The "Family Welcome Day" is an introductory event for students with child(ren) from all departments of the University of Kassel. On this day, we would like to explain and present to you the various offers regarding the compatibility of family and studies. Among other things, we will address counseling services, support measures in the area of studies and the family-supporting infrastructure (parent-child rooms, diaper-changing facilities, cafeteria services, etc.). Representatives of the Studierendenwerk Kassel (childcare and social counseling), the Family Welcome Services of the University of Kassel and also the hosts of the Autonomous Parents' Department of the AStA will be on site and introduce themselves. Of course there will be enough time for your questions! Children can of course be brought along. We are currently checking whether childcare can be offered in the immediate vicinity.

The department introduces itself

A warm welcome!
We are pleased that you have decided to study at the University of Kassel and especially for a subject from our Department of Social Sciences.
On the study information pages of the University we have compiled the essential information for a good start into your studies.
At the beginning of your studies, orientation days take place in the form of orientation tutorials (in short: "O-Tutorials"). Here you will learn everything you need to know for the start of your bachelor's or teacher training program at the Department 05 - Social Sciences.
The O-Tutorials are led by experienced students from higher semesters. They will accompany you at your start into this new (life) stage!
If there is anything else that is unclear to you, please contact us with your questions.
