Moving to a new country with an unfamiliar language and culture is exciting but can sometimes also be challenging. We would like to support you and ease your transition so that you can focus on your studies. This is why we offer a buddy programme and orientation weeks, which begin around two weeks before the start of the semester.
As an international student, you will be matched with a local “buddy" who will help you to get settled in Aschaffenburg. Your buddy, who will be a full-time student at Aschaffenburg UAS, will help you with all your administrative and social queries about moving to Aschaffenburg. For instance, they can help you with putting your class schedule together, go with you to the municipal registration office or the bank, and answer any questions you have about studying here.
During the orientation weeks, you will become acquainted with our university, the City of Aschaffenburg and its surroundings. The orientation weeks consist of a series of informative and social meetings, which are designed to give you more information on studying and living in Aschaffenburg. These events are also a great opportunity to get to know your fellow students a bit better and make new friends.
Starting date: 2 March, 2023. Attendance is mandatory.
International arrival day is Wednesday, 1 March, 2023.
