FAQ Corona-Crisis

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.

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

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.

I am now missing credits to start my master thesis

Lectures for Future

Von: FB 03 - Studienbüro

[Due to technical problems at, this message was delayed. We apologize for this inconvenience.]


Dear MIEPP Students,


I have to apologize; apparently, I was wrong telling you I had only one topic this week (remember exam registration!). In fact, I have quite a bit more stuff for you:


-          Lectures for future

-          Seminar count

-          Internship at BASF


First of all, in the wake of climate change problems and protests, a broad coalition of universities and lecturers has come together in order to replace one regular lecture topic with something regarding the climate change. As this is something concerning each and every one of us, this might be a great way to show your support in regards to fighting climate change and also education yourself along the way. For your information, I have listed all lectures at the JGU so that anyone interested can participate:

Finally, a former MIEPP student (now working at BASF) has brought the following job opening to my attention:


I hope you enjoy the ASTA Sommerfest tomorrow or simply your upcoming weekend and forgive my newsletter spam.
