You’re still at school but you’re eager to catch a first glimpse of life is like at university? Then this day at Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf is exactly what you’re looking for!

A trial day at uni

Get to know life on campus, attend lectures, get in-depth information on interesting topics from our experts, have lunch at the canteen or one of the cafeterias on campus, visit the library and much more!

Schnuppern@Uni trial days are an opportunity for prospective students to attend regular, day-to-day lectures and to get an authentic impression of the contents of the respective subjects to help them decide whether this is what they want to study. On this day they can also meet students and lecturers and the get first-hand, in-depth information from them. There are two easy ways to do this:  

You can either spend the day on campus on your own or together with a student.

Student Services will put together your programme for that day. This requires registration by email no later than one week prior to the desired date! We need your name, age, school, the subject you’re interested in and, of course, the date you wish to come to us.
