We are looking forward to welcoming you as new international students to RWTH Aachen in the next Welcome Week from April 3 to April 6, 2018!
It is essential that you attend this event. Please plan to arrive in Aachen on time for the Welcome Week. The information you will receive during this week and the conversations with many advisors from the University and related institutions will guide you through your first steps in Aachen and help you navigate your transition to the University – academically, personally, and socially.
