Amicus Introduction Days
During the orientation days "AMICUS" you will receive information about the aliens law regulations. We will introduce you to important contacts during your studies. Student tutors from different departments will accompany you to your departments and give you hints and tricks for successful studies at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
If you decide to study in Germany and thus spend a longer period of time in a new country, you should also become familiar with the cultural differences and ways of life. This makes living together much easier and helps not to judge too quickly in some situations. Therefore, the International Office invites you to a one-day intercultural training as part of the "AMICUS" orientation days.
Please note: The language of the event is German. English-language Master's programs offer their own introductory events for their students. Please contact the program management for more information about this topic.
The dates of the "AMICUS" introduction days in German are usually in the week before the beginning of the lectures of the respective semester.
If you think of "typical German" stereotypes, it doesn't take long to come up with the associations punctuality and high work ethic. In addition, women like to wear "Dirndl", men drink a lot of beer and everyone separates their garbage. True or false?
What are the differences between our cultures? How can we communicate better with each other and learn to avoid cultural blunders? Learn more about this topic at the Intercultural Training of the International Office.
