Introduction and start of studies

The most important dates and offers for the start of studies

At the University of Kassel there is not the an introductory event. Rather, there is an extensive offer of different "Veranstalter:innen":

  • On the one hand, the departments offer an official program. This type of introductory event is about the subject of study: What is this subject thematically about? Which majors are offered in Kassel? Which professors and subject areas determine the content? So: by all means attend and ask questions!
  • For some (not all) courses and subjects we recommend participation 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 introduction dates.
  • Often the student councils also offer introductory courses. 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 studies, the organization of the curriculum, the organization of learning and examinations. The student councils thus offer help with the question of how best to study this subject.
  • In addition, there are "welcome events": First semester welcome, offers for students with children, offers for international students.

Important terms explained

What are preliminary courses?

For some degree programs and subjects, we recommend participation in preliminary courses. Pre-courses are aimed at first-year students who would like to refresh their knowledge in mathematics. There are several pre-courses. The courses last between four and six weeks and take place before the actual start of lectures. For the elementary school teaching profession and the subjects mathematics and physical education, the courses Intensive 4 or Compact 4 are recommended:
