Welcome Events for New Students


Dear first-year students,
we are glad that you have chosen us as your place of study. We hope that you will quickly settle in with us and are also very much looking forward to welcoming you personally to the University in the lecture halls and on campus in the coming semester.
Of course, we will keep an eye on the infection situation when planning and implementing teaching in the coming semester (COVID 19 3-level, colour-coded system). Alternative scenarios are being considered and we can already assure you that we are prepared for all situations so that you can continue to complete your studies properly in the coming semester.

The lecture period for the winter semester starts on 24 October 2022 and ends on 10 February 2023.

Welcome Events


Students of the Faculty of Business and Economics organize an introductory week for new students (in German) every semester. This orientation week will take place between 20 and 28 October 2022. It is carried out by students of the WiWi-O-Phase association which are students who have already studied at the Faculty for at least one semester.

For our international (exchange) students, our Incoming Office will organize a welcome meeting on 17 October 2022. It takes place from 9 am - 12 pm in lecture hall ZHG 003. All international exchange students of our faculty, double degree incomings and regular international students are invited.

At this meeting, our Incoming Office will give an introduction to studying at the Faculty of Business and Economics, present the online systems ecampus, FlexNow and Stud.IP and generally provide all the information you need for a successful start in Göttingen. In addition, students will get to know social offers like the Study Buddy Programme and the Exchange@WiWi Programme.

Furthermore, Göttingen International, the International Office of Göttingen University, welcomes all international students to their Welcome Event on 13 October 2022. Beforehand, there will be offered online information sessions, which will be held from 19-23 September 2022. In this sessions you will learn more about your arrival and start in Göttingen: More information

Become a Study Buddy


Our Study Buddy programme wants to promote the exchange between international and German students at the University of Göttingen. When you register as a Study Buddy, you can enter your home country, study programme and personal interests so that suitable tandems between German and international students can be formed. The programme can be set up individually - whether you plan a weekly coffee meeting to catch up, meet irregularly whenever it suits you or communicate online is totally up to you. Meet our local and international students in order to create a great international network! More information
