Orientation Programme

Our orientation programme for new international students takes place at the beginning of each semester before lectures start and lasts several weeks. In the summer semester we start at the beginning of March, and in the winter semester we start in mid-September.

We strongly recommend that our students take part in the orientation programme. In the first days of your stay with us the programme will enable you to deal with important formalities necessary for your studies and your stay. Additonally, it provides you the opportunity to get to know other international students as well as German students.
