FAQs Practicing and Teaching

In keeping with the distancing and hygiene rules, practising is currently only possible for students to practise individually. Should you realise that your ASIMUT account is blocked for room booking, please send an e-mail and add your current mobile number to ueben(at)hfm-berlin.de.

Most students and instructors are already actively using EislerCloud, which is accessible with an HfM email address. All important information is available in the following folders:

  • “Infos Eisler eCampus“: Information on tools, technical instructions and tips for digital instruction
  • “Corona-Maßnahmen“: Information on current measures and regulations (e.g. access to the practice rooms in the Marstall building)
  • “Gremien an der HFM“: Documents of the Academic Senate

FAQs Organising studies

The State of Berlin has regulated the accreditation process of the 2020 summer semester and 20|21 winter semester in favour of the students. Students who are enrolled in the 2020 summer semester and/or 20|21 winter semester and have not taken a leave of absence will benefit from an extended individual “Regelstudienzeit”. This, however, does not apply for students who had already reached the upper limit of semesters of “Regelstudienzeit” at the end of the 2019/2020 winter semester. 

Students now have two extra semesters to catch up on lessons and attend cancelled classes, and to take examinations which were cancelled due to the pandemic. Therefore, the maximum period for which BAföG financial aid is available has also been extended by two semesters. For bachelor’s degree courses, that means 8+2=10 semesters; for master’s degree courses, it means 4+2=6 semesters, and for concert degrees 4+2=6 semesters. Therefore, the semesters continue to be counted, and additional semesters are “added” in the end.

To protect against the spread of the coronavirus, no personal consultation hours are taking place at the Study Advice Office, Enrolment and Examination Office and International Office. You can contact us under studium(at)adm.hfm-berlin.de.
