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 day at both FHWS locations. Various FHWS facilities and services that may be of help for new students introduce themselves and talk about what they are doing; there is, for example, the Academic Advisory Centre, the Studentenwerk Würzburg (helps with financing options, social counselling, psychoterapeutic counselling), the FHWS Career Service (application training etc.), Bavarian Virtual University (BVU), the FHWS International Office (study abroad, internships abroad), the Library and the IT Service Centre. An overview and the timetable of this orientation day is published in good time on the FHWS homepage.

At the start of the winter semester, FHWS is inviting all first semester students to a short welcome talk by the President of FHWS. This is also a good opportunity for students from all faculties to get a lot of useful information.

Information about accomodation, student financing and BAföG, counselling services in difficult situation or when studying under difficult circumstances is 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.
