University of Erfurt Discovery Days - Experience studying up close from 8 to 12 May 2023

Get to know everyday university life and the campus

The discovery days at the University of Erfurt mean experiencing "studying up close". Within a week (on as many days as you like) you can attend selected courses (lectures or seminars) and get a taste of campus life.

The primary aim is certainly not to understand the subject matter presented, but rather to gain an impression of what "studying" means.

Take advantage of the taster course and get to know the campus and the university's facilities, talk to lecturers and students and find out about our range of courses on site. In short: form your own impression!

We look forward to your visit!

This is what awaits you on our discovery days:
  • Lecture on study orientation
  • Visit to courses
  • Visit to the Erfurt University Library
  • Insights from students of the desired degree programme
  • Guided tour of the university campus
  • Erfurt city tour
  • Information on housing and financing

Everything different at university? Not everything, but of course there are differences to school and that's why you might have questions about the taster days, about studying, about the university... First rule: Just ask! Our student advisory service, our subject advisors and our student campus specialists will be happy to help and advise you at any time.
