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.
The lecture period for the summer semester starts on 11 April and ends on 14 July 2023.
Incoming Office of the Faculty of Business and Economics
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 from 4 to 14 April 2023. 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 organizes a welcome meeting on 5 April 2023 from 10:00 to 13:00 in room Oeconomicum (OEC) 0.169. It is followed by the Campus and City Tour from 14:00 and our first Exchange@WiWi roundtable ("Stammtisch") event in the evening at 20:00.
At this meeting, our Incoming Office usually gives 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 3 April 2023. You can download the programme schedule here.
Beforehand, there will be offered online information sessions (the "Pre-Arrival Online Introductory Week"), which will be held from 6-10 March 2023. 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
