International Orientiation Week

Every semester, an International Orientation Week is offered by the ZIB Jura for international students. Within this framework, students learn about the study programme in Cologne and about the university itself. In addition, the programme, which also includes city and pub tours, will make it easier for international students to get in touch with Cologne and to connect with other ERASMUS participants and German students.

Within the Orientation Week, a legal terminology course will be offered which will introduce the students to German law, especially civil law. The course will be held in German. For this course, students can receive 3 ECTS credits upon passing the exam. Students will also get the opportunity to meet our team, which is available as contact persons at any time. We will inform incoming students on the exact settings and programme of the Orientation Week some weeks prior to the start of the semester.

The International Orientation Week takes place in the week before lectures begin.
