Entering Germany and Travelling to Rosenheim / Visa Regulations / COVID-19
The organisers ask international participants to keep themselves informed about entry requirements at an early stage and on an ongoing basis. Participants are advised to check the Visa regulations by the Federal Foreign Office. If necessary, the invitation letter may be used to apply for a visa to enter Schengen area or Germany.
Participants are responsible for organising their travel to and from Germany and Rosenheim before and after the programme. In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the organisers advise adequate planning and preparation: travel cancellation insurance and reimbursable airline tickets or public transport tickets. Participants inform themselves about necessary entry permits and processes of transit, including applicable vaccination, testing or quarantine regulations. The Federal Foreign Office keeps travellers informed about possible entry restrictions, testing and quarantine regulations in Germany.
Participants are also responsible for valid identification documents, checking visa and customs regulations and proof of sufficient financial resources for travelling and staying abroad.
Recommended Corona Protection Measures and Safety Guidelines
The organisers are committed to protecting participants and staff from contracting Covid-19. All participants contribute to the protection measures in order to create a safe and healthy learning environment. Participants declare their 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.
The organisers strongly recommend full vaccination protection and a booster vaccination against COVID-19. If necessary, participants must schedule their vaccinations to be considered vaccinated in time to enter Germany prior to the start of the programme. Without vaccination, participants may not be able to attend on-campus classes or off-campus events or receive accommodation in Germany (due to the respective provisions at the time of the programme). Participants may be required to provide proof of their vaccination throughout the programme, e.g. via an EU Digital COVID certificate. A list of vaccines recognised in Germany for full protection (also by combination of recovery and vaccination) is offered online by German federal Paul Ehrlich Institute: 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 may 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.
For the recognition of the rewarded credits of the 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, active participation and successful examination. Details are outlined in the course description. Class contents and programme schedule are subject to change.
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. After cancellation, the organisers are not accountable for personal expenses already made by the participants, e.g. for travel.
In reasonable cases, participants may also cancel their participation. A cancellation must be made by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org before 7 June 2023, 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 7 June 2023, the participation fee will not be refunded in any case.

For some parts of the social activities, basic catering will be provided for the participants. Participants are responsible for their personal expenses for meals, groceries and everyday life during the programme. Participants take care for financial provision for their stay in Germany during the programme.
