Compulsory events and presentation of institutions and initiatives

On Wednesday, March 13 , some important compulsory events will take place:

  • Introduction to the examination system by Prof. Dr. Mauser
  • Lecture on occupational health and safety and fire safety at the university by Mr. Kranz

RWU thrives on student participation. A large number of student initiatives have therefore been set up to help shape the university. Through their involvement, students have better career opportunities and the chance to think outside the box. Studies by the state of Baden-Württemberg also show that students who are involved at the university are more likely to successfully complete their studies.
