frisch! at FAU – a magazine for new students
An online guide to starting at FAU
Welcome to FAU
Congratulations! You’ve decided to study at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg, and already you’ve found a valuable source of information: our magazine ‘frisch! an der FAU’ can tell you (nearly) everything you need to know about our university. It’s normal to have a lot of questions when you’re just starting out at university. Who can help me? Where can I get information? What impact might the pandemic have on my studies? We can reassure you of one thing: there’s no need to write off student life and don’t forget to think about the future as well. There’s nothing to stop you starting to find out about spending a semester abroad already. Then, when it’s time, you’ll be well prepared. Until then, you can discover all that the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region has to offer. ‘frisch!’ has plenty of tips about everything you need to know outside of your degree programme – accommodation, food, or having a good time, all without breaking the bank. FAU has an exciting range of further training courses and recreational activities on offer to cover all tastes, whether you are interested in (online) language courses, (virtual) sports courses, music or FAU campus media. If you are interested in being politically active and want to help shape FAU, a number of student initiatives would love you to get involved. And if you still don’t want to leave even after graduating, FAU is always keen to keep excellent young researchers.
We hope you enjoy your time here at FAU and do well in your studies. And even if you’re not quite convinced yet, you’re sure to realise once you’ve finished reading this issue: FAU is the place for you!
