Introductory Week for all International Students

Dear international students,

We are all concerned with the spread of the Coronavirus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2). The University of Göttingen would like to do everything possible to minimize risk of infection and to protect the students and those employed by the University from the virus. Therefore, until further notice, all currently planned major events at the University have been cancelled.

We must therefore inform you that the Introductory Week for International Students for Summer Semester 2020 scheduled for 30.03.-03.04.2020 will be cancelled.

Additional information on the Coronavirus and the various measures being taken by the University are available at Please stay informed, paying particular attention to the recommendations for students entering Germany from risk areas.

We are working on pulling together an alternative offering in order to provide you with all of the information you need for a successful start to your studies. We will keep you informed via our website, on Facebook and by email. If you have not yet registered for the introductory event for international students, please send us an email if you are interested in receiving information on the digital alternative option.

We regret the cancellation of our welcome event and wish you safe travels. We will be happy to answer your questions by phone or email.

Sincerely yours,
The International Student Office
