Please plan your arrival with a margin to the start of the courses. It is usually a good decision to already attend language intensive courses and at least come 2 weeks before the courses start. You need time to accomodate, get a university account and enroll in the courses. The introductory days take place in the last week before the courses start and it is a good idea to visit these:
Prior to the beginning of the lectures, you have an introductory day at the Institute of Psychology, where the student advisors will show you all buildings, help you with course registration and point you to important locations in the town (grocery stores, shopping, leisure activities). The incoming days will take place in the week before the start of the courses. Additionally, the student association in Psychology FIPS will have introductory days every term before the courses start - a perfect opportunity to get an overview and to connect to other students in psychology - rely a "must have"!
