Welcome to the University of Passau! The orientation weeks for international students take place at the University of Passau before the beginning of each semester. This year the international orientation weeks for the winter semester 2020/21 took place from 12 October until 1 November and combined a mixture of virtual and on-site events. In addition to some events on campus, videos, online events and (virtual) office hours were used to help you prepare for a successful semester at the University of Passau.
The information presented on the start page as well as the sub-pages and the programme contain information about the orientation weeks for international students held at the beginning of the winter semester 2020/21 and serve as an example of a typical course of the orientation weeks. A new programme will be published shortly before the beginning of the next international orientation weeks of the summer semester 2021, which will take place from 20 March 2021 until 11 April 2021.
