    Warming-Up Event for New Students

    The Warming-Up event is a two-day orientation event for all first semester bachelor’s students (both German and international). The goal of this event is to familiarize you with the different aspects of university life before you start your studies. You will learn some important basic study skills, get to know other first semester students, and get advice from upper-semester students about how to get off to a good and relaxing start.

    The Warming-Up event this semester will take place on TWO mornings. This is an IN-PERSON event for bachelor’s students. There will also be a fun afternoon program that gives you the opportunity to get to know other first semester students as well as upper-semester students. These afternoon events will each take place on separate days. See our program below.

    New master’s students, exchange students and bachelor’s students who can’t make it to the morning workshops are warmly welcome to take part in the afternoon program – just remember to register.
