Service and advice for international students

For students in the Bachelor's or Master's programme

The ISSC has been specially set up for international students taking their Bachelor's or Master's degree at Bielefeld University. The ISSC team can be reached by email at or during office hours online and in person as well as by appointment for all international (degree-seeking) students.

The ISSC also organises tours where you can get to know the city of Bielefeld and the University of Bielefeld. In addition, there are regular workshops on topics such as residence law or student financing.

Current ISSC office hours:

International students can contact our Service Desk at the Infopunkt (main university building) from Monday to Friday from 11:00 to 13:00.

In addition, we offer online office hours for international (degree-seeking) students via Zoom on Mondays from 12:00 to 13:00. You can access the Zoom room here.



  • Counselling services of the Faculties

    Subject-related questions (e.g. which seminars and lectures should be taken in which semester) can be answered by the Student Counselling Service, the academic student advisor or the departmental student representative committee of your Faculty. They will also provide you with information about the orientation programmes for the start of the semester of your degree programme.

  • Student Office

    Support with all matters relating to the application, enrolment, re-enrolment and exmatriculation. The International Students Office in the Student Office is responsible for all international students. The Info Point in the university hall in the main university building is also part of the Student Office. You can get quick answers there, especially about your Unicard.

  • Student Advising and Counselling (ZSB)

    The ZSB provides support for all questions related to studying (choice of degree programme, organisation of studies, possible change of subject). In addition, the ZSB offers psychosocial counselling for personal challenges during studies (contact problems, concentration and work disorders, exam nerves or and self-doubt).
