Information on teaching in the Fall Semester 2021

A general obligation to wear a mask applies to all indoor areas at UZH. Covid certificates are still required for on-site courses.

In 2021 Fall Semester teaching at UZH is expected to be able to take place in a mostly regular fashion, i.e. without limits on room occupancy and distancing rules if your are vaccinated, have recovered from a Covid-19 infection or have tested negative. The majority of modules at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences will therefore be conducted onsite, although there will still be online options.

  • UZH will cover the testing costs until the end of October for the time being. For more information on the certificate requirement as well as the safety measures of the UZH, please refer to the FAQ of the UZH.
  • If you do not have a certificate, you can participate in the existing online courses. In some cases, courses are also offered on a hybrid basis or you can obtain the course materials on OLAT in order to complete the assessment. 
  • In the course catalog you can find information on the course format.
  • If there are changes in the course format due to the certificate requirements, members of the teaching staff will inform you directly via OLAT. If in doubt, please contact the module coordinator.
