General Information

Before the start of the Winter Semester, the Ruhr-Universität Bochum offers an orientation course for international students who are to spend one or two semesters in Bochum within an exchange programme (e.g. Erasmus).
You will receive intensive German classes – four lessons a day – in preparation for your study visit to the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We also offer assistance in all administrative affairs. Moreover, the course contains excursions and an intercultural workshop.

Up to 100 international students can attend this course.

Subsequently, you can attend our language courses during the semester.
