Flying Days

Introduction week Flying Days from the 27th of September to the 1st of October 2021

The introduction week Flying Days for first year students of the environmental campus Birkenfeld offers a variety of orientational and informational events, such as:

  • Introduction of the most important services and contact persons on the campus
  • An introduction to academic work and study (studying – the right way)
  • A campus tour as well as an introduction to using the library

At the heart of this week is your participation in the workshops or at the workshop stations across campus and the campus region, which will give you the chance to meet your fellow students.

Please note that participation in the Flying Days is mandatory for all first-year bachelor students.

You do not need to registrate to participate in the event.



Introduction to university services

On Wednesday, 6th of October, at 3 pm a virtual introduction of important university service units will be held on Zoom. The participation is part of the Flying Days Programm and thus mandatory.


In light of the unchanged Corona-situation, the event will be split according to study courses into three seperate welcoming events on seperate days. 

Please not you can only attend the events assinged to your course and you should not come to the campus on any other days.

For your degree program the event will take place from Wednesday, 29.09.2021 to Friday, 01.10.2021, each day from 9 a.m. - approx. 5 p.m.

The welcome event will take place at 9 am in front of the communication building (building no. 9938). Please come to the meeting point on 29.09.2021, starting at 08:30 a.m. Please keep sufficient distance when entering the area and use only the two entrances.

Important Information on visiting the event

We want to make your start at the university as safe as possible and therefore ask you to familiarize yourself with the university's hygiene regulations before your first visit to campus.Please read the hygiene regulations carefully and follow them conscientiously so that nothing stands in the way of your first semester at the university:

In particular, the 3G rule applies to participation in attendance events (flying days, lectures), i.e. all participants must be vaccinated, recovered or (negatively) tested and carry appropriate proof with them. In this respect, we would strongly recommend that you still take advantage of one of the many available vaccination offers at vaccination centers and doctors' offices. Please bring your own mouth-to-nose coverage. Because at the university there is a general obligation to wear a surgical mask or a mask of the standard KN95/N95 or FFP 2. The mask obligation also applies at the seat during lectures and examinations in presence.
