If you have any questions about your individual study programs, please contact your department directly. For current information on campus, please click here.


This is what the orientation programs offer:

  • A first introduction to learning and working at the Goethe University?

  • 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?“).
