Welcome Week for new international students

Every autumn, just before the beginning of the new winter semester, the International Centre hosts a Welcome Week for the newly enrolled students of Leipzig University.

This year, it takes place from September 30 to October 4. New students will have the chance to get to know Leipzig and to learn about student life. Student tutors are present to help with formalities and answer any initial questions concerning courses. In addition, there will be a variety of cultural events planned for the freshers. Discover Leipzig on our sightseeing tour, see the University Library, or tour the campus. You will also have the opportunity to get insights into the local Krystall Palast Varieté and to visit DHL, the Sternburg brewery, the local radio station centre, etc. Details are given in the Welcome Week’s

Programme

Sign up for an activity in the Neues Seminargebäude, 4th floor (during enrolment hours) or via our Facebook group for new international students.

Don’t miss the Welcoming Party on October 4 at 21:30 in the VZL Veranstaltungszentrum/Städtisches Kaufhaus, Neumarkt 9.

Come join us, meet with your fellow students, and enjoy your new home. There is a lot to do and see—so, we’ll see you there!

If you are an exchange student attending the language and orientation course prior to the semester start, you usually enrol before the Welcome Week. But of course you are very welcome to take part in the Welcome Week’s party.
