Study and Career Counselling Service
Welcome to the University of Oldenburg!
Dear new students of the Winter Semester 2020/2021,
to make sure you get off to a good start you need a whole lot of information. Right now, we're putting together everything you should know and you'll be able to access it here from October. You will find the answers to questions such as:
- What is the semester structure?
- When and where do the student orientation events take place?
- How do I create my timetable?
- What is my degree programme all about?
- How do the university's learning platforms work?
- What is the meaning of all the new terms?
- Where can I get information and advice if I have questions?
In order to access the content of this website starting in October, you need your username and password. International students will learn more about the password during the International Orientation Week.
To ensure a smooth start into your studies, please budget some time between the 1 and 18 October and go through our online information.
There, you will find videos and presentations, as well as live events. The live events will mainly take place between 8 and 16 October 2020. Please check whether events will take place on campus or online. Have a look and note down the dates for the topics you are interested in.
Most Bachelor and Master programmes start on 19 October 2020. Due to the current situation, the Winter Semester 2020/21 is a "hybrid" semester consisting of digital and on-campus formats.
In order to participate in the digital formats, we recommend a laptop or PC with a microphone and camera and possibly a headset, and internet access.
We're looking forward to meeting you in October!
An International Orientation Week is also organised specially for new international students. This gives new international students the chance to take care of important paperwork and formalities and to get to know the University and the city of Oldenburg.
Join our International Orientation Week! 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 regular Orientation Week:
Registering your place of residence with the City of Oldenburg (Bürgerbüro).
Please remember that at present, you first need to get an appointment for ALL visits to the City of Oldenburg.
If you are a student with a disability or chronic illness, there is a wide range of support on offer for students with long-term health issues. You can ask for information about benefits, study organisation, practical help, legal advice and recommendations.
