Every beginning is difficult! As an international student, it is not easy to find your way around in a new environment, but all support is welcome. In the halls of residence, international students are looked after and supported by the tutors.
The tutors are seen as contact persons for the international residence hall tutors and provide first aid in case of worries, problems or questions. With their work, the tutors aim to contribute to improving the living conditions and integration of international students. In addition, the tutors organise cultural events to strengthen the sense of community and achieve successful integration.
The residence hall tutors are guided and supported by the coordination of the International Student Center (ISC)
. Every semester, an intercultural workshop is organised for the tutors. The intercultural training deals with topics such as intercultural communication, sensitisation, conflict resolution and examples from tutoring work. The tutors receive basic knowledge in dealing with international students, while exchanging ideas among themselves and learning from their own experiences.
