Start of Studies: Welcome for first-year students


New life, new friends, new city: To ensure that first-year students quickly feel at home at FAU WiSo, there are not only a variety of introductory events, but also a very official welcome on October 16, 2023.

On this day, the school’s head and the Lord Mayor of the city of Nuremberg, Marcus König, will welcome the first-semester students. The welcome is held in German as well as in English for the Bachelor’s and Master’s students.

After the welcome, students have the possibility to visit WiSo’s info exhibition, where more than 30 facilities, institutions, initiatives and corporate partners of the WiSo introduce themselves. Many WiSo services and institutions, such as the Language Center and the University Library as well as the student organizations present themselves there. Student initiatives and corporate partners offer interesting information and insights. New students have the chance to familiarize themselves with all the possibilities and receive the information they need for a successful start to their studies.

In the afternoon, the inner courtyard of WiSo Nuremberg will be the venue for our get-together, including pretzels and drinks. Additionally, the mentoring program offers the WiSo Meet & Explore as an opportunity to get to know WiSo, the city of Nuremberg, and fellow students. On this day the popular WiSo first semester bags will also be handed out.
