Corona-Info für Studierende

  • Human geneticists at FAU have identified an enzyme deficiency as the trigger for generalised pustular psoriasis, a particularly severe form of psoriasis. The results of the study, which have been published in the American Journal of Human Genetics, could lead to new possibilities for treatment.

  • Researchers at the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at Universitätsklinikum Erlangen have developed a new bouldering psychotherapy approach. Following on from the pilot study, the follow-up study has also shown that bouldering psychotherapy is considerably more effective than physical exercise alone and at least as effective as behavioural therapy.

  • International students face a number of challenges: a new country, a new culture, a new language and then lots of paperwork and different authorities to cope with. With our new welcome packages available at a fee, FAU would like to support international students when they first arrive, letting them concentrate fully on settling in at FAU.
