Welcome to the Humboldt-Universität! At the beginning of your studies you will certainly have a lot of important things to do and you may notice lots of differences between your home university and the Humboldt-Universität. In this training we will help to answer your questions about studying in Germany and German "academic culture".

Already heard about AGNES? Do you know how to use it? And who should you turn to if you have special questions concerning your studies? The FAMOS Interkulturell team will show you how to effectively organise your university studies and will answer any questions you may have.

Do you know what your professor expects of you when you write an essay? What does giving a presentation with other students in Germany involve? In the training, you will gain insight into German “academic culture“, e.g., what is most important for your professor and how to communicate and work with other students.

In this training you will learn through easy and interactive exercises. Our skilled trainers will give you lots of tips and tricks. What’s more, you will get to know other international students and make new friends. This training is a lot of fun!

This training is also offered in German >>>.
