How to get enrolled

Step by step to enrolment

Below please find a step-by-step instructions on how to enroll at our university and how to register with the city for semester start in October 2022.

Central programme Are you ready to start?

Our Welcome Days begin on October 4th, 2022, with an interactive campus rally: In a small group with other freshmen students, you will explore the campus and the university, solve small tasks together and make first contacts with your professors and fellow students. In the days that follow, you will get to know your faculty and the university's procedures. You can choose whether you want to experience Welcome Days in person on campus or - because you belong to a risk group or cannot travel to Germany just yet - take part in the digital campus rally.

We are pleased to be able to invite you personally to our Welcome Day event on our campus, despite Corona. We therefore ask for your understanding that we will comply with all applicable hygiene and protection measures during the event and therefore, for example, conduct the interactive campus rally in small groups. To register for the event, you can choose between different time slots. Then, in preparation, you will receive a Welcome Day package from us by mail (only for valid addresses within Germany and registrations until 18th of September] at the end of September, containing all relevant information about your personal schedule and your personal badge. 

Please bring your personalised badge with you on the day of the event. You will need the badge during the Welcome Day for the following activities:

  • Check-in Campus Rally
  • Picking up your welcome gift
  • Picking up your student ID card

Finally, we kindly ask you to be at the university (entrance of the SRH University Heidelberg, Ludwig-Guttmann-Str. 6, 69123 Heidelberg) on time on the day of the event so that your first day at the university can start as relaxed and smoothly as possible. We look forward to seeing you!

All freshmen students who are currently unable to travel to Germany due to the Corona pandemic, as well as those who are at risk, have the opportunity to take part in our virtual campus rally.

After you have successfully registered, you will receive your individual access data by e-mail at the end of September. Our digital campus rally will take place via the video conferencing tool "MS Teams" - no registration or account creation is necessary. You can log in comfortably via the respective meeting link from your PC, laptop or mobile device.

To make it easier for you to start your studies, we are offering you a central IT, library and Moodle introduction on 5 October. During the 90-minute event, you will gain a comprehensive insight into the use of the various tools and services, get to know our contact persons and also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may still have.  

Registration Register online until 1st of October and get started:

Please enter your personal Welcomeday code in the field below, which you received in your Wecomeday e-mail from us. If you don't find an email in your inbox, please also check your SPAM folder.
