The OU of the Department of Informatics is for B.Sc. Informatics, Software Systems Development, Human-Computer Interaction, Computing in Science, Teaching Informatics and M.Sc. Informatics and Intelligent Adaptive Systems.
For teacher trainees in B.Sc. Teaching Informatics, we offer a separate programme on Friday, Oct 6th, which starts together with the OU for all other Computer Science Bachelor students. More information is available on our teacher-trainee page.
Absolutely, yes! The OU offers you the best start to your studies. If you can't keep all the days free, please send us an email to find out which events are the most relevant for you.
Since we also have an extensive evening programme, try to keep the evenings free as well.
We wholeheartedly recommend that you participate on all days.
The OU will be in the language of your course, meaning in most cases that will be German. But in the case of i.e. IAS it will be english
The iTAN list includes codes that are needed to enroll or withdraw from courses. You should have received it by mail after having transfered your tuition fees. But don't worry: You can still participate in the OU if you haven't received it.

I am studying Wirtschaftsinformatik or IT Management and Consulting, is there also an OU for me?
There is! You can find information about the OE of Wirtschaftsinformatik, which covers the courses B.Sc. Wirtschaftsinformatik, M.Sc. Wirtschaftsinformatik and M.Sc. IT Management and Consulting on their page Fachschaft Wirtschaftsinformatik.
Yes! Just like for the first semester students, the university with its structures and processes is new to you. In addition, you will learn tips and tricks about junior studies from a former junior student. It is therefore doubly worthwhile to take part in the OU. You can find more information on the page for junior students page for junior students.
No. The OU (and later OU-weekend) are for freshmen only.
The OU for M.Sc. Intelligent Adaptive Systems has its own schedule: It officially starts on Monday, 09th of October 2023 and ends on the 13th of October. In addition, this year we are potentially planning an optional pre-programme to get to know and explore the campus and Hamburg, which would start on Friday, 06 October 2023, just like the general OU. You will receive further information about the implementation of the exact schedule by email.
