Advice on self-tests for university students

A prerequisite for participation in face-to-face courses is that non-immunized students test themselves regularly, at least twice a week, for COVID-19 and provide proof that the test is negative. This proof can be provided, for example, by an affidavit (see Appendix 1).  

Students who are already immunized (vaccinated/genetically screened) are exempt from the testing requirement.

Arrangements have been made below to provide free self-tests until initially 11/15-21. The exact details for the distribution of the self-tests are still being coordinated and will be announced in a timely manner via the faculties or the relevant examination office/study office.

Persons who show typical symptoms of a disease with COVID-19 according to the current criteria of the Robert Koch Institute may only participate in attendance events including examinations if they can present a negative PCR test or POC test (rapid test) that is not older than 48 hours.

(Regulations according to the University Corona Regulation M-V).

  1. Distribution of self-tests for the presence teaching
  2. Declaration of Oath that an antigen self-test for the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus with a negative test result was carried out in accordance to the University of Rostock
  3. Declaration for issuing free antigen self tests





Guideline for the realization of lectures, which require separate laboratory and special rooms
Guideline for the realization of lectures, which require separate laboratory and special rooms

This guideline covers courses which cannot be replaced by digital versions and which can be postponed to a period in which it is possible to resume full attendance. Examples of this are mainly final theses in the experimental MINT subjects, such as BSc and Master theses in the natural and engineering sciences. Internships with a larger number of participants should be postponed to a later date, possibly with a reduction in the scope, if the contact restrictions are relaxed.
