Good to know. Important things to know when you start your studies.
To be able to start successfully in the management of a company, you need business knowledge. Our international degree programmes not only focus on foreign languages and internships abroad, but also include business administration content. These often build on calculation, analysis, and interpretation of key figures.
If you need to brush up on your math skills, we offer a crash course in mathematics. This is also recommended if your Abitur was taken some time ago due to stays abroad or vocational training. One week before the start of your studies, we will brush up on the exact mathematics content you need for your studies at the Dresden School of Management in 20 teaching units.
All information about the crash course in mathematics can be found here.
In order for you to be enrolled, it is important that you have or take out health insurance. The German Social Security Act states that as a student at a state or state-recognised higher education institution in Germany, you must prove that you have sufficient health insurance cover for the entire period of your studies. Here you have two options:
Are you covered by public health insurance?
- Then submit an insurance certificate from your insurance company to our university.
Are you covered by private health insurance?
In this case you are either "exempt from insurance" or "exempt from public insurance".
- Then contact a statutory insurance (see info sheet for contact details) & present the insurance certificate (if applicable, insurance policy) of your private insurance.
- You will receive either a "proof of exemption from compulsory insurance" or a "notice of exemption".
- Submit this proof and the insurance certificate of your private insurance to our university.
How to submit the proof and by when?
- Antonia Gomille from the Admission Service
- in advance by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or during the Welcome Week (introduction week).
- You will receive more detailed information about your start at the university and about the Welcome Week (introduction week) latest one week before the start of your studies.
- In the Academic Calendar you will find all lecture times, lecture-free periods, and public holidays per semester.
- You will receive the timetable as well as all important information about the course of studies and the course content from your programme director during the introductory week. During your studies, you can access this directly in our CampusNet study portal.
To help you settle in well at the Dresden School of Management, we have "Student Buddies" on our campus. These are students from higher semesters who will accompany you through the Welcome Week. They are your contact persons for all matters concerning your studies at our university and should make your start easier. If you are already a student at our university, you can find more information about our buddy programme here.
You will have to pay the following fees for your studies at the Dresden School of Management:
