Information days about study programmes

The annual information days, carried out by the Course Guidance Centre, take place in the middle of March.

For three days, we are inviting all prospective students to come and inform themselves about the range of study programmes offered at our university.

Lecturers of the Department of Slavonic Studies will be present on one of these three days to inform about the programmes offered and to discuss and answer any upcoming questions.

Additionally, our student council will be present with their information desk (entrance foyer of the “Audimax“ (main lecture hall)). Please don't hesitate to come and visit them there to ask any questions you may have about studying in the Department of Slavonic Studies.
