Study orientation programmes – be a successful student

Whether you complete your studies sucessfully depends mainly on you, but not just on you. Studying in a foreign country can be difficult at the beginning. In order to help you find your way in our university and so you get the support you need, we have different programmes to help you feel at home in Hamburg and be a successful student:

weBuddy programme

Starting in a new country can be difficult. Everything is new and often complicated. With the weBuddy programme our international freshmen can ask to have a "buddy". These experienced students help you with your questions and support you in the first weeks of the semester. |more...|

International Welcome Week

As part of the weBuddy programme the International Office offers an International Welcome Week which is part fun and games, part information session and part welcome dinner. It is a great way to get to know new people and the city. |more...| 

Orientation Week (OE)

At the start of the semester there is an orientation week for freshmen organised by the departments where you will be studying. It is called OE and is organised by experienced students. They will show you round the university, your new department and give you an overview of study plans, libraries, cafeterias, etc. |Here are the OE dates|

TSE study orientation tutorials

How do I organise my Bachelor's programme? How do I put together a study plan? How do I prepare for exams? The TSE tutorials are led by experienced students, so you will learn how to organise your studies and get off to a good start. |more...|
