Organising the beginning of your studies


If you have been given a University place at the HWR Berlin, you will receive a written decision regarding your admission to the corresponding degree programme sent by the Registration and Enrolment Services. This letter of admission contains all of the relevant information regarding the next steps until enrolment.

If you wish to accept your University place, you must pay the semester contribution within the specified time limit. Once the semester contribution has been received, you will be enrolled automatically without needing to attend in person.

Then you are ready to go! Tips from other students at the HWR Berlin to prepare you for the beginning of your studies:

Guidance for first semester students

Guidance sessions will be held in the various Departments for all students embarking on their first semester at the HWR Berlin. You will be given information and support here to ensure you get off to a good start with your studies. There will also be a presentation of the key contacts and points of contact for when you start at the University. Students will have the chance to find out about the most important points of their degree programme and how the University works.

But there will also be a chance to celebrate of course! It is typically the case that a first semester party organised by students will be held shortly after the semester commences; further details will be provided in due course via notices.
