Getting Started

 An "orientation week" is provided for new students in the week before the start of the semester lecture period. During this week an introductory event is offered for each study programme and it is highly recommended that you attend.
Further details can be found in the brochure which is sent along with your letter of admission.
To help you with your first steps in Cottbus and at the university, the International Office provides nice and friendly guidelines:
