How to starty your study
The introductory events for first-semester students provide answers to many questions about the start of studies. Shortly before the start of the lecture period, they help you get off to a good start in your studies. There are subject-specific and general introductory events.
All first-year students normally receive the brochure "Auf geht's! Start help for the first semester". You get the the first-semester brochure digitally as a PDF. It is in German language.
How does it actually work with the timetable at university? Do I get one, and if so, where from?
Why do I need a module handbook?
Do credit points correspond to my grades?
Answers to these and other questions can be found here in German language.
You are new in town and have no idea why Augsburg is a World Heritage Site or what the city offers in culture, music, museums, galleries or green corners and destinations for excursions? Here you'll find lots of things worth knowing.
The basic language practice modules for students of some degree programmes require foreign language skills at level B2 (CEFR) in the language studied. All students of these degree programmes are therefore strongly recommended to take the relevant placement tests at the beginning of their studies.
Counselling for students
There are various contact points at Augsburg University for different questions and problems. In addition to the Student Office and the Examination Office, which are responsible for clarifying formal questions, there are many other suitable counselling services for students. You can find an overview here.
