To ensure a successful start to studies at Berlin International, the Welcome Days for the new academic year 2022/23 will take place. The aim of the event, which lasts several days, is to provide our first-year students with the most important information for a successful start to their studies and to bring them together with the entire BI community.
Our Welcome Days for all degree programs will be held September 21-29. We have decided to hold Welcome Days as a mix of online, hybrid, and on-campus events.
On the first day, students are assigned and receive an introduction to the programs by their respective program directors. This will be conducted hybrid - on campus with the option of online participation for those facing visa delays and travel restrictions due to the pandemic.
The second day will be handled online. After the welcome by the President, Prof. Dr. Yüksel Pögün-Zander, there will be an introductory session by our Student Affairs Team, where all information about the "Who is who", the procedures and facilities of the university, the study guide and among others information about the timetables will be given. The day ends with an Library Info Session as well as an MS Teams training for the students to make sure they are familiar with the learning management software.
From Friday through Wednesday, we will officially welcome our new students to campus. While enrollment and document review are taking place, our Workshop Manager, Holger Janke, will be conducting his introductory safety training in the workshop for students from the Faculty of Architecture and Design.
Equipped with all the necessary information and being fully enrolled, students will enjoy a guest lecture by Rouven Sperling - Project Manager Talent at International Berlin Partner for Business and Technology and learn how to successfully navigate as an International Student.
On the same day, students will have the opportunity to meet and interact with the Student Council as well as the Berlin International Alumni Association.
The Welcome Days will conclude with a joint Semester Welcome Party at Klunkerkranich with fellow students from all programs to enjoy the city of Berlin and its view from the top and to get to know each other.
We are looking forward to an educational and entertaining week.
We wish all students a successful start to the Fall 2022/23 semester and see you soon!
