Starting your Studies


Great to have you on board with us!

Every start into studying at a university is individual–a new chapter in life that’s exciting, opening up myriad new opportunities in parallel. Embarking on your studies marks a new chapter in your life that will differ in many aspects from your usual ways of living and working. We want to help you get ready for the changeover to your studies in a good and systematic way and make sure you independently co-shape your start into your studies.
