The 2019 enrolment ceremony (Feierliche Immatrikulation), which will take place from 3pm on 16 October, is Leipzig University’s way of welcoming newly enrolled students and introducing them to academic life. Afterwards, Rector Professor Beate A. Schücking invites all new students to enjoy a free glass of beer at the Moritzbastei, Europe’s largest student club.
