Course Schedule and Orientation Events
Studying in Germany requires self-reliance and motivation. Students arrange their own course schedules with the assistance of the Course Catalogue. You can find some video tutorials for using SB@Home here.
Introductory Orientation Events and Bridge Courses
Interdisciplinary Introductory Orientation Events
We advice all first-year students to visit our First Steps Event at the beginning of each term. You can get important information about studying in Würzburg at the events. The First Steps Day for degree students will take place on October, 11 at 3 p.m. Soon there will be provided further information regarding our First Steps event here.
In addition to that, we would like to recommend that you visit the orientation event of the Academic Advicing Center.

The Orientation Events usually take place during the first semester week. It is very important to attend these courses because they provide all important information about schedules, exams etc.
