Services for international students

The International Office is always available to provide international students with help and advice to deal with any problems. The Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences also has a number of advisory services for students that are specifically designed to meet the needs of international students:
- Social support ‘buddy programme’
- Learning German
- Mentoring programme
- Activities organised by the International Office
Social support – buddy programme
The first steps in a foreign country are not always easy. There are so many visits to authorities and it takes a while until you find your feet in your new life and make new friends. To make this transition period easier for you, you will be met at the station by a student buddy who will help you with your visits to the authorities and introduce you to life on campus and in Neubrandenburg. This services is organised by the International Office.

The Language Centre offers language courses before and during semester to improve your German language skills. You may also be interested in a language exchange that gives you the opportunity to improve your German language skills and to teach your native language in an exchange. This language exchange not only enables you to practise speaking German but also increases the contact you have with other students.
You´ll find information to offered language courses in the course catalogue (Vorlesungsverzeichnis) or on the web page of the Language Centre.
As part of the mentoring programme mentors doing the same course as you provide specialist support during your studies. These programmes are organised by the departments with the aim of contributing to successful study outcomes and can be used by exchange students and those students in their first semester. If you are interested, please contact the deans of the particular departments.
The International Office organises a number of activities for you during semester. On the excursions you will have the opportunity to become more familiar with the region and cities such as Berlin, Schwerin, Rostock and Potsdam, and you can make contact with other students during our friendly social and sporting activities. The programme is published at the start of the semester and added to as the semester progresses. We are happy to accommodate your requests.
