New at FAU – Winterterm 2021/22

The start of studies for the winter semester 2021/22 will also be a digital one. Nevertheless, we want to support you in the best possible way. Therefore we have planned the following activities and events for you. In this case we are called the Fachschaftsinitative Medizintechnik, an association of motivated students from different semesters, who want to help you to get the best possible study. You can find more about us on our website.


We are hosting a pubcrawl through the bars of Erlangen on Thursday 07th October 2021. We will meet at 7p.m. at the Schlossplatz and from here we will go in small groups in different bars.

Early Bird Events

You surely have a lot of questions about your semester start. Here you can ask questions about studying, the current Corona situation or living in Erlangen. In all Events the informations will be the same, so it is enough to visit one of the three Meetings. The following online events are planned.:

Friday 20.08.2021 12 a.m.

Wednesday 18.09.2021 6 p.m.

Thursday 23.09.2021 6 p.m.

Welcome Day and Guided Campus Tours

The Master Welcome Day and the Bachelor Welcome Day which we are planning together with the student advisors will take place on 15.10.2021 at 9 am CET and for the Bachelor on 18.10.2021 at 10 am CET. At the beginning there will be a small welcome round and a presentation part, where the student advisory service will introduce you to the formalities. Afterwards, we from the student association will give you an introduction to the online portals and how you can best compile your timetable. This semester it will be in a lecture hall (H4), from which there will also be a livestream via Zoom.

We are also planning to offer guided campus tours. These will take place in the week before the semester starts. If you are unable to take part or can’t wait to see the university, you can already watch our campus tour video from last winter term here on StudOn. (Unfortunately it is only available in German)

Buddy Program

The group buddy system introduced in last winter semester is planned again for the winter semester.

Here you find the groups:

Q&A sessions for lecture selection:

Since the choice of subjects in the Master is often difficult, we plan a consultation hour at the beginning of the semester where you can ask all your questions about the modules in the Master.
