summer semester 2020 update


We are currently in the process of adapting our courses to a digital format. We are also working on an online registration process for our courses; however,logistical problems must first be solved.


More information will be announced on our website as soon as we know the logistics of the registration process and which courses can be offered in a digital format. The website will be reguarily updated with the current status.

Given the current situation, the announced course registration period and the start of our courses will most likely take place later than previously announced. We are trying to implement a digital solution as soon as possible.

We hope you are all well!

We supported the TVStud initiative in 2018

Between 2001 and 2018, the wages of student employees in Berlin’s tertiary education system stagnated. Beginning in 2016, they sought negotiations with the institutions and also struck for their demands. In summer 2018 the institutions gave in. The SKB supported the student employees’ initiative.
