Getting started

Welcome to FHWS!

To make it easier for all new students who have successfully applied and enrolled, we compiled the most important information on this page. No matter if you are enrolled for a bachelor's or a master's degree programme, this site wants to help you to get started.

Immediately before the start of the winter semester, there is an orientation programme for new students in Würzburg and in Schweinfurt. New international students are offered ample information from health insurance and housing to intercultural training.

At the start of the winter semester, FHWS is inviting all first semester students to a short welcome event by the President of FHWS. This is also a good opportunity for students from all faculties to get a lot of useful information. There are also introductory events for certain degree programmes.

Information about accomodation, student financing and BAföG, counselling services in difficult situation or when studying under difficult circumstances is also provided by Studentenwerk Würzburg. It is also responsible for all the university canteens and cafeterias in Würzburg and Schweinfurt; their menus are available on Studentwerk's homepage, too.

Your FHWS Card is an important card, because it serves as semester ticket for public transport, your library card, key card to open doors and an electronic means of payment. All information about how you get it and how it works, as well as answers to the most important questions are compiled in the section on Information on your FHWS Card.
