Support the Welcome Week
The Welcome Week for new international students, which started as individual orientation days back in 2014, has grown to become one of the major events at RWTH Aachen University with a full program tailored to the needs of new international students and attended by over 1500 participants each year. The successful realization of these events would not be possible without the help and assistance of numerous players inside and outside the university, whether RWTH students acting as volunteers during the events, RWTH central services, and partners of the StädteRegion and Stadt Aachen providing advice virtually or in person, or external companies supporting the event as Welcome Week sponsors.
The Welcome Week network keeps expanding every year, continually increasing the variety of offers for the arrival and orientation phase for new international students. We are proud to count more than 70 partners from in- and outside the University as members of our Welcome Week network and to have received support from more than 500 Welcome Week volunteers over the years. The new student orientation phase is a defining moment in most international students’ academic lives and taking part in the Welcome Week fosters academic success on a long-term basis.
Being part of the Welcome Week program is not only beneficial to the international newcomers, but an enriching and profitable experience for anyone who is looking to present and promote services and offers for the target group, while diving into a multicultural atmosphere and fostering the smooth integration of new members of the RWTH and Aachen community.
