Studying in the time of Corona

To ensure that MPMD students enjoy the full learning experience at all times during their studies at HTW Berlin , classes are held on-Campus, online or as a mix of both, as the Corona situation demands. A smooth switch between formats is possible - and has successfully taken place - from one day to the next: We and our students are getting really good at this ;)

To ensure maximum safety for our students and staff, on-campus classes are taught to split classes to allow for ample space between students and to comply with distancing rules. A comprehensive hygiene concept is in place at HTW Berlin.
