Orientation weeks at the physics departement

The Fachschaft Physik offers an orientation course ("Orientierungswoche") for new students at the TU Darmstadt, which takes place in the two weeks before the first lectures start. It will help you to make new contacts, to get an overview on the campus and on the lectures you will attend during your studies, and to become familiar with the campus-management system TUCaN where you can register for lectures and exams. In addition, every morning during these two weeks an introductory course is given. In the winter term it is about mathematical basics, while in the summer term it addresses both mathematical and physical topics. Here you can find more information on the introductory lectures.


The orientation weeks and the introductory course are non-compulsive, nevertheless we highly recommend to participate since it will make your start much easier. If you are not able to attend the course, please do not hesitate to write us an e-mail so you still can get information about the most important points for getting started. No registration is required, neither for the orientation week nor for the introductory lecture.


Information for exchange students (e.g. Erasmus): Some items of the programme will not be overly relevant when you only plan to stay one or two terms and have already started studying (e.g. the introductory course). Just write us an e-mail to get to know the relevant items of the programme.

We also offer a version of our schedule of the orientation weeks which is fitted for new master students. Click here for further information.
