New student at Heidelberg University?

The students’ representatives council MathPhysInfo is offering an induction event for all new Master’s students on Wednesday, April 14th 2021 starting at 4pm (CEST). As this event mainly addresses questions regarding the organization of studies and various service offers for an everyday life of a student in Heidelberg, it aims to especially introduce newly arriving students at Heidelberg University to their new learning and living environment. After an introductory presentation there will be plenty of time to ask individual questions, so that everything is set for the winter term. Please note that there might be an additional welcome event from the faculty or institute for your programme.

The Master’s induction event is open for all postgraduate students in the Mathematics, Applied Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Physics and Scientific Computing programmes.

Due to the ongoing pandemic this event will take place online on the discord server of the student council.

Please don’t hesitate asking questions already prior to the event via email to

For all those of you who aren’t able to attend this event online, we are planning to record the talk and upload it on Youtube afterwards.
