At the Cultural Nights foreign students present their home countries and offer samples of traditional food.
Foreign students, who want to improve their German language skills, can register for the language tandem program of the International Office.

You can register for the program "Schule.international" if you want to gain an insight into the German education system and to acquire practical experiences alongside studying.
