What is the Welcome Day?

The conditions of study at the University of Freiburg will be entirely new for you. In addition, you will be studying in an unfamiliar environment. In order to prepare you for your studies and your life in Freiburg, the International Office organizes an introduction day with a lot of information from different areas of student life in Freiburg. If you are unable to attend on that day or you would like to review the information, you can find some videos here on the website. We strongly recommend that you attend the Welcome Day or alternatively watch all the videos. We are sure that the many different items on the agenda will contribute positively to your study success and make it easier for you to settle in Freiburg.

Welcome Day for all international students

This year‘s Welcome-Day will take place on the 7th of October, 2022 in hybrid form. From 10:00 a.m. to 01:00 p.m., there will be an introduction to studying online on Zoom and from 05:00 p.m., there will be a live program for you in the Mensa Rempartstraße. This will give you the opportunity to make new contacts if you are already in Freiburg and still get important information about studying in Freiburg if you are not here yet. Both events will provide a helpful introduction to life in Freiburg and studying at the university to make your start in Freiburg as easy as possible.

More questions? Live video conference!

Were all your questions about studying and living in Freiburg answered in the videos? If not, the staff of the International Office will be happy to answer your questions in a live video conference. You can send your questions before the video conference to  or you can ask them during the video conference.
