Our aims

We make sure that international students feel comfortable in Bielefeld. For this reason, we made it our aim to

  • help international students, scientists and scholars in Bielefeld with their questions and concerns;
  • place international students, scientists and scholars with hosts and host families from the region;
  • support them in financial emergencies;
  • offer practical support with problems they face during their studies or in their everyday life;
  • propose a varied program of leisure and cultural activities which focus on NRW (North-Rhine/Westphalia)


Since 1985, ViSiB has been supporting international students, scientist and scholars at Bielefeld University and the University of Applied Sciences in Bielefeld. If you are interested in forwarding this project, become a member of the ViSiB-Team. We are grateful for your assistance!
