The information day was launched in 2018 by the Studentenwerk Leipzig in cooperation with the Leipzig Hochschule für Technik, Wirtschaft und Kultur and the Universität Leipzig. Since then, the event has been supported by other universities from Leipzig and the surrounding area. The aim is to inform international and refugee prospective students on the topics of applying, starting their studies and financing their studies. The event takes place annually.
