Dear new students,

welcome to our department! We wish you a great start. We hope that we will be able to meet you in person soon, but there may still be remote introductory sessions due to Corona regulations. Please find all the information you need to get started in the Moodle course -- basically a website -- of your respective program. Here you will find tips on how to plan your first semester, and dates for orientation meetings (and their formats) that you should not miss. You can access Moodle with your new HU-account. If you haven't got your HU-account yet, you can log in as "Gast/Guest" with your private email address.

See you there!
