In order to minimize the Spread of the Corona virus, experts call for "social distancing". Nonetheless, basic legal exam requirements are valid and unchanged. The following references explain our measures and should answer some often-raised questions. All temporary adjustments are due to the Corona virus outbreak and will be reverted, once the situation calms.

In addition, after this date it might be possible to receive extra extensions, please contact us at MIEPP@uni.mainz.de, decisions will be made on an individual basis.
How can I hand in my master thesis?
Starting March 18, 2020 your MIEPP master thesis can be handed in electronically until further notice. In order to hand in your master thesis, send an e-mail from your students account to email@example.com.
The thesis has to be in PDF format. Furthermore, the statutory declaration has to still be signed personally. Thus, you can either scan or photograph (has to be readable) the signed statutory declaration and add it to the e-mail. The statutory declaration and the thesis have to be attached to the same e-mail.
The hand-in date is the date the e-mail is received. Once you sent the email, the hand-in is complete. There is no way you can change your thesis anymore (i.e. if you find a mistake after handing it in, you cannot send a new version on the same day).
The registrar’s office will not ask for further printed versions.
Hand in your master thesis via post. The post stamp counts as the hand in date. Please always check the requirements yourself (i.e. number of copies, binding, statutory declaration etc.)
I deregistered my exam after March 12, 2020. Is it possible to still participate in the retake exam?
Yes. Taking advantage of the short-term opportunity to deregister exams will not lead to any disadvantages.

Changes to Guidelines regarding Illness due to the Corona Virus
Von: FB 03 - Studienbüro
Dear MIEPP Students,
As the situation surrounding the corona virus gets more and more complicated, the registrar’s office has decided to change some of the guidelines regarding illness for the upcoming exams. I have attached the original German version to this email. I have also created an English translation, which is attached to this email as well.
The most important thing in there is the official source of information from the JGU regarding the virus and university measures. Information can be found here and will be updated regularly. If something big happens, I will of course inform you personally but if you have any questions or are wondering how things are, this is the place to get your information.
If you are taking an exam in the coming weeks, please have a look at the appended guidelines regarding illness. If not, stay safe, relax and enjoy your holiday as well as possible.
