Orientation Programme

A new country, a new city, a new university, and hardly any familiar faces... Going abroad can be a challenge. In order to facilitate the beginning of your study stay we have organized an orientation programme with an intensive German language course. It takes part before the lecture period begins, helps to settle in more easily, and gives opportunity to get to know fellow international students. This is - amongst other events - part of the programme:

  • Enrolment at Bielefeld University
  • Intensive German language course
  • Information on the university, the library, and the study system
  • A guided city tour and various trips to places in and outside of Bielefeld
  • Get-togethers and meetings with international students and student mentors

It is possible to receive 4 - 5 credit points for the intensive language course, if students take part regularly and sit the final exam. Dates for the orientation programme and more information can be found in the Infosheet in the -> Download Section.

Please note:
It is very much recommended that you take part in the orientation programme with intensive German language course as it is the best start for your study period in Bielefeld and offers ample opportunity to get to know fellow students. It also guarantees an early and speedy issuing of your student card, including the combined access to the internet and electronic information system of Bielefeld University and of the Semester-Ticket for free public transport in Bielefeld and the surroundings.
