Geisenheim international – study & more

Utilizing potential, preparing transitions

The support services of the International Office and the Career Service have now been supplemented by "Geisenheim international - study & more", Hochschule Geisenheim University's project, funded by the Hessian Ministry of Science and the Arts and the European Union - European Social Fund - as part of the program "Open Universities - Utilizing Potential, Preparing Transitions".

The aim of the program is to improve the employability of international students and graduates of Hessian universities by improving the welcome and support which they experience.The „Geisenheim international – study & more“ Project is made up of six parts.

 

Multimedial Platform

A multilingual multimedia platform, the "Welcome Board", provides 'bundled' information relevant to international applicants and enables an early dialog with Hochschule Geisenheim University thus facilitating the transition to studies.

Integration begins in Geisenheim

Various measures such as excursions, workshops, regulars' tables, city tours and intercultural meetings are intended to promote intercultural exchange.

 

 

Pre-Study

Potential students are given equal opportunities and easier access to degree programs before they begin their studies through targeted support measures. An important area includes support in finding a pre-study internship required for admission to the German-language Bachelor degree programs.

 

 

Language

Subject-specific language acquisition is an essential key to professional competence. The German language is practiced and improved in a practical and problem-oriented manner.

  • Improving our 'welcome'
  • Early and sustainable integration of international students into the university and German society and of graduates into the German labour market
  • Easing the transition into studying as well as into working
  • Ensuring successful studies and reducing the number of students who don't complete their degree
