Das Orientierungsstudium NaWiOs

You have not yet decided on a particular study course? Or you wish to use your time effectively until your study program?

The orientation study course for refugees and internationals at Bielefeld University is a perfect fit for you if you want to get an insight into studying at a German university.

The NaWiOS usually starts one week before the start of the regular courses with an introductory week. In the summer semester 2021 it starts on April 7th, 2021 and ends on July 23rd, 2021.


The application is possible again from June 15 to August 15, 2021.


For detailed questions and further counseling, you may visit the office hour by Christine Rausch and Diaa Albertawi.

Office hour via Zoom:
Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

If someone should be in the consultation hour before you, you will automatically be taken to the Zoom waiting room and you will receive a message as soon as it is your next turn.
