The International Office offers an inspiring and varied culture and events programme every semester. There is something for everybody – from city trips and visits to museums through to cinema and cultural evenings! You will receive the relevant information by e-mail a few weeks beforehand. So keep an eye on your mailbox, there is a restriction on the number of participants for some events.
The culture programme not only provides international students with the opportunity to gain exciting experiences and to have fun, but is also fosters intercultural competence.
Hence, you are all very welcome to go on a discovery trip with us!
