First Semester Welcome


Dear First Semester Students,

We are happy to welcome you at the OTH Amberg-Weiden!

Good luck in your studies!



First steps: This is for all the female students...! There is a special mentoring called "first steps", an offer of the Centre for Gender and Diversity at OTH Amberg-Weiden, and it is available for female students of all courses. Here, first-year female students are networked with female students of higher semesters over a period of 9 months and they receive an exclusive programme of additional courses focusing on career and leadership skills.
