Study Preparation Course

"The Study Preparation Course is the best way to get to know the university and the city of Augsburg"
(quotation from a course participant)

Do you want to get to know the University and the City of Augsburg? Do you want to prepare for your studies, meet lots of new people and make friends before the beginning of your freshman year?

Then the Study Preparation Courses are the place for you!

Courses and Dates

There are generally two Study preparation Courses:

  • full time course: starts about two to three weeks before the start of the semester and ends the week before the start of the semester

  • compact course: usually on the weekend right before the start of the semester

Target Group

Foreign students who will do their whole degree at Augsburg University.

Maximum number of participants: 25 (at each of the courses)

Course aim

  • How do I register for my courses?
  • What is the Student Counselling Service?
  • How do I borrow a book from the library?
  • What opportunities are there for practising sports alongside my studies?
  • Where can I ... in Augsburg?

These are typical questions new students ask themselves at the start of their studies. Our course helps you answer these questions and, in addition, settle into your new environment and get to know other students in Augsburg.
