The Concept

The association has numerous offers for international students, scientists and scholars, which are:

Finding hosts and host families

This project addresses all international students, scientists and scholars who would like to have a more profound experience with German culture and people, and who want to get to know their new place of study better. ViSiB finds host families or couples who are interested in regular meetings and an intercultural exchange.
