(ONLY FOR ERASMUS+ AND OTHER EXCHANGE STUDENTS)
The "Orientation Weeks" take place generally before lecture start in fall term (at the beginning of September) and in spring term (middle of February).
Together with all incoming students who just arrived many activities are planned during the "Orientation Weeks", e.g. welcome breakfast/welcome reception, introduction to the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer and surrounding areas, city-rallye in Emden, a guided city tour, excursions (for example to the city of Hamburg) and trips through the pubs of Emden. Furthermore the International Office offers "German intensive language courses" (beginner and advanced levels) during the "Orientation Weeks" (as well as a "Bridging Course English" - the application runs separately!).
In the fall term 2023/24 the orientation weeks are scheduled from 7th September - 15th September 2023. The preliminary program can be found here.
