Brickwork on the outside, digital on the inside. Zollhof in Nuremberg has been an ecosystem for digital startups and established companies since 2017. Startups set up by students also benefit. The digital startup centre in Nuremberg is part of the ‘Gründerland Bayern’ initiative of the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy.

The coronavirus pandemic created an entirely new set of challenges for university-level teaching. It required teaching staff to convert their lectures and seminars into digital form within a very short space of time and inform students of new procedures. A special study carried out by the Centre for Higher Education (CHE) shows that FAU overcame these challenges with great success.

The winter term starts Monday, November 2, 2020, with a big digital welcome for all students. At the following virtual WiSo-info-fair, many of the service facilities, institutions, initiatives, and business partners will present themselves. Virtual campus tours, alumni greetings, and a digital party organized by student initiatives bring the day to an good end.
