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 informations about important dates,  study regulations and examinations.

The new master's students should join the Orientation session for MSc freshmen, which gives you important informations about your studies, and the compulsory module enrolment meeting.

Furthermore everybody is cordially invited to attend the Peter-Hemmerich-lecture which is followed by a mentoring session for Bachelor freshmen. (Peter Hemmerich was one of the first natural scientists in the founding of the University of Konstanz. He was very engaged professionally and socially as well.)

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.
