Support for International Students After Their Arrival in Aachen

We also implement special programs for international students, such as UROP International .
Promoting International Togetherness
With the BeBuddy program and the active coordination of the Humboldt Haus, RWTH Aachen's international meeting point, the division ensures that international students and German students come into contact with one another, thus making internationality a lived part of the university experience for everyone. We make this internationality visible through the Certificate International. Additionally, the division supervises and promotes international student organizations at RWTH Aachen, awards scholarships on international students, and handles all the finances in the international area.
