Orientation for International First Semester Students
Dear International First Semester Students!
Welcome to Goethe University Frankfurt am Main. For a successful start of your academic career, the team for Academic Success and Integration would like to accompany your first steps at university and invites you to join this semester's orientation program.
Orientation Event on Zoom
This is what the orientation programs offer:
A first introduction to learning and working at a German university (“How are things different here?“).
Finding your way around the university, both regarding location and content (“Where is lecture hall V? What exactly happens in a lecture?“).
First steps to structure your studies and know what is expected from you (“What do examination regulations say? How do I organise my undergraduate studies?“).
An overview of subject-specific introduction sessions and counselling services (“When is the introduction session for sociology and what I can learn in Professor X’s office hours?“).
- Contact with students who are in the same situation (“Shall we go to this seminar together?“) and to services helping international students (“Who is in charge of what?“).
If you have any further questions, contact us:
