You have decided to start a course of studies or are thinking about doing so?
Studies are beneficial for many reasons – maybe they are the way to your dream job or you are simply interested in a certain subject?
A course of studies is a very special stage of life that will impress you in a long-term sense by bringing about many new, exciting – maybe sometimes also challenging – experiences, that will contribute to your personal growth.

We want to help you to make the first steps of this new period of your life with a solid footing. Accordingly, we have compiled useful tips for the initial organisation of your daily life at your (new) study location Hildesheim on the following pages – so that you can fully concentrate on your studies!
