Directly after graduating from high school or after an apprenticeship or a year abroad, you usually start a course of study that leads to a first academic degree. This can be a bachelor's degree, a teaching degree with a state examination or an artistic degree with an artistic diploma.
In the case of a bachelor's degree, one then has the option of further qualification with a master's degree. Bachelor and Master belong together as a "study system".

In order to be able to study, you first need a graduation certificate with the authorization to study at a university(university entrance qualification): General university entrance qualification, subject-linked university entrance qualification, university of applied sciences entrance qualification, master craftsman's examination or comparable qualification (studying without Abitur).

For a successful start to your studies, we will familiarize you with three important terms: Matriculation Number, UniAccount and CampusCard.
This is your personal identification number. It is printed on your student ID card (=CampusCard) and is required, for example, for exam registrations or certificates.
The UniAccount is your user ID for the various online services of the university, e.g. the WLAN, and is linked to a university e-mail address. After activation, all communication from the university goes through this e-mail address. Please activate your UniAccount promptly.
We will send your CampusCard to the address stored in eCampus. It is an important part of your everyday study life at the University of Kassel. It is used as a student ID and semester ticket, as a library card, as an electronic purse for paying in the cafeteria and as a cultural ticket.
