Due to the Coronavirus, our orientation program will be offered online.
The International Office offers an orientation program for degree seeking students and exchange students. During this program we organize special information meetings that will help you settle in and feel comfortable.
International degree students who would like to get some information and tips for preparing their stay at the University of Stuttgart can take part in the Pre-departure information web seminar (event in English).
What is to consider when planning your stay in Stuttgart? Please check:
Health care system, housing rules, getting around safely, sorting your garbage. Living in Stuttgart will be different to what you are used to. Join this online seminar and help yourself to a smooth start in everyday life!
Organizing your studies is a major challenge for your first semester. Students in our English taught Master´s programs will receive the handout Studying in Stuttgart for newbies, that gives an insights in the basics of academic life in Stuttgart, through their study program.
Important: Don´t miss the introduction of your study program!
Throughout the year we offer get-togethers and leisure time activities.
For exchange and program students who participate in the intensive German course in September or March the orientation program takes place during the language course.
Exchange students who do not participate in the intensive German course and arrive in October or April receive all information via e-mail.
