Welcome to Göttingen - Information for international students
With the beginning of your studies, a new phase of life also begins. You surely have many questions about studying and living in Göttingen. We would like to offer you the following videos and presentations to help facilitate your entry into this new phase of life. You will find information from the International Office of Göttingen University on the organisation of your studies and on orientation in Göttingen, as well as offers from other counselling centres and the academic departments.
For international exchange students of our Faculty, the incoming office of the Faculty of Business and Economics will organize special welcome events. We invite our international exchange students to join our Facebook group "Exchange@wiwiunigoe".
Hybrid winter semester 2020/ 2021
After the fully digitized summer semester 2020, face-to-face teaching will be offered again in the coming winter semester 2020/2021 at the Faculty of Business and Economics in strict compliance with the university's hygiene rules. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, however, this will only be possible to a limited extent, which is why it will be a so-called hybrid semester with a mix of digital teaching and classroom teaching. The lecture period for the winter semester 2020/21 starts on November 02, 2020 and ends on February 12, 2021. The orientation phase is expected to take place between October 26, 2020 and October 31, 2020. The current planning of the teaching is such that about 25 percent of the courses can be offered in attendance. In particular, we will offer face-to-face courses for national and international first-year students in order to facilitate their entry into life and learning at the University of Göttingen and to help them in establishing a circle of friends and a support network. In addition, smaller lectures, seminars and tutorials will be offered to all students in all degree programmes.more…
