The October 2023 programme of events will be published shortly
The programme of events for the upcoming orientation weeks is being worked on. The web pages will be updated progressively in the week of 18 September 2023. We anticipate that most of the details will be published by 22 September.
Until then, you can find information about the previous orientation weeks on these pages, so you can get a sense of the sort of events that are usually part of orientation weeks at the University of Passau.
This service is specifically targeted at international students – which is what the 'iStudi' stands for – and helps you with all your questions regarding studies, career orientation and everyday life in Passau. The iStudi-Pass programme helps you to prepare for entering the job market in Passau and Germany.

If you want to attend language classes in English, French, Spanish and Italian, and if you already have prior knowledge of that language, then you have to take part in the C-Test (online placement tests) for your chosen language. The test result determines the level of study you will be signed up for. Aside from English, all of the languages are available at beginners' levels in Passau.
If you want to start afresh with a language you should simply choose level ‘Grundstufe 1’ (Foundation 1); in that case you do not need to sit a C-Test.
You can find all information about Future: Careers and Competencies (ZKK) and its seminars, IT courses, career orientation events and the online careers portal on the ZKK’s website.
