Fachsemesterzählung: will this semester count regularly?

The summer semester 2020, the winter semester 2020/21 and the summer semester 2021 will be counted as regular semester of studies.
However, for students who have not been able to take all scheduled courses and examinations since the summer semester 2020, this does not have a negative effect on compliance with the standard period of study.
Legal certainty is provided by §126a BerlHG, which will also apply to the winter semester 20/21 and the summer semester 2021 with the ordinance on the individual standard period of study due to the Covid 19 pandemic dated December 11, 2020 and May 04, 2021:
for students who studied in the standard period of study in summer term  20 or in winter term 20/21 or also in summer term 2021 and were not on leave of absence, an extension of the standard period of study by one semester each applies.
However, when making use of this, please bear in mind that this means that more and more students will be at our school, which will in consequence  severely restrict workshop use and student workrooms in the future, even under normal conditions.
If you require an extension of the standard period of study, please write to Leoni Adams: international@kh-berlin.de
