15th September | Culture Shock, Corona and Co - studying in times of uncertainty. Online workshop
What does it mean - not just to travel, but to move to another country to study, to live with people from all over the world and other worlds? How does it feel to be suddenly confronted by the euphoria of adventure and the need to cope with a complex everyday life? And what are we learning in the current moment of a pandemic? This online workshop aims to combine these two scenarios in order to reflect the strategies we need (and definitely have) to deal competently with unknown and uncertain situations and to set the directions for (intercultural) self-development and successful studies.

When: 15th September - noon to 3 pm ( UTC +1)
17 September 21 | International, digital, competent - intercultural teamwork in online settings. Online workshop
Social distancing and the partial digitalization of the studies has changed the way we communicate, learn and study TOGETHER at an international university. How can we competently deal with these changes? In this online workshop, we explore together the challenges, opportunities and strategies of teamwork in a virtual environment: What are your current patterns in teamwork? How do different cultures deal with or react to virtual communication. Which opportunities does online cooperation offer for intercultural effectiveness and what are the beneficial effects of diversity in a digital learning environment?

20 September 21 | You are almost there
Short before departure and still questions? In this online session you will have opportunities to ask your questions and interact with fellow international students via breakout sessions. At the end of the session we will leave you for another hour in the virtual space to chat with your fellow students if you’d like to.

22 September – 8 October | WELCOME.LOUNGE FOR ALL INTERNATIONAL DEGREE-SEEKING STUDENTS
Arriving in a new country can be exciting but also a bit overwhelming. Especially in this year, when social distancing has become so existential, we want to try to welcome you personally as well and support you with all organisational questions regarding enrolment, residence permit, housing and starting your studies.
According to the current directives the Campus.Office will remain closed until further notice. BUT our welcome tutors will contact each of you to organise a safe meeting outside to say hello and to hand over the welcome package.
If we do not have you on our mailing list, please write an email to email@example.com !
