Further recommendations

We recommend our international students to take part in the “Study Camp” before starting their studies and to select the “Ambassador Destination course”.


Study Camp

Before you start your studies we recommend to take part in the “Study Camp”. The Study Camp takes place before the start of the winter semester and lasts two weeks. It offers you the opportunity to start successfully into your studies, to meet other students, to find new friends and to earn credits at the same time. Other visiting students as well as German freshmen take part in the Study Camp. You can register for the Study Camp from the mid of July. Presently the Study Camp can only be offered before the winter semester.

In spring semester, the International Office offers the so-called “Spring Welcome Weeks” for the international incoming students. These include an intensive German language course and the chance to discover the city of Hanover and its surroundings. The International Office will also help you to complete the formalities (e.g. enrolment and residence permit). The exact date of the “Spring Welcome Weeks” will be provided by the International Office.


Ambassador Destination

In the “Ambassador Destination” course you will learn more about the different cultures and you will widen your knowledge in the field of an effective intercultural communication. You will be able to describe and reflect your own conduct and that of others, and understand how intercultural interaction takes place in a working or educational environment.
