Target Group: First semester bachelor and master students
Every semester, the Student Council organizes the so-called "Ersti-Tage" (First Semester Days) for all first semester students in the Bachelor and Master program, where you learn everything you need to know for your first semester at HPI. The program, which lasts several days, includes a tour of the campus, an introduction to everyday life at the university, contacts at HPI and an introduction to the infrastructure.
Typically, all first-year students in the Bachelor program are also offered a first-semester trip. This offers the opportunity to get to know each other better. Participation in the first semester trip is not necessary for a successful start to your studies, but it is a great provides from the students of higher semesters to their new fellow students.
The dates and further information about the introductory events and the Erstifahrt can be found on the pages of the Student Council.
