As students who are currently abroad, you are currently in a difficult situation in which Trier UAS would like to provide you with as much support as possible. At the moment you are mostly prevented from returning or isolated; teaching is now discontinued in many countries. Please contact your contact person at the International Office and the respective supervising professors, so that we know how you are and we can establish a contact for further information.
Please check whether it is possible to extend your stay, especially to avoid travel. Traveling to Germany is currently prohibited by the state and federal governments from designated risk areas, and there are also numerous travel restrictions worldwide. The best thing to do on site is to wait until the current situation has relaxed again. Where an extension of the stay is not possible due to organizational or personal reasons, and a return trip is still possible, you should in any case maintain a 14-day domestic quarantine after returning.
We will of course act with the greatest possible goodwill in terms of deadlines. Students who make an Erasmus stay in regions affected by the coronavirus and cancel it receive early Erasmus support, even if the minimum duration is not reached, for the days spent abroad. Regions that are declared risk areas by the respective national authority are also considered to be affected regions, not just the risk areas of the RKI. Due to the exceptional circumstances, shortened or aborted stays abroad can also be recognized as a course achievement.
If you have practical problems abroad (money, accommodation, illness, etc.), you should not hesitate to contact the German diplomatic and consular representations, which can provide assistance to Germans abroad.
Of course, the situation is emotionally very stressful for you. Be assured that we as your home university do everything we can to support you. We wish all of our students abroad that they get through this time as well as possible. Stay healthy!
