Furthermore everybody is cordially invited to attend the Peter-Hemmerich-lecture which is followed by a mentoring session for Bachelor freshmen.

Even before the lectures start, we recommend the two-week Mathematical Preparatory Course, , which is offered jointly for new biology, physics and mathematics students in the Bachelor's degree. It refreshes your knowledge from school, fills any gaps and introduces you to university-level mathematics. You also get to know your new fellow students.

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.
