Orientation Resources

Online Orientation Resources Winter Semester 2020/21

With these resources, we hope to offer all newly arrived international students a jump start into the new semester, which will be shaped by online formats. In the following presentations, you'll find contact persons and offers specifically tailored to international students. We wish you a successful time in Berlin!

Please note that the first day of the lecture period, 2 November 2020, is a Dies Academicus. This means that regular courses will not take place on this day!
