Orientation programs for exchange students and incoming international students

You are an international student and are looking for:

-          Support with formalities (e.g. registration at the local registration office)?

-          Contact with other international and German students?

If so, we encourage you to participate in our orientation program for foreign students!

First international student orientation

This orientation program usually takes place at the beginning of September in preparation for the winter semester and at the beginning of March in preparation for the summer semester. It is especially aimed towards students who participate in the semester preparation course "Studying in Marburg" of our Language Center.

Second international student orientation

This orientation program is especially for students who do not participate in the semester preparation course of the Language Center. The second orientation program usually takes place at the beginning of October in preparation for the winter semester and at the beginning of April in preparation for the summer semester.

Note: Due to the current situation, the orientation programs take place digitally. Nevertheless, we do not want to do without personal interaction. As far as the infection situation allows, we will try to offer as many parts as possible in presence, in compliance with applicable hygiene measures.

Please note that for this reason there may be changes to the program at short notice.
As soon as the program for the coming semester is published, it will be available here.

Interested?

1) Are you an exchange student (e.g. ERASMUS or Overseas) or a “Freemover” coming to study in Marburg for just one or two semesters?

The registration takes place during your application via the online portal Mobility-Online.

Important: If you would like to make a change (e.g. you no longer want to participate in September but in October), please contact the respective coordination of your program (Ms. Langer (ERASMUS and ERASMUS Partner Countries), Ms. Lipinski (Overseas), Ms. Dinges (Freemover)). This is very important as we may need to adjust your room reservation.

2) Will you complete your entire degree program in Marburg?

Please register for the orientation program using this online form.

Faculty introduction weeks

Hint: In addition, your department offers subject-specific orientation units (so-called "OEs").

We strongly recommend that you also attend your department's orientation sessions. There you can meet students with whom you will study together and receive important information about your subject studies.
