All you can think

Under the motto "All you can think" we have gathered together all events that are somehow related to the study of philosophy in Bielefeld, but are not directly courses. These include events that make it easier to start studying, but also those that provide information about other aspects of the degree programme, such as stays abroad. In short, everything else that is important during your studies. You are cordially invited to everything!

If we have aroused your interest, you can find more detailed information about the events via this link.
