In light of the spread of the corona virus, the IGC and Hochschule Bremen have taken the following measures to minize potential risks:

  • All on-campus classes are suspended immediately until 19 April 2020
  • During this time, exams will be held under the necessary precautions. Your program coordinator will inform you about the details.
  • All field trips are suspended until further notice.
  • Periods for writing your master’s theses already in progress can be extended in consultation with your program director.


Students will be kept informed by their program coordinators. Lecturers are working on ways to maintain classes online. HSB will react quickly to new developments and will inform students as soon as possible via email and the HSB website. Please check your student email account and the website regularly.

Please follow the hygiene instructions to minimize the risk of an infection. Information can be found on our website, online and on posters on campus. Please be considerate of your fellow students and staff and avoid unnecessary physical contact. The measures to be taken if you are returning from a risk area remain in effect.
