Welcome to the website of the Association to Support International Students in Bielefeld (ViSiB)!
Every year, many students and scholars from abroad come to Bielefeld to study, teach, research and immerse themselves in a new culture. ViSiB (Association to Support International Students in Bielefeld) is a contact point for newcomers in Bielefeld since 1985. The ViSiB-Team supports students in their problems: Whether it's questions of accommodation, financial problems, adjusting to life in new surroundings - together we can master any challenge.
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).
