We are pleased to welcome you at the Department of Biology in Konstanz. The department and the biology student council would like to give you a helping hand in the beginning.

In the first week of the semester there is the Orientation session for BSc students with essential information about important dates, study regulations and examinations.

The new master's students should join the Orientation session for MSc freshmen, which provides important information about your study program. In addition, there is the compulsory module enrolment meeting where advanced courses are elected. Additionally, a video introducting all advanced courses is available from October.

Before the lecture period begins we recommend the Mathematical Preparatory Course. It takes two weeks and is offered to new Bachelor students in Biology, Physics and Mathematics in all.

Also for the first-year Bachelor and Master students the student council arranges several activities to help you settle in Konstanz and get connected to your fellow students.

Of course, the central facilities of the university are also available for you at any time! If necessary and depending on your concerns, please contact the Student Service Center or the Central Student Advisory Service.
