Subject-specific introductory events

One of the most important parts of the Orientation Week for all new students is the introductory meeting of your individual subject. Here, you will find out about the structure and content of your study program as well as subject-specific regulations. You will also get to know the most important contact persons, and you will receive help with finding the right classes for your course plan and with fitting them into your schedule.

If you are enrolled in multiple subjects, please try to attend all relevant introductory meetings.


In the winter semester 2021, many orientation events will take place on campus again. Some events will still be in an online format though, and study programs may also offer pre-produced digital documents and materials. With this combination of different formats, we are looking to support you as well as possible in getting a good start into your studies.

You can find details about all subject-specific orientation offers on this overview page (in German).

(A small number of study programs will publish information about their events later on, presumably in the first week of October.)

Registration for lectures and classes

You can normally still register for your first-semester classes after the respective subject-specific introductory event. However, a few lectures and tutorials may have earlier registration deadlines, or there may be a delay so that you only receive your personal access code for the Alma Portal after the deadline has already passed. If something like this happens to you, please contact your faculty course advisor, who will help you in finding an individual solution.

Important notice:
Please register for courses using only the student login credentials sent to you via regular mail. (Any registrations made with Alma login credentials from the application phase will be deleted by the end of October.)
