Prior to the start of each semester, the International Office and Welcome Center organize an orientation period for all new international students.
There are a lot of events which provide a valuable opportunity to become acquainted with the University, the city, and it's surroundings.
For incoming international students in all degree-programs and exchange students in Winter Semester 2022/2023, the Orientation Week will take place at the end of September 2022.
German Intensive Language Courses
During this period, for exchange students and students in regular study programs, a German Intensive Language coursewill be offered which you can join for free. The course is a great opportunity to meet fellow international students and to get to know your new environment before the start of the semester. The course will be divided into groups of different levels. More information will be provided with admission.
You can also register for other language courses, which are held during the semester, once you are in Hof. Note that all language courses for enrolled students in regular degree programs are free of charge.
Moreover, in the Orientation week administrative formalities such as opening a bank account, city registration, rental contract etc. will be done. The International Office and Welcome Center will assist you with all these things. Thus, you can have a relaxed start when your actual lectures begin. You will be enrolled as a regular student at our University. Thus, you will have the same rights and duties as the German students. You will get your CampusCard (student ID, semester ticket) and access to Internet on campus.
