Our Welcome Day – Starting your Studies
The first PEP semester begins every year with our “Welcome Day” because we want you to settle in and feel at home quickly at Universität Hamburg. On this day we introduce our faculty and the campus with all its facilities. You get to talk with our teaching staff, meet master’s students of higher semesters and become familiar with the procedures. More information about the "Welcome Day"
