Welcome Week

In the week before classes begin, both the International Office and the schools hold various orientation sessions that provide you with important information for your stay and for organizing your class schedule. You should definitely attend these meetings! These events are also a great opportunity to meet fellow students. In order to take part in all of the events offered, we expect you to arrive in Mannheim at least one week before lectures start!
