Starting your studies in fall 2020

Questions? Find your answer here

The upcoming semester will start as scheduled in October/November 2020
The exact starting date of the lectures will vary between the programs (please find exact start dates below). Because of the many visa delays and travel restrictions that you face, we will start the semester completely online and are planning to resume on-campus teaching in January 2021. But even if visa processes are further delayed, this will not bring any disadvantage for you.

Digital teaching formats will continue as an addition to the curriculum and you can switch to an on-campus mode at any time. Please note that the Master in Aeronautical Management offers attendance class only.

This is how your online enrollment works. Please read carefully and follow all steps:

  • Transfer your down payment in order to save your place of study. Please check your e-mail account to get detailed information on your bank transfer.

Coming to Germany?

We are living in times of great uncertainty and we fully understand that you and your families are unsure if it is the right time to start a new educational journey in Germany.

Germany managed the pandemic much better than many countries basically because of its strong health care system, early progress on detection and an effective containment strategy. We cannot predict future developments, but we will do everything to keep students safe and make sure that you experience the high-quality education you expect.

As the worldwide Corona situation is changing almost every day, please refer to the information of the Federal Ministry of Health, which countries are currently designated as international risks areas, as well as the regulations which apply when entering Germany.

List of countries classified as risk areas. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have further or very specific questions. 


Health insurance

Compulsory health insurance for students is a major issue in Germany. So we are very happy to inform you that you do not need a German health insurance if you study online from home during the first weeks or months. 
The German government and the statutory health insurance companies have decided to suspend the existing regulation for the online phase. 
Only after your entry to Germany you have to take out a health insurance for your studies. You will receive support and help from your ISA-team in choosing and applying for the right health insurance. For your entry to Germany you need a simple travel insurance, depending on the requirements of the respective embassy.
