Even though a travel warning against unnecessary trips abroad is still in force (exception: countries of the EU, Schengen-associated countries and Great Britain), it is possible to travel to many countries for study purposes. Since the pandemic will still affect teaching at many universities worldwide in the 20/21 winter semester, it is imperative that you inform yourself individually about the conditions that will prevail in the target country and at the target university in good time before planning and starting a stay abroad for study purposes. As the situation can change, please make sure to note the relevant current recommendations and travel warnings from the Federal Foreign Office before starting your trip: www.auswaertiges-amt.de/de/ReiseUndSicherheit/10.2.8Reisewarnungen (in German).

We are happy to again welcome international students to Trier University of Applied Sciences in the winter semester 2020/21. The winter semester is expected to take place as a hybrid semester consisting of on-site and virtual teaching, so please plan to come to Germany to take up your studies. Lectures are scheduled to start on Monday, September 28, 2020. International students can currently return to Germany from many countries to attend on-site events at Trier University of Applied Sciences. Entry for study purposes is generally considered a sufficient reason for entry. In particular, entry from the countries of the EU, the Schengen-associated countries and Great Britain is again generally possible. Since the situation can change, please note the relevant current recommendations and travel warnings from the Federal Foreign Office regarding the entry requirements: www.auswaertiges-amt.de/de/ReiseUndSicherheit/10.2.8Reisewarnungen (in German).

What effect does the corona crisis have on residence regulations for international students?
Due to the Corona crisis, international students are currently affected by travel and residence restrictions in addition to financial and social burdens. To ease the situation, the Federal Ministry of the Interior has now given new recommendations to the immigration authorities. International students can expect the regulations that are normally applicable to be relaxed when extending residence permits, searching employment opportunities to secure their livelihood, and in cases of short-term mobility.
