Willkommen zum Wintersemester 2019/20!


Hbk Erstemesterwoche 2019 Banner 715x200 Engl _1_

For new students at the HBK Braunschweig, Monday 14 October 2019 will be the very first day of their studies with us. To mark this special occasion, the university invites all new students to join us in the Great Hall (Aula) at 10.00 am, where they will be welcomed by Prof. Dr. Andreas Bee.

This kicks off a week of events and activities from 14-18 October 2019 under the motto “Now you’ve arrived, let’s get started!” where new students can get to know the HBK’s degree programmes, workshops and areas of study. The week will feature introductory ‘Getting to know you’ sessions held by each institute and the various central administration departments, while student ‘buddies’ will offer tours of the campus and the city of Braunschweig to help new students get the most out of their time at the HBK.

For international students, there will be a dedicated welcome event with top tips and important information to help you settle in and start to feel at home in Germany and the university. Meanwhile, the City of Braunschweig Theatre will be giving new students the chance to take a look “Behind the Scenes” and find out more about the exciting cultural opportunities that Braunschweig has to offer.

In a personal message to students, Acting President of the HBK Braunschweig, Dorothea Hilliger, said “I wish our new students the best of luck in the year ahead and every success in their studies!”


International Student Welcome
Especially international students get a lot of information when beginning their studies at our university. Most of the questions about the courses, the stay in Braunschweig, the housing situation or the cultural characteristics arise at that time. In order for nobody to lose track or feel foreign in an alien environment, we want to answer these questions
quickly to make arriving at the HBK easy! Often, initial language barriers tend to complicate the communication. Therefore it can be helpful to talk to somebody who was once as well new at the HBK and is familiar with the
situation. The International Student Mentor can give you good advise on who to talk to in order to get the best and quickest
answer. Whatever challenges you may encounter, asking questions is the first step towards the solution.
Usually, the consulting is held in german, but can also be held in english.
The International Student Mentor is your person of contact for your start of studies and beyond. Until all your questions
are answered and you have duly arrived.

Come around on the 17th of October from 12:00 to 02:00
p.m. in the AStA-Room
(Room 06/Mogi).
