Nevertheless, we would like to draw your attention to the existing regulations of the Ruhr-Universität and ask you to inform yourself about the current Corona situation and the regulations concerning your studies on the central pages of the RUB.

At the end of each semester, we evaluate all lectures of the faculty. The results are then discussed with students with the aim of continuously improving our teaching. You can find more information on the overview page.
