Welcome Freshmen


Dear students, 

The start of the semester is approaching in big steps. Perhaps you are already holding your letter of admission in your hands and wondering what to do now? On this page we would like to give you some hints for a successful start of the semester.

Since we believe that your study start will be more sucessful, we  try to offer as many modules as possible in presence. However, huge lectures might still take place in digital or hybrid formats.

ATTENTION: if you are new at CAU, please take care to be familiar with tools like OLAT and UniviS. With the official acceptance letter, you also receive a stu-Id which you can use for login at OLAT. Please also register at the OLAT-3G-Tool (detailed information available at the general CAU webpage for students) to support a quick-check of your G-status.
Please find more information about the planning status of our teaching here. You also find information there about OLAT and UniviS.
Are you looking for exemplary timetables? Then take a look here.


Special Information AgriGenomics:
Most of the lectures in the first semester of the AgriGenomics study course will take place online or as hybrid form. Therefore, the presence of the students is not strictly required before 15.01.2022. After this date, the practical courses will begin and therefore the attendance of the students in presence is required. More information about the timetable and the schedule in winter semester can be found under https://www.agrigenomics.de/en/timetable.html

In addition to the information directly around the start of the semester, we also offer information on our pages "Around your studies" - furthermore, the student council is a good contact when it comes to student concerns and questions, especially for first-year students. Just have a look at the quicklinks. The Student Council also offers an extensive program for freshmen - often even BEFORE the semester officially starts.
