There are a number of ways to take a closer look at our university before you begin your studies. The annual open day in January is an opportunity for prospective students to take part in selected courses at our faculties and institutes. In May, we invite school pupils, prospective students, parents and teachers to come and find out about the wide range of courses on offer at Leipzig University.

Open day – 14 January 2021

Taster programme for prospective students – experience everyday life at university

Use this day to attend selected lectures and seminars of the current semester. This lets you experience your desired degree programme up close; chat with students and lecturers and find out whether the field of study really meets your expectations.

At the institutes, in the refectory, and on guided tours of libraries and laboratories, we give you the chance to learn more about what everyday life is like at Leipzig. Stop by the university radio station and the Faculty of Medicine’s training centre to get a feel for the practical orientation of studying at our university.

We do not issue a certificate of attendance, because pupils of Saxon grammar schools in years 11 and 12 are not usually required to attend school on this day anyway.
