The State Secretary for Science and Research and the Berlin universities agreed on the procedure for the upcoming examinations. 
 
For the Berlin University of the Arts this means the following: 
 
All upcoming exams will be cancelled until further notice. They will be offered at a later date.
 
The Berlin universities have also agreed that deadlines for the registration and submission of Bachelor's and Master's theses, dissertations and comparable study and examination papers, as well as doctoral deadlines will be extended by two months. There may be further adjustments to these deadlines if the university is suspended for a longer period of time and the libraries are also closed for longer periods. 

Updates on Visa and Residency permits

18.03.20 • admin_asta • Corona

UdK has been notified by the Landesamt für Einwanderung (LEA, formerly „Ausländerbehörde“) that until further notice, all current statuses are simply remaining intact (i.e. at least until LEA, who like all public offices in Berlin right now are on a skeleton service due to the pandemic-related measures, can resume work). 
 
This also means that exchange students can assume their exchange semester is being extended.
Anyone who intends to leave the country, can also do so with no problem in this regard.
