Starting Your Studies

Welcome to the university!

You're entering a new and exciting phase of your life, and Goethe University and the city of Frankfurt are just the right place for you.

You may find the university confusing at first, but you'll soon discover that it's not as complicated as it seems. Feel free to take some detours, which will help you to learn more about the university and quickly navigate your way through the unfamiliar terrain.

These pages are designed to assist you in taking your first steps at the university. You will also find a contact person at Studium Lehre Internationales (SLI) who can answer any questions you may have about studying here.

We wish you a good start to your first semester!
