International Student Orientation

You are an international student and you are looking for:

  • Support with formalities (e.g. register with the local authorities)
  • Contact with other international and German students?

Then we would like to invite you to join our International Student Orientation - a one week program that helps you to ease the transition to the University of Marburg.

As an international student, you’ll be met with a warm welcome when you arrive on campus. We’ll make sure you get all the support you need to make the most of your student experience at Philipps-Universität Marburg.
At the start of your studies our orientation program guides you through your initial administrative tasks, like taking out a German health insurance or getting your student ID to hook up to the internet. During this one-week program, we will help you cut through most of the red tape and assist you with all the formalities such as university enrolment or opening a bank account. Likewise, there will be several get-togethers during which you will have the chance to get in touch with other international and German students and make first friends.
