Studies - New students
Welcome to the Faculty of Arts!
This web page is dedicated to new international students of the Faculty of Arts.
As a student of the Faculty, you can contact the Faculty's Student Services at any point in your studies if you have study-related questions. Each department and/or subject at the Faculty of Arts has at least one person who is responsible for counselling international students e.g. in questions concerning study rights, course choices or registration to their courses.
Student Services of the University provides information to all university students about student discounts, study grants, international exchange programmes, open university studies etc. They can also issue you a certificate of attendance or an official transcript.
Check out also the University's website for new students. You can find the Orientation Handbook for the academic year 2014 - 2015 online here. You will receive a hard copy during the orientation week.
You can also find the Faculty's Student Services on Facebook!
