Introduction and start of studies

The content on this page was translated automatically.

This course starts in the winter semester.
Dates for the start of the course in October 2024 will be published in August 2024.
Until then, you can get an impression of last year's courses.

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

Dear freshmen,


First of all, welcome to the study program Vocational and Business Education at the University of Kassel.
During the introductory days you will get first insights into the study program and have the opportunity to exchange and network with your new fellow students.


We are looking forward to meeting you!

Wir heißen Sie herzlich willkommen am Institut für Romanistik der Universität Kassel und möchten Ihnen im Namen der Sprachpraxis Spanisch vorab wichtige Informationen zukommen lassen.
Voraussetzung für die Zulassung zum Studium der Hispanistik im Institut für Romanistik der Universität Kassel ist der Nachweis von Kenntnissen der spanischen Sprache auf dem Niveau A2 des Gemeinsamen Europäischen Referenzrahmens (GER).
Um erfolgreich studieren zu können, ist es jedoch wichtig, dass Sie zügig nach Studienbeginn Ihre sprachlichen Fähigkeiten so ausbauen, dass Sie Spanisch problemlos auf dem Niveau B1 anwenden können, sowohl um erfolgreich die einzelnen Module der Sprachpraxis zu absolvieren als auch um an den Veranstaltungen der Fachwissenschaften mitzuarbeiten. Wir unterstützen Sie hierbei durch spezielle Sprachpraxiskurse, die als Propädeutikum bezeichnet und ausschließlich von Muttersprachler:innen geleitet werden. Innerhalb des ersten Wintersemesters erreichen Sie das Niveau B1 mittels einer Kombination von Blockveranstaltungen und regelmäßigen wöchentlichen Sitzungen. Eine genaue Struktur dieses Angebots sehen Sie unten.
Wenn Sie bereits das Niveau B1 nachweisen können, ist es möglich, direkt die Kurse des ersten Moduls der Sprachpraxis zu besuchen. Wenn Sie sogar ein noch höheres Sprachniveau besitzen, dann nehmen Sie bitte an dem unmittelbar vor Semesterbeginn vorgesehenen Einstufungstest teil ( 16.10.2024 /14:00 - 16:00, Kurt-Wolter-Str. 5, Raum 0020), um dann einen passenden Einstieg in die Module der Sprachpraxis zu finden.
