit. These must be kept for at least 28 days and made available at all times.
  • External lecturers for master classes/workshops are only permitted in consultation with the head of the degree programme. External persons as lecturers must be made aware of the Corona protection measures of the MUK by the study programme.
  • Distance teaching is only permitted with the prior approval of the responsible programme director and the dean of the respective faculty or the vice rector.
  • Board examinations are carried out in accordance with the requirements of the respective programme management and in compliance with specific protection concepts. Students will be informed separately by the head of the degree programme.
  • Projects and individual lessons that are associated with activities with higher transmission risks (e.g. close contacts, larger groups in rooms) require specific protection concepts that are developed by the programme directors in cooperation with the COVID 19 task force of the MUK. The specific protection concepts are communicated by the programme directors and the COVID 19 officer of the MUK in the respective programmes.
  • Events are permitted without exception with specific protection concepts, which study programme directors must draw up in cooperation with event management and the Corona Task Force.
