International Students' Orientation Weeks

International Students' Orientation Weeks

Designed to help you settle in quickly in Passau and into your studies at the University, our Orientation Weeks are a great opportunity to make friends in a new place. Attendance is compulsory for exchange students (e.g. ERASMUS and other mobility programmes), and all other international students starting out are strongly encouraged to attend the Orientation Weeks.

The Orientation Weeks for winter term 2018/2019 will run from 19 September to 14 October 2018 and will feature a welcome reception, excursions to different destinations all over Germany and various events organised by the AEGEE student society. More Information regarding the activities of AEGEE are included in the orientation week programme. There will also be student helpers on hand to help with your formalities.

Please find detailed information about the orientation weeks in the uploaded files below (the programme includes a number of formal and informal activities, such as a tour of the University campus, a sightseeing tour of Passau, outings, short trips and of course, parties):
