Freshers Week 2017

In the week preceeding term start (11th – 13th October) we hold a welcome week for the new students in the master programs FuK and PACS.

Most of the programme will be for both FuK/P&C and PACS students and thus will be (mostly) in English. However, on Wednesday and Friday we’ll have specific introductory sessions for FuK and PACS students. The other group is invited to sleep a bit longer.
