Dr. Hanne Birk

NEWS: As you may know, I am currently commuting from
Switzerland, but the WiSe 2018/2019 will be my last at the university
of Bonn.
As I am leaving early in spring 2019, I would be very
grateful if you could hand in any term papers by 01/03/2019 -
but if it is not possible, I will remain
'prüfungsberechtigt' at least for a while, which means I am allowed to read and
correct texts handed in by 31/03/2019. 

But please note:
Extensions are hardly possible and I will not be able to
accept texts in coming semesters- I am very sorry.
Please note the new Anmeldefristen:
