Orientation week

The International Office has organises a special orientation week for new international students at Fulda University of Applied Sciences to answer questions about enrolment, classes, campus, making friends and many other topics. During the week we start out together on life at Fulda and you will have an opportunity to make contact with many other students.

You can look forward to an exciting week packed full of activities and plenty of valuable information. Student mentors from the International Office will be your first points of contact and will accompany you during the first two weeks at the University.

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