Participants are responsible for organising their travel to and from Germany and Rosenheim before and after the programme. Regarding the current Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers advise adequate planning and preparation: travel cancellation insurance and reimbursable airline tickets or public transport tickets. The Federal Foreign Office keeps travellers informed about possible entry restrictions, testing and quarantine regulations in Germany

Participants inform themselves about the necessary permits and processes of transit, including applicable vaccination, testing or quarantine regulations. Participants are also responsible for valid identification documents, checking visa regulations and entry permits and sufficient financial resources for travelling and staying abroad.

Required Corona protection measures and Safety guidelines

The organisers are committed to protecting participants and staff from contracting the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus. All participants must be actively contributing to the protection measures in order to create a safe and healthy learning environment. Participants declare their cooperation and understanding that the situation is constantly evolving due to the dynamics of the pandemic. In any case, the applicable regulations for university operations will apply. These can be found here:

Required vaccinations against the virus

In order to participate in the Master Summer School programme, TH Rosenheim requires full vaccination coverage against COVID-19, and strongly recommends booster vaccinations. Without vaccination, participants may not be able to attend on-campus classes or off-campus events or receive housing in Germany. Participants are required to provide proof of their vaccination throughout the programme, i.e. via EU Digital COVID certificate. Participants must schedule vaccinations early to be considered vaccinated in time to enter Germany and take part in the programme. Participants are responsible to be vaccinated prior to the start of the programme. A list of vaccines recognised in Germany for full protection (also by combination of recovery and vaccination) is offered online by the German federal Paul Ehrlich Institute. The list can be found here: Paul-Ehrlich-Institut - Dossier Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 (pei.de)

Negative test proof

If no recognised proof of recovery or vaccination can be provided (i.e. non-recognised vaccine in Germany), an official PCR test, PoC-PCR test or PoC antigen test may be required at any time. This valid written or electronic negative test as proof of the absence of infection with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus must be updated daily at the costs of the participants.

Supplementary measures such as hygiene and testing protocols, social distancing and mandatory face masks may apply on site. These measures must be followed.

Cancellation policy / Refund policy

The organisers reserve the right to cancel the programme in the event of unforeseen circumstances. In this case, the organisers will refund the paid participation fee to the participant's bank account. Bank transfer charges are at the expense of the participant.

In reasonable cases, participants may also cancel their participation. A cancellation must be made by e-mail before 15 May 2022, so that a refund is possible. A fee for administrative expenses of 50 EUR will be charged and held back from the refund. Bank transfer charges are at the expense of the participant. After 15 May 2022, the participation fee will not be refunded.

The organisers are not accountable for personal expenses already made by the participants, for example for travel.

For the recognition of the rewarded credits and grade of the Summer School programme, participants will consult their academic advisor at their home university to receive credit transfer approval before applying. If accepted to the programme, credit validation and certificate will be provided based on attendance of mandatory contract hours and successful examination.
