  • Is it possible for students to be compensated for a loss of income caused by the Corona crisis with an emergency loan or grant?
    Yes, it is possible to submit an application for short-term support to the Ernst Siemens Musikstiftung as well as to the Supporters Association of the MHL at any time. In addition, the federal state of Schleswig-Holstein has increased the Studentenwerk’s loan fund for destitute students by 100,000 euros.

  • Are there any additional funding possibilities in Lübeck?
    You can find a good list of different funding possibilities on the website of the Kulturtreibhaus Lübeck. The Nordkirche has also announced an initiative, which will reimburse 50% of the cancellation fees. The costs are to be shared by congregations, church districts and the regional church.

  • Where can I get psychological support?
    Christian v. Streit (ph: 0451-1505 118 / mail) helps in emergency situations as a first counsellor. The psychological counselling service of the Studentenwerk can be reached at 0451-3101 2980 or by mail. Lucia Domke is the contact person.

  • How do I reach the Studentenwerk and especially the BAföG office of Schleswig-Holstein?
    The counselling centres and the BAföG offices are closed to visitors until further notice. Please contact them by phone or mail.

  • How do I reach the social counselling of the Studentenwerk Schleswig-Holstein?
    The social counselling can be reached by phone 0451-3101 2981 or by mail. Stefanie Prüss is the contact person.

  • Is student advisory service still offered?
    Yes, prospective students can contact the Secretariat of Study. Students of the MHL should contact their Head of Studies.

  • How can I reach the Student Representation?
    You can reach the Presidium of the Student Parliament (StuPa) via mail and the General Student Committee (AStA) via mail at all times.

  • What do I have to consider when traveling back to Lübeck from another country?
    Anyone who enters Schleswig-Holstein by land, sea or air having spent the previous two weeks in a risk region must go into domestic quarantine immediately after returning. You can stay at your own home or any other suitable accommodation. To find out whether you are coming back from a risk region, you should consult the homepage of the Robert Koch Institute. The federal state of Schleswig-Holstein has defined a risk area as one in which the number of newly infected persons in relation to the population is more than 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. As a result, the risk areas are constantly changing and domestic areas may also be included. In case of doubt, information on the current situation can be obtained from the Health Department of the Hanseatic City of Lübeck. The same office must also be informed immediately if one enters from a risk area.

  • What do I have to consider when traveling back to Lübeck from another federal state?
    Anyone coming back to Lübeck from another federal state doesn’t need to remain in domestic quarantine. According to the information from the City of Lübeck, you should have your semester ticket (even if it’s not valid anymore) and your certificate of matriculation (download it from the student portal and print it out) on yourself when traveling to Lübeck. In case you’ll be asked for the reason of your travels you should explain that you need to be in Lübeck for practical training and/or exams.

  • What do I have to consider when I enter the buildings of MHL?
    Wearing a face mask, keeping distance and washing your hands is mandatory. Further information can be found in the hygiene guide and the hygiene concept, which university members can download from the MHLnet. However, external persons may only enter the university buildings with an explicit invitation or reservation.

  • When do classes begin and in what form do they take place?
    The summer semester at the MHL began on April 1 with the very first online semester opening (inauguration of the "Virtual MHL"). Teaching currently takes place in various forms (in attendance, digitally or in mixed forms).

  • Can I take lessons at my lecturer’s home?
    No, lessons are in principle not allowed to take place at the homes of lecturers – not even in this exceptional situation!

  • Can I rehearse with my chamber music ensemble or with with piano accompanists?
    Meanwhile, these rehearsals and lessons are again possible with a maximum number of people depending on the room. Reservations can be made at, stating the number of persons and the line-up of players / singers.

  • Are there any alternative forms of teaching to the classroom teaching?
    Yes, different synchronous and asynchronous teaching methods are used within the “Virtual MHL”. According to the constitutional freedom of research and teaching, the choice of the teaching method lies with the respective lecturer.

  • Where can I get helped with technical problems?
    Moodle offers exchange opportunities, instructions and solutions for improving your equipment.

  • How can I sign in for seminars and lectures?
    Please use the student portal for registrations. Short guides and videos in German, Spanish, Russian and Chinese can be found on the MHLnet.

  • Will the lecture period take place normally or will there be an additional lecture period during the summer semester 2020?
    An additional lecture period is being planned for the time between August 17th and October 3rd 2020 to make up for important classroom teaching and exams. The University Board declared the period from August 17th until September 25th an additional lecture period in order to catch up on important classroom teaching and exams. Teaching duties and study obligations according to the study plan and examination regulations are not affected. The time time between terms will be from July 17th until August 16th, although individual lessons can also be made up during this period by mutual agreement. The winter semester 2020/21 will start as scheduled on October 5th 2020.

  • What if I cannot attend classes of the "Virtual MHL" due to the corona crisis?
    If students are not able to continue their studies due to a lack of technical facilities or travel restrictions, there is the possibility of extending studies. In this case, please contact your Head of Studies. The Head of Studies and the University Board will develop and coordinate a procedure for this purpose.

  • Will the virtual lessons be credited to my standard period of study or my entitlement to lessons?
    The University Board does not consider that virtual lessons do equally replace all forms of lessons, especially not the central individual lessons. For this reason, the central issue for crediting will be what proportion of the entitlement can be carried out in attendance and/or made up for by September 30th 2020. Not crediting the semester would have meant that none of the classes currently running could be credited.

  • What exams are taking place in the summer semester?
    Various exams are already taking place online. For the exam period starting in mid-May as well as for the additional lecture period from August 17th until September 25th, exams are planned in attendance but without an audience. As far as possible, necessary preparation for the exams is ensured.

  • How can I request a postponement?
    Requests for postponements of exams must be submitted to the responsible Heads of Studies and justified appropriately.

  • To what period of time will the exams be postponed?
    According to the current planning, the exams will be postponed to the additional lecture period between August 17th and September 25th 2020.

  • Are the predetermined deadlines for papers and final theses still valid?
    Yes, they are still valid. Time limits may (however) be extended in justified cases and upon request (e.g. in case of research problems or if practical work shares cannot be performed, etc.). Such requests must be send to the responsible Head of Studies.

  • Under which conditions can I practice or rehearse at the MHL?
    From June 22nd onwards, practice rooms can again be booked via the app. Practicing in classrooms is also possible again. However, classrooms will not be allocated at the reception as before. These rooms can be reserved daily between 8 and 9 a.m. by telephone at the reception (0451-1505-142).

  • Are there going to be auditions in the summer semester 2020 for the following winter semester 2020/21? auditions have taken place with the exception of the auditions in the subject singing as well as the concert exam. These auditions will take place after the summer break and applicants will be informed personally.

  • What about the lending periods of my borrowed media from the library?
    The lending period of borrowed media ends on July 15th 2020. All lending periods from the previous semester that could be extended have been automatically extended to this date.

  • How do I get access to literature in the meantime?
    The library is open from 10:30 am until 12:30 pm and from 1:30 pm until 3:30 pm from Monday to Friday. You can research, borrow and hand in media without previous registration (limited to 4 persons at the same time). The previous registration procedure has been cancelled. To trace possible chains of infection, attendance will continue to be temporarily documented. To use a computer and working space in the reading room, you still have to register (if possible up to the previous day; for 2 hours, starting from 10:30 am or 1:30 pm; only one user at a time). The delivery to the reception is replaced by the possibility to pick up media at the library. In well-founded exceptional cases, delivery by mail is possible. Copiers and scanners are accessible again. For printing, you need a registration for the computer place. The workstations and the use of the AV equipment remain locked. The library remains inaccessible for external users. Face masks are compulsory in the library rooms.

  • When will there be public events again?
    Big events such as the orchestra and choir concerts, the "MHL-Poprevue" and the opera project "Zauberflöte" have been cancelled. There will be no public events taking place at the MHL until August 16th 2020. The University Board will decides how to proceed thereafter, taking into account the current situation and the respective state regulations. Individual events outside the premises of the MHL are held if possible. Current information can be found here.

  • Is the canteen opened?
    The canteen at the MHL is currently closed. It will probably reopen towards the end of the easing measures.
