Entry regulations

Our International Orientation Week offers the opportunity to get to know the university and the city of Oldenburg and to meet other students. Moreover, it gives you the chance to take care of important formalities (such as enrolment, registration with the city, CampusCard).

International Orientation takes place in the week prior to the beginning of lectures. Every winter semester, our International Orientation Week is followed by the regular Orientation Week for all new students.
