The most important dates and offers for the start of your studies

At the University of Kassel, there is no introductory event the . Rather, there is an extensive range of offers from various "organizers":

  • On the one hand, the departments offer an official program. This type of introduction is about the subject: What is the subject about? What specializations are offered in Kassel? Which Professors and subject areas determine the content? So: be sure to attend and ask questions!
  • For some (not all) degree programs and subjects, we recommend taking part in  preliminary courses. Pre-courses are aimed at first-year students who would like to refresh their knowledge in certain subjects. The preliminary courses start before the introductory dates.
  • The student councils often 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, it deals with questions about the course of study, the organization of the curriculum, learning organization and examinations. The student councils therefore offer help on how best to study this subject.
  • There are also"welcome events" at : First semester welcome, offers for students with children, offers for international students.
