Information about the beginning of your studies

You decided to continue your study at our faculty. We look forward to meeting you and would like to offer you some advance information to make your first weeks at our university a little easier.

The orientation week for Bachelor's and Master's students is mainly offered digitally. The digital offers are partly synchronous (via zoom) and partly asynchronous. All courses of the winter semester 2020/21 are also offered digitally. There are NO classroom courses!


Introduction week events of bachelor's courses in Business Administration and Economics (as mono-bachelor's degree or combined bachelor's degree)

A week before lecture time we hold an ‘Induction week’ (see event dates in German).

Due to the current corona situation, the welcome and information event of the faculty cannot be offered in presence as planned, but will be digital and synchronised via zoom. There are two alternative dates for which registration is possible via a Moodle course (see above schedule).

There will also be a mathematics induction course (digital). The content of this induction course is a prerequisite for the regular mathematics lectures held in the first semester.
