Workshop "Starting your studies"
Image: Matthias Friel

You have been admitted to the University of Potsdam, have completed your enrollment or transferred to another degree program and are now waiting for the semester to start. You probably have a lot of questions about how to proceed, how to plan your weekly schedule or how to sign up for a course. We don’t want you to be alone with your questions until the semester actually starts in November 2020. In addition to our Student Telephone Hotline, our student peer advisors also provide additional offers for a better orientation on campus and during your studies. You can of course also contact the Central Student Advisory Service.

The workshops for planning your studies and assembling your schedule are tailored to students in bachelor’s and master’s degree programs.

Planning Your Studies & Assembling a Schedule

You are at the beginning of your studies and wondering how you can best plan the next semester? The workshops below focus on questions around medium and long-term study planning, such as:

  • How many semesters are scheduled for individual modules or parts of your studies?
  • How long is the standard time to completion?
  • Does the program include mandatory internships or study abroad?
  • Which credits or academic credentials have to be achieved in which semester, and how many credit points have to be achieved in which module?
  • Are internships and / or excursions to be completed during either the semester or the semester break?
  • Which regular leisure activities would you like to pursue? 

In a next step, you will create a schedule for your semester.

Studying with Children

Do you already have a child or children? Are you pregnant? Are you planning on starting a family during your studies? If so, then you probably have many questions about studying with children at the University of Potsdam.

In order for you to be well-prepared for the start of your studies, our student advisor will be offering the "Studying with Children" event. This event is an exchange of information and experiences among students of the University of Potsdam. All your questions on contacts, spaces for families, toy rental and much more will be answered here. In addition, you can already get to know fellow students who are in a similar situation.

You are welcome to bring your children to the event, of course, if you do not have other childcare options available to you.

Please register for your preferred date using the provided e-mail address!
