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.

The department introduces itself

Welcome to the Institute of Psychology at the University of Kassel!

We are pleased to welcome you as a student.

During the week of October 16, the introduction to the study program will take place. We will give you an overview of the study program, an introduction to the technology and the library and of course the opportunity to get to know us and your fellow students. There we will, for example, help you to dial into the courses, so you do not have to do this yourself beforehand. So it is worthwhile to be there! See you soon!
