It starts with the official welcome at 1.50 pm, which will be followed by a countdown in front of Heinrich-Lades-Halle in Erlangen, before the doors open at 2 pm. The event continues with information stands from over 50 exhibitors, including a large number of institutions at FAU such as the Language Centre, the University Library, University Sports or the start-up consulting service, different students’ associations as well as a range of advisory services to help first year students adjust to student life outside of lectures, seminars and tutorials and put them on the right track.

In the large hall, the FAU President and the representatives of the three cities will be handing out the extremely popular FAU messenger bag packed with postcards, sweets and lots of information. All students looking for a part-time job or an internship should take a look at the job wall.

The FAU Shop will also be there for all those who would like to buy an FAU t-shirt or any other merchandise.
