Successful completion of one or more language courses is mandatory for our Bachelor's degree programmes. As this usually involves an English course, a placement test in English must be taken at the start of the programme.

In the library, students will find an extensive and informative stock of media, in digital or printed form. A dedicated team helps them to find information for their assignments and projects. The library also offers workshops and training courses on numerous topics.

E-mail, SIS, LEA and WLAN

After self-registration, new students receive access to the central e-mail server for students via the MIA portal and learn their departmental code for logging on to the student information system SIS and the e-learning system LEA.
