We are looking forward to welcoming you as new international students at RWTH Aachen to the Summer Semester 2017 Welcome Week from April 10 to April 13, 2017!

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. Rapid integration is key to both your well-being and your future success in your studies. For this reason, we specifically tailor the program to your needs. We hope you will enjoy participating in the event!
