Arrival and Orientation
Exchange students are recommended to arrive in the week before the lecture period begins.
In this week preceding the official semester start some introductory and welcome events will be organised for new international students, the attendance of some of which are mandatory.
The schedule will be released some weeks before the semester to all accepted exchange students.
Check-In at the International Office
All Erasmus exchange students are required to officially “check in” at the International Office, so we can issue a Certificate of Enrolment for you and hand you your new student ID (Campus Card).
You will be required to submit the Certificate of Enrolment at your home university for your Erasmus grant.
Please note that regardless of the date of your actual arrival in Augsburg, the earliest date that we can confirm for your Erasmus start is the first official welcome event.
