Every spring, prospective applicants have an opportunity to get to know Leipzig University and receive comprehensive information about studying. We cordially invite you to pay Leipzig University a visit and get a taste of campus life.

Welcome to the 2024 University Information Day

On 4 May 2024, between 10am and 3pm, there will be plenty of opportunities to find out about studying in Leipzig at our Augustusplatz campus. Take inspiration from talks about our degree programmes and ask your individual questions at our advisory sessions. Choosing the right degree programme, applying, living in Leipzig: we will accompany you on your path to university!

Visit our modern campus in the centre of Leipzig: take a look inside our lecture halls and seminar rooms and join a guided tour of the Campus Library or the studio of Leipzig University’s local student radio station, mephisto 97.6. Chat with our students at the student speed dating event for an authentic insight into studying.
