Introduction day

Perhaps you already know that the university has 7 faculties, about 7,000 staff members and more than 32,000 students. But do you also know where the motto ‘Praesidium Libertatis’ comes from? Or what the Sweat Room is and where it is located? Do you know what current issues the university is occupied with? The introduction day for new employees is your opportunity to really get to know the university.

  • welcome and knowledge quiz
  • 2 inspiration sessions
  • a speed date with your new colleagues
  • personal development
  • Q & A with an Executive Board member
