The Orientation Days for new international students in English language start on 5 October and end on 12 October 2018.


During the Orientation Days the International Office will provide you with lots of information about studying and living in Freiberg/Germany. Most importantly you will receive information about the formalities after the arrival. Other important topics are for example important dates of the academic year, services for international students as well as an introduction to the specifics of German culture.
