International and intercultural relations

Services for international students in Germany

The country’s 57 Studentenwerke ensure that students receive more than a research and teaching programme at their higher education institution: they make students feel welcome and at home. The Studentenwerke shape the framework conditions for studying and in doing so take the diversity of the student body into account.

In addition to accommodation and catering services, the Studentenwerke also provide international and German students with diverse cultural offers, general social welfare advice, psychotherapeutic and psychological support, and help with childcare, legal issues and financial difficulties.
