Welcome to Leipzig University! To make sure your studies get off to the right start, our winter semester begins with an induction week for new students. It will kick off with the Central Induction Day on 7 October 2019. This is followed by various events organised by the faculties and institutes.
Central Induction Day
To mark the beginning of the winter semester 2019/2020, the University once again invites all new students to the Central Induction Day on 7 October 2019 and the subsequent induction week.
You will find out everything you need to know about studying here to help you get started: information on your course’s structure, module registration, examinations and important deadlines. You will also learn how best to organise your studies and what you should bear in mind when doing so. Introductory lectures by the University Library and the University Computing Centre offer you an overview of the real-world and online services available to students.
From 9am until 1pm, information desks inside the Neues Augusteum and the lecture hall building on the Augustusplatz campus will be available to answer any questions you may have about commencing your studies at Leipzig University.
Introductory Faculty and Institute Events
Our faculties and institutes also look forward to welcoming you. They offer an extensive programme of events in the days following your official welcome. You will receive important information about your degree course and have the opportunity to get to know your fellow students, the campus and the city.

Help for New Students
Starting a university degree often means jumping in at the deep end. Lots of things are new and unknown. We, the Student Advisory Service, offer a number of services to make things easier for you when you start studying.
On our campuses, students from higher semesters will be available from 9am until 2pm on 8 and 9 October 2019 to answer any questions you may have as a new student.
