Did you know that “Ersti” refers to first-year students in the German language? This mandatory event is the place for you to learn about key information, make new connections, and find out how to succeed at UE. Taking place the week before classes begin, we offer a variety of sessions to connect you with faculty, staff, and UE students. You will be introduced to strategies, tools, connections, resources, and advice to ensure your smooth transition into your first semester. You will meet faculty, professional staff, the UE Tech team, career specialists, get answers to your immigration and financial questions, and meet with the faculty experts in your study programme on campus. 

Get ready & join our Ersti Week

Attendance at Ersti Week is mandatory for all new students unless you are waiting for a visa. You can join in MS Teams using your student access provided during enrolment. This exciting week will lay the foundation for your study experience at UE.
