Orientation week

The orientation week for the summer semester 2023 takes place from 3 - 9 April, 2023.

The International Office offers an orientation week for new international students at Fulda University of Applied Sciences, each semester during the week before classes start, to inform about enrolment, campus, health insurance, visa and many other topics.

The info sessions take place online and can be attended even if you're unable to join us in person on campus yet, other activities and advice will be provided by our tutors, who will be available during this week to answer any questions you may have about starting your studies.   The following weekend you can participate in a weekend excursion to our beautiful Rhoen mountains.

Every new beginning has its challenges, but it’s a lot easier when you’re not alone!
