Dear first-year student,

In order to make it easier for you to start your studies at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg in the winter semester 2022/2023, the International Office offers orientation days before the start of the lecture period. There you can find out which steps and formalities you should complete and in what order. We also offer you interesting facts about "Living and studying in Freiberg" and give you tips for a successful start to your studies.

Registration in advance

Please inform us at least 2 weeks before your arrival about your coming so that we can plan and optimally conduct the orientation days. Please fill in the registration form.


Information on Coronavirus/Covid-19 can be found on the Coronavirus website.


At the International Office you will receive the Welcome Folder. This collection of information, which is up-to-date for the semester, deals with all important questions about arriving and studying in Freiberg and also includes handouts and lecture notes from the Orientation Days.

The Welcome Folder is available both in printed form and online on the teaching and learning platform OPAL (Note: A TUBAF user ID is required to download the PDF files in OPAL. New students receive this with their enrolment).
