Welcome and Orientation

For new international students, the International Office organises a 3 to 5 days Welcome and Orientation Program. Through this program students are helped to settle in, struggle through bureaucracy and get familiar with the town and region they are going to live in.
All important formalities such as registration as a student, registration with the municipality, opening of a bank account and taking out a health insurance contract will be completed jointly. The program also comprises visits and excursions in and around Weingarten.
Last but not least, the welcome program gives students and staff the valuable chance to get to know each other.

Please note that the Welcome Week / Days are very helpful towards a smooth start as an international student at our university and that we are not able to support students arriving later in a similar way. Participation is therefore highly recommended.

The Welcome and Orientation Program for the winter semester takes place three weeks before the lecture period starts. Usually this is in the second week of September. In the remaining two weeks before the beginning of the lecture period, the intensive German language course takes place.

The Welcome and Orientation Program for the summer semester takes place in the first week of March. In the remaining days before the beginning of the lecture period, the intensive German language course takes place.

For detailed programs of the recent and forthcoming Welcome Week / Days, please refer to the download section on the right-hand side of the screen. Find there also our Welcome Brochure with detailed information on studying and living in Weingarten. The brochure is updated twice a year. A print version is handed out to newcomers upon arrival.
