Hygiene rules

  • In buildings it is highly recommended to wear a medical mask or FFP2 mask at every time, also during the presentations in the lecture halls.
  • We may introduce stronger hygiene rules, if the current pandemic situation represents a risk to great for the event.

During the Introduction Week (also called Orientation Week), the new students (freshmen or “Erstis” in German) receive an introduction to the subject and the Department of Physics from the view of students. The Introduction Week always takes place one week before the lectures start (often the first week of October). We recommend all freshmen with physics as a subject (even as a minor) to attend this introduction.

The Introduction Week 2022 will take place from 04.10. to 07.10.2022 .

In the following, we would like to provide you with some important information in advance. We will upload our information magazine for freshmen in physics – the Ersti-Φbel – as well as the slides to all talks given by members of the Student Council to the internal area after the Introduction Week.

Due to the situation with Corona we don't know yet if the Introduction Week can take place entirely in physical presence. If it is possible the program will be as shown below. But if there should be any changes to the programm we will inform you here.

Current information

  • The Introduction Week 2022 will take place from 04.10. to 07.10.2022 .
  • Many questions have already been answered in our FAQ section. Don’t hesitate to drop by :-)
  • Registration for lectures is not required (yet). You will get all relevant information during the Introduction Week; you will not have to take care of anything in advance. (Note for double bachelor’s (2FB): This could of course be different for your other subject or in the subject “education”, but considering physics, you don’t need to worry.) Exception: You want to take psychology as a minor subject. If you have any questions about this, it’s probably best to contact us.
