For first semester students

Introductory events

Get a good start on your studies by attending orientation events.

Introductory events will mostly take place in the week from October 26 to October 30, 2020. Lectures for the winter semester will officially start on November 2, 2020. All introductory events and further information will be published from August 2020 and will be continually updated.

In addition to centrally-organized welcoming events, all first semester students are offered introductory events organized by subject that will introduce the course structure to you. 

Caution!! Some orientation events as well as block seminars are held even before semester start and some require that you register ahead of time.

The information on these web pages is continually updated. Be sure to check back from time to time for any changes.

Introductions to study programs and helpful hints for starting your studies

You should definitely visit the introductory events for your study program. This is where you find out exactly what is important in your subject and you can get to know your fellow students at the same time.
