Freshers/First-year students

The Institute of Linguistics and Literary Studies welcomes you as new students!

We are happy that you have decided to pursue a course of studies with us at Technische Universität Darmstadt. For your orientation, we have put together some important information on this page that will also be introduced during the orientation week and that will offer orientation during your studies.

Curricula / Course documents

We recommend that you familiarize yourself with some official documents formally outlining your course of studies. The Study and Examination Plan (Studien- und Prüfungsplan, SPP) as well as the regulations for the degree program
(Studienordnung ) contain recommendations on the possible succession of courses as well as information on the form and duration of examinations . The information contained in these documents will be introduced during the orientation week, so it is best to already have some familiarity with these documents that will be relevant throughout your studies.


The online platform TUCaN is the Campus Management System of Technische Universität Darmstadt. On TUCaN, all relevant processes such as enrollment for courses and exams as well as exam and grade management are documented and accessible at any time.
