Students can choose between courses during the semester and intensive courses during the semester break. The group size is limited to 25 participants, the courses are free or charges (except study-preparatory courses of German as a Foreign Language (DaF).

Association for the Support of Foreign Students in Würzburg

Disease, war in their home country or the death of a close relative can cause a financial gap that can not be filled due to the limited work permit in Germany.

Often it is only a small amount of money that decides on success or failure of a life plan.

Here, the association for the support of foreign students in Würzburg, which was founded in December 2013 comes into play. It is registered with the Register of Würzburg as a non profit organization. The fund that is solely supported by membership fees and donations intervenes to help foreign students accidentally fallen into financial difficulties.


 

 

Face to face: This offer is directed at students of the University of Würzburg. Two students with different native languages are paired to improve their foreign language knowledge and to exchange intercultural experiences. The language partners determine their own targets, strategies, content and learning time. They can also receive support and tips from the Language Center. Language speakers are always native speakers of the language they are offering.  

"Global Systems and Intercultural Competence" (GsiK) is a project unique to Germany, which joins 10 institutions from six faculties of the University of Würzburg. The goal of the project is to devolop a distinguished and scientifically founded teaching program for the acquisition of intercultural competencies of students. These skills are of increasing importance for students of all majors, considering the cultural pluralisation of the environment in which we live.
