Members of the Tutorentreffen 2013Tutor meetings across Germany

Every three years, tutors involved in Germany’s Studentenwerke meet in Bad Bevensen. How many tutors are currently involved in the integration of international students in halls of residence? What do tutors offer? Do students take up this offer?

The SIK uses these meetings to respond to these and other questions about tutors’ work.

  • exchange of information and experience
  • new project ideas
  • networking
  • supporting students from Cameroon
  • "burning questions" – content put forward by open- space participants

The meetings are supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
