During the first weeks of both summer and winter semesters, new students in the bachelor's and master's programmes including students who have transferred to the University of Göttingen will be assigned tutors for the orientation week held by the Faculty of Economic Sciences. The orientation week is geared to provide students with information on studies, selecting appropriate courses, learning about examination regulations, and covering other information on everything the University of Göttingen and the city have to offer to students.
These events aim to prepare you for your studies as well as introduce you to campus life and the city of Göttingen. During the introduction week, there will be many informational events, a library tour and a chance to speak with lecturers.
As part of the orientation week, the city rally and first semester party are great opportunities to get to meet other students.
This orientation week is originally designed for German-speaking students. For international students there are special introduction days organised by the University's International Student Services. Please click here for more information.
