Orientation week

The International Office offers an orientation week for new international students at Fulda University of Applied Sciences each semester to inform about enrolment, lectures, campus, health insurance and many other topics. During the week we usually start out together on life in Fulda and students have an opportunity to make contact with each other.

Unfortunately, this year it's all different due to the pandemic! Classes are online and most students will stay in their home countries and take online classes for this semester. So most activities can't take place and in-class presentations are replaced by online presentations. Still, we encourage you to soak up the information and make contact with your fellow international students online, before you will hopefully all meet on campus next year.

Tutors and international office staff are still here for you.

Every new beginning has its challenges, but it’s a lot easier when you’re not alone!

Orientation for international Students, Summer Semester 2021

All info sessions will be offered online at 11:30 a.m. CEST (UTC +2) .
You only need to participate once in each presentation, as they are repeated weekly with identical content.
