Information and Advice

Introductory sessions

Introductory sessions for individual subjects take place prior to the beginning of the semester and sometimes even during the first days of the lecture period. These sessions will cover information about your programme of study, which classes you should take in the first semester. They will help you to familiarise yourself with your university and its facilities as well as give you the chance to get to know  the staff and your fellow students. Please do not miss these sessions!

You will learn the dates and current changes during the orientation programme “Startklar,” from the “Studentenkanzlei”, or from the International Office.


Most of the faculties have their own homepage, where you generally can find  information about the lectures offered, about the teaching staff, or about the  study and examination regulations.

General Student Advisory Service

ForumIf you have questions concerning major combinations, degree programmes, etc., please refer to the “Allgemeine Studienberatung” (General Student Advisory Service). This office can also provide you with study and examination regulations for each course of study.

Course guidance for individual subjects (by professors)

Please do not hesitate to contact the advisors if you have in-depth questions about your course of study.

“Studentische Fachschaften”

The so-called “Fachschaften” are groups of students from a specific course of  study who meet to discuss the organization of their subject area. They also  organise events and guest lectures.
