Student assistants

Even before you arrive in Dortmund you'll be in touch with students who work for the exchange coordinator at the International Office.

They will help you with questions on visa application, health insurance, housing, banking and almost everything that concerns your stay here. They will also help you with your first steps here in Dortmund once you have arrived. This includes meeting you at the train-station in Dortmund, taking you to your dorms and providing you with a whole bunch of information on the school and the city of Dortmund itself. Plus, they will assist you in case of emergency (e.g. if you lose your keys, etc.). They will also help you to open bank accounts and get student insurance.

You can email to
