After Arrival


  You’ve arrived. You’ve managed the first stage. And now? During orientation in preparation for your studies, you don’t have to remain alone in Wuppertal, as you can see here.


Starting University

New students have lots of questions, international students all the more. The German Academic Exchange Service (Deutscher Akademischer Auslandsdienst- DAAD) DAAD knows the most frequent, general problems encountered. Other groups are of assistance with regard to questions on a local level. >>

Learning German

Learning German

It is as sought after as it is feared by international university applicants: the DSH (Deutsche Sprachprüfung für den Hochschulzugang fremdsprachiger Studienbewerber) Press. >>



Language Tandem

Language Tandem

Learn foreign languages, write letters, chat, make telephone calls, and more - with the so-called language tandem, a student can find a partner anywhere in the world from whom to learn the other’s native language. >>

 


Problems

Problems

Bungled the exam, rent in arrears, trouble with fellow tenants – studies can’t always run smoothly. Contact persons are available with whom to discuss serious problems. >>



Contacts

Contacts

Things can sometimes get quite lively at the shared flat, but an international student does not come in contact with students from Germany or other countries more quickly than at a hostel. >>

 


Leisure Time

Leisure Time

The number of cultural and entertainment facilities in and around Wuppertal is as huge as the abundance of tips about where, when, what and for whom something is happening. >>



Jobs

Jobs

Part-time jobs and studying belong together. Provided the part-time job doesn’t take up too much time and studying suffers, a student job is great - also for international students. >>
