Programme

The Opening Week marks the start of your studies: it begins on Thursday, 6 October, and ends on Friday, 14 October. During the first two days, you can arrive at Leuphana at your leisure. You will meet the tutors, your project group and get to know the professors of your degree programme.

After a free weekend, you will then devote yourself to the topic of the Opening Week, "Turning Points", and your project work. You will gather impressions in group work and discussions with people from science, society and politics. In the process, you will develop your own vision for the world society of tomorrow. After an exciting week in which you have approached the topic from different perspectives, the Opening Week will come to an end with the grand finale on Friday, 15 October.

Please find details about the packed programme below.
