Important information regarding SARS-CoV-2 (coranavirus) for exchange and international students
Up-to date information 18.03.2020 (especially for incoming exchange students)
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the the dynamically changing situation the ministry of education has decided to postpone the start of spring semester to April 20th. Public events as well as further education and training events will not take place until the start of the lectures.
However, we cannot guarantee a semester start on April 20th. Therefore, THM decided to suspend all incoming exchange mobilities for the spring semester 2020. We offer to sustain all spring term 2020 nominations for either fall/autumn semester 2020/21 or springsemester 2021.
Information of THM about corona from March 4th
International Student Admissions: Due to current events, there will be no consultation hours until further notice.

as you may know from the media, new cases of infections with the so-called SARS-CoV-2 (coronavirus) have occurred in Germany, including here in the district of Giessen. Unfortunately, members of the THM are also affected; however, according to present knowledge, they have had no contact whatsoever with the THM's premises or its staff.
For this reason, we would like to give you some important information and rules of conduct.
The coronavirus is a viral infectious disease that primarily affects the respiratory tract and causes flu-like symptoms such as fever and cough. The virus is transmitted from person to person, but can also survive for a few days on inanimate objects, such as door handles.
In this context, we would like to point out the current recommendations for protection against infectious diseases such as influenza or an infection with the coronavirus. The THM has published hygiene rules for this purpose, which can be found here.
If you should have symptoms such as cough, fever or cold symptoms, please do not come to the THM, but contact your attending general practitioner by telephone. The district of Giessen has also set up a hotline for Corona, which can be reached at +49 (0)641/93901400. The hotline is for people who have a justified suspicion that they may have fallen ill with the coronavirus, e.g. because they have stayed in a risk area or fear potential contact with infected persons.
If you have a pre-existing illness, where a possible infection with the coronavirus could put you at a higher risk and make the progression of your illness more serious, we ask, if you do not necessarily have to go to the THM, to please stay at home and consult your family doctor about your personal risks.
We are monitoring current developments and will keep you informed about further measures. Extensive up-to-date information can also be found at the Robert Koch Institute: https://www.rki.de/ncov .
We ask for your understanding for these measures, which serve to protect you as best as possible.
Your Presiding Committee THM
THM will also be offering its Orientation Days for exchange students next semester, an event that helps them become acquainted with student life in Giessen
If you want to attend, we would recommend that you arrive in Giessen the day before it starts so that you can make sure that you can attend everything planned.
The programme for the Orientation Days next semester will be posted on this page soon.
