Globalization and mobility nowadays influence our daily life and thus the lives of many students. Living in an international community means the inclusion of all cultures, languages and ways of life. We have to engage ourselves with new things in order to experience this diversity which, along with the new experiences, is sure to promote an expanded view on the world.
In our work, we adhere to the idea of a Global Village and want to enable open communication while offering all students at the universities of Bochum and the surrounding area an opportunity to get to know other cultures.
In addition to the advice centres of the AKAFÖ International Affairs Department, there are many other advice centres in Bochum. We will be pleased to support you in such queries as: „Where can I find accommodation? “, „Where can I find an insurance? “, „How much money do I need to survive? “, „Am I allowed to work while studying?“ and many other.
