Welcome Week & Buddy-Program

To make it easier for you to start your studies, the International Office organises welcome weeks for all international students every semester. There is also the opportunity to take part in the Buddy Programme.

Welcome week for incoming (Erasmus) students

Before the start of the semester, the International Office organises a welcome week for new incoming students who are completing their Erasmus exchange semester here to get to know the environment and German culture and to make contacts.

It is therefore recommended that you arrive around one to two weeks before the start of the semester in order to be able to take part in all events.

The International Office organises excursions to interesting destinations such as Neuschwanstein Castle, the Bavarian capital Munich and much more.

Buddy programmes

The Buddy Programme offers you the perfect opportunity for a smooth start in Landshut and at the university. A full-time student will accompany you during your first steps as well as during your studies and provide you with important information, e.g. when registering at the citizens' office, exploring the campus and city and opening a bank account.
