Foreign students at FAI

This page provides information and assistance for all foreign students (e.g., in ERASMUS or DAAD exchange programs, guest semesters, etc.) at the Faculty of Applied Informatics at the University of Augsburg.


The aim of the project "Promoting the Academic Success of Foreign Students" is to provide optimal support for foreign students at FAI - at the Institute of Computer Science and the Institute of Geography - during their studies, so that they can successfully navigate their academic journey. For further inquiries, in addition to Prof. Hähner, Jeta Kadriu is also available.
