Long night of student advisory services

Once a year, Student Advisory Services offices at all universities in the NRW participate in the “Long night of student advisory services.” The OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts is taking part in this campaign. The event is scheduled shortly before the end of the application period for the winter semester, July 15th, and allows prospective students to ask all of their questions on studying at the university.

Open lectures

Do you want to listen in on a lecture with no registration and no commitment required? No problem! Each semester, departments open up some regular events from different degree programs to any interested listener. Typically, these are introductory events for first-semester students, but in some cases visitors may attend lectures for more advanced semesters.

University information days

The OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts invites all prospective students to attend University information days at the Lemgo campus – there, we can answer all of your questions about studying at the university in general, and about our university in particular. Short presentations will provide information on different degree programs, the university application and admissions process, financing your studies, taking a gap year, and much more. You can pose your questions directly to students or university employees during a personal discussion at our “Career opportunities market.” In addition, professors from different departments will present their degree programs and outline commonalities, differences, and intersections.
