Poetry Slam + Workshop

Dear students,

together with the student representatives of Romance studies and Pedagogy (“IG Romanistik” and “Zentrumsvertretung Lehramt”) we have organized a free workshop on “Poetry Slam” and a complementing Slam performance – you are all invited to participate. This offer might be of special interest to future teachers as it gives you the opportunity to speak in front a large audience and to apply the concept of Poetry Slam in your own school lessons.

In December, there is going to be a Poetry Slam for the participants of the workshop, which offers you the possibility to perform your own text in front of an audience. Time and date will be announced as soon as possible.


Group 1: MO (weekly) from October 27th to December 1st, from 2 to 4 pm

Group 3: WE (weekly) from October 29th to December 3rd, from 3.30 to 5.30 pm

The Friendly Neighborhood University Survival Guide

Dear Freshies,

Starting your university career can be fun, exciting and also overwhelming. In school, your teachers and the administrative staff have prepared your schedule, told you when assignments were due and reminded you to prepare for exams. Now, as a university student, you will have to take care of all these things (and more!) yourself.

But fear not, for there is help out there! Perhaps you have friends and relatives who can give you some “freshmen advice”. Speaking of friends, let us introduce you to your new best friend who you can (and should) seek out whenever you are facing any kind of trouble: the INTERNETz! It knows the answer to nearly any question you might have. And what do you have to do to get an answer? That’s right, you have to ask a question first!

Throughout your studies you will understand what “doing research” actually means, but this is what you should already know in advance: studying is all about asking questions and trying to find the answer.

For your convenience, we have created this Frequently Asked Questions Site. Read it carefully. We get so many e-Mails with questions that could be answered within a few minutes, if only students took their time to read the many info sites.

Before we get started, make sure you bookmark the following links. Before asking anyone else, have a look at these.

#1: This is the department website section for enrolled students (a.k.a you). Read all the content of this page and links on the left side. This will be your daily bread and butter!

#2: This is the course directory (current semester = WS 2014/15):

#3: Here you find exam dates:

#4: Also, if you’re using Facebook, make sure you enter the groups we administer. Become a member asap to have the latest updates.

And we are back!

Dear students,

after a few months of absence, we finally managed to get ourselves a new website – may the old one rest in pieces. Shortly, we will fill these pages with tons of information regarding anything you might be interested in or in need of. Please be patient, however, we will (as of July 9th) need at least another week to get everything done the way it was before.

If you have any questions, find mistakes or miss something that should be available here, feel free to email us at

We wish you a pleasant summer and much relaxation,

the student representatives
