Further Recommendations


We recommend our international students

to take part at some especial courses and events.

Study Camp

The Study Camp takes place before the start of winter semester and lasts two weeks. It offers 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 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.

You would like to become more apt at speaking German? The ZLB-Language Center offers 2-week intensive German courses each semester, in February and September, before classes start.
