Introductory events for new students

Brochure "Essentials for the start of studies"

Every year, the General Student Advisory Service compiles up-to-date information (not only) for first-year students in a brochure. You can find a digital version of this brochure here.

Welcoming the freshmen

In the first week of lectures of the winter semester, there is the "Begrüßun der Erstsemester" (Freshers' Welcome) - a large, official event with a stage programme and information stands on the start of studies. The President of the UdK Berlin opens this event and welcomes the new students. You can get more information by Email on your UdK-Account.

Introductory events

At the beginning of the semester, the faculties offer introductory events in the individual degree programmes, sometimes even introductory days. Lecturers as well as students from higher semesters inform you here about everything you need to know for a successful start to your studies, and you have the opportunity to get to know each other better.
In addition, there are introductory days at the University Library.

The dates are announced before the start of the semester here on the website, n the course catalogue and/or on a notice board in the buildings of your degree programme.
