Campus Guides

Each semester, the International Office looks for volunteer "Campus Guides" to accompany incoming international students during their first term at the Ruhr-Universität.

In order to make it easier for incoming exchange and international regular students to start their studies, the RUBiss team of the International Office organises orientation days each semester. During these orientation days, important formalities are taken care of, counseling opportunities are offered, and incoming students are introduced to German culture and Bochum's surrounding area through various events and excursions. In addition to these services, Campus Guides offer their mentees informal support and guidance during their first days on campus and mentor them throughout their first term.
