In­tro­duct­ory events

Things to know about the introductory events

There is no single introductory event. Rather, there is an extensive offer from different "organizers".

  • On the one hand, the departments offer an official program. This type of introduction is about the subject of study: What is the subject thematically about? Which majors are offered in Kassel? Which professors and subject areas determine the content? So: be sure to attend and ask questions!
  • Often, the student councils also offer introductory events. The student council is part of the student self-organization and deals with the specific questions of the students of a department. In terms of content, they deal with questions about the course of studies, the organization of the curriculum, the organization of learning, and exams. The student councils thus offer help with the question of how best to study the subject.
  • In addition, there are "welcome events": First Semester Welcome, offers for students with children, offers for international students.

We publish the specific dates of the introductory events on these pages about 2-3 months before the actual start of studies.
