What is on the schedule?

We will start on the first evening with a social get together in the gardens behind the university's main building, the "SchloGa". Here, you will meet your hosts and organizers.
In the following days, we will give you the opportunity to visit lectures and additionally we are offering a social program. This can be for example a shared meal at the mensa, a city rallye or events in the evening.

For students, who are interested in the master program, we can put together an individual program out of seminars and lectures according to personal preferences.
