A successful start to your studies

Even if the university teaches, it is not a school: Due to the professional focus, studying requires the discipline to use a certain domain-specific language and to apply it. In addition, you will be taught by researchers who will give you an insight into topics that you will have to explore and deepen independently. This professionally guided learning process is supervised by the Examination Office, which is responsible for the organization and handling of examinations. Many things at the university are different to most types of schools. This is why there are many institutions and terms you should familiarize yourself with for a successful study. We assist you with the following offers for new students.
