International Welcome Weeks
From the beginning of next year, you can find the program for the Welcome Weeks summer semester 2020 here! (scroll to page two for the english version)
Dear freshman,due to the current corona pandemic (Covid-19) all courses of the summer semester will be suspended until the 20th April 2020. This also means that all activities to be offered during the Welcome Week 2020 will be cancelled.We kindly ask for your understanding, we will try to catch up some events as soon as possible.
Students usually compare the beginning of their studies with the entrance into a whole new world: The schedule for the first semester has to be prepared, a variety of administrative tasks must be organized, the search for a flat and a lot more Moreover, one is on one’s own now in a new environment and many things must be arranged independently. This applies to German students as well as to Internationals.
The International Office organizes a program in cooperation with the IKUS, that is designed especially for the needs of our international freshmen and new exchange program students.
Our aim is not only to integrate the Internationals but moreover to bring German and international students together from the beginning of their studies to give them the possibility for new experiences and friendships.Further aims of the international welcome week are:
- offer guidance for the execution of administrative procedures
- facilitate the mutual experience for German and international students of what it means to be a student at the OVGU
- freshmen should learn about the diversity of campus life, at the same time university and cultural groups have the opportunity to present themselves.
