Current information (18 March 2020) - especially for incoming exchange students
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the the constantly changing situation, the Ministry of Education has decided to postpone the start of the spring semester to 20 April. Public events as well as further education and training events will not be held until the start of the lectures.
However, since we cannot guarantee that the semester will begin on 20 April, THM has decided to suspend all incoming exchange mobilities for the 2020 spring semester. We will uphold all 2020 spring semester nominations for either the 2020 autumn semester or the 2021 spring semester.

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.
