Integration Talks will not be marked - they should help international students to get better orientation at the FH Dortmund and in Germany so that they can study better and graduate earlier.


What are the topics of the Integration Talks? ↓

As part of the relaxed personal conversation we will talk about personal previous experiences in terms of study course at the FH Dortmund, integration and the social environment. In addition students have the opportunity to identify issues with the integration, their study progress or in other areas. They can express their own wishes, suggestions, questions and also criticism regarding integration within the university and Germany in general. In case of problems with the integration, study organization or issues connected to study programme appropriate advisory services and offers can be shown or developed. The previous course of study and further study planning are also briefly discussed and tutorials for the processing of difficult course material can be established on the basis of these talks as well. Students will receive important and helpful information and hints for the studies and their integration at the university - e.g. about financing, health insurance, scholarships, aliens law, working in Germany, support and counselling services, leisure time activities, excursions and (informative) events for international students at the FH Dortmund and many more!
