Start of studies

Welcome dear new students!

We are pleased that you have decided to study at our university and would like to welcome you to Viadrina.

During the annual introductory week in October, you will receive the roadmap for your studies and all relevant information about the start of your studies. The introductory week will probably take place on site.

After subject-specific introductions, you will also receive information about the Campus Management System and the Moodle learning platform. We will inform you about topics such as barrier-free studies or studying with family, library use, student financing and studying abroad. In addition, there is of course also the opportunity to get to know Frankfurt (Oder), Słubice and your fellow students.
