How to prepare for the Pitstop Enrolment Day?

During the Pitstop Enrolment Day you will have a 10-minute chat with an academic staff member. Please prepare an answer to the following two questions:

  1. Which major or major specialisation are you interested in and why?
  2. What makes studying in an international and intercultural student community attractive to you and what would you like to gain from this? Give concrete examples and/or use your own personal experiences.

Should you have any questions prior to the Open Day, please contact us at We hope to see you at the Open Day!
