About 1,400 first-year students are welcomed to Leuphana during Opening Week. A team of more than 200 people is behind it - including the moderators, more than 30 academics, a studio team of more than 20 people as well as logisticians and technical experts. More than 110 tutors will also be on hand throughout the week to answer any questions you may have. The organization team is where all the threads come together before and during the week.
