For international students

The International Office of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science is in charge of welcoming and introducing new master international students to our faculty. They offer a Welcome Day / an Introductory Video, provide you with useful information and run a Buddy Programme where every new student gets assigned a person already familiar with life and studying in Göttingen. You can find all information on that on their website.
This year’s Welcome Day takes place on October 13, 10 AM at Mathematical Institute, room: Übungssaal


Unfortunately, there is no orientation week for Master Mathematics students this year. Feel free though to join the events of the CS/DS Orientation Week, if you are interested.

Computer Science & Data Science

Timetable for the Data Science and Computer Science Orientation Week 2023

Greeting and Breakfast as well as Info Event take place at Provisorium (bus stop: Tammannstraße), room 0.101. About all other locations you will be informed on site and/or via Telegram group & email.

For Computer Science: If you have not received the link to our Telegram group yet, please write a short email to to get the invitation link

For Data Science:
For students, who start studying Applied Data Science (M.Sc.) in winter semester 2023/24, there is a whatsapp group: Applied Data Science – Whatsapp.

For Data Science students, the orientation week will start right after the precourse. If 30 minutes are not sufficient for you to get from the Central Campus (pre-course) to the North Campus (Info Event), please write into the Telegram group. We will then wait for you.
The most important event is the Info Event on Monday, 1PM.

Very helpful for finding certain rooms is the campus map. You can search for any room. If there are multiple rooms with the same name, you need to know the building. In addition to room search, there are features like displaying of bus stops and IT infrastructure.

Other issues or questions?

In case participating for you seems to be challenging due to disabilities or other limitations, feel free to contact or and we will do our best to make sure you can take part, too.

If you have any questions regarding the orientation week, please contact or
