A lot of students would like to spend time abroad. If you are one of them and are wondering how to go about this in the best way, why not come along to the event Grenzenlos 2012 - the international days at RUB.
Information stands in the Mensa foyer
On 7 and 8 November 2012, the International Office and the Careers Service will be present in the Mensa foyer between 11:00am and 3:00pm to provide RUB students with information about the many different ways of spending time abroad. International students studying at RUB, representatives from partner universities, the ERASMUS Student Network (ESN) and RUB students who have already spent time abroad will be there to talk about their experiences, either at the information stands or in the form of presentations. The University Language Centre (Zentrum für Fremdsprachenausbildung, ZFA) and the Bochum Institute of Intensive Language Training (Landesspracheninstitut, LSI) will introduce their programmes for the different language courses. The student-run organisations AIESEC and IAESTE and the Department for International Placement Services from the Federal Employment Agency will also be present to tell you all you need to know about carrying out internships and working abroad.
Representatives from the United Nations Organisation (UNO) will talk to you about careers in international companies. The coordinator of the ConRuhr offices in Latin America, Dr. Stephan Hollensteiner, will inform you about studying in Brazil. AKAFÖ Student Services will take care of the creature comforts and University Sports Bochum will organise the cultural event programme.
