Welcome to Esslingen University!

Esslingen University would like to welcome its Incoming Students!

Traditionally in Esslingen, a welcome ceremony is held for all incoming students on their first day of classes at the University. During this ceremony, the new students receive important information and learn about the curriculum and extra-curricular activities in Esslingen.

In the winter semester 2021/2022, there will be no central introductory event in presence due to the Corona pandemic. Instead, a film will be published at the start of lectures for first-semester students, containing all the important information about the start of studies. However, the faculties will welcome the new students in decentralised introductory events.

This website is here to help you orient yourself in your first weeks of study.

Virtual Market of Opportunities

The Academic Director of your programme and the Faculty Secretary are your contacts for all questions regarding your studies. For all personal matters, please contact the Student Advice Centre.
