Meet the Karls

We can write a lot, but the best way to get to know the unique atmosphere of the Karls is to experience it yourself live. We offer you various opportunities to get to know the Karls from the inside:

Open House Days

On an Open House Day, we open the university for you: Learn about our study programs, get to know how to apply and take a look at our facilities. Some of our students and alumni are also on hand to tell you about their daily life as a student, the practical semester, their experiences abroad and the process of application. Our professors offer short, interactive lectures to give you a taste of the very special way we teach at Karls. During a guided tour of the University you can also attend presentations from our student project groups, who have the opportunity to take part in company projects or even advise companies and other organizations while they are still students.

Are you interested? Then check out our upcoming dates and register for one of them!

Sample Lectures

Our sample lectures offer you a direct insight into how we teach. On selected dates during the semester, you have the chance to attend real seminars, offering a unique opportunity to experience the course contents and methods in use at Karls.

Unfortunately, we have to place strict limits on the number of people attending each of the sample lectures. We will regularly publicise the latest dates here, and you can just click on your choice to book.

Alternatively, send an email to admissions(at) and you can arrange a personal consultation with our Admissions Service.

Upcoming sample lectures can be found here!

Karls on the road

Meet and feel the Karls – if you cannot come to one of our open house days, sample lectures or personal consultation meetings, there are plenty of other opportunities to get to know us outside of Karlsruhe. Study fairs, lectures in other cities or alumi meetings offer the chance to meet our students, professors or staff and get to know more about the Karls as well as to ask your questions.

Arrange a meeting with our Admission Service at one of our next study fairs or feel free to just come by and talk to us at our booth. You can find all upcoming dates here.
